Yes, I know people love him. My friend studied

with Enrico Rosati, teacher of Gigli,Lauri-Volpi,

and Lanza. His voice was souped up, but

essentially probably fine..BUT what he does

at the "le dolce brezze" makes me want to

shoot him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...but in small groups I did some bass

roles......but it was fun,despite the fact

I was no Pinza.  With dear Jennifer Zarchy.

Be kind!!!! Remember, I can't read music!

  I saw his Met debut and 40 more times.

  Yes, he could be a pain...but a fabulous

  man on that stage. Note the B flat Celeste

 Aida DIMINUENDO. Friends of mine and his

loved him as a person. In the book it tells

how he and wife Loretta fight in a hotel room.

I asked Frank Guarrera, "With SAUCE???"


   NO one like him and Del Monaco today!!!

Rather controversial figure but sometimes

people are Goering to separate his possible

Nazi connections from his art. I can do that,

but not everyone can...but a GREAT MAN!!!!

  If you asked me what 5 singers of the past I would

most want to hear, Ebe Stignani would be one. The

others I guess would be Lehmann,Caruso, Muzio 

and Eva Turner.  Stignani never came to the Met,

another one of their stupid mistakes.

can sing like Anna, I do not care

if she looks like a hippo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love my friend Olivia Stapp's "Giudici."

  However, when Ramey, Galvany, and I

 did it in 1970, she held the D so long

I ran out of breath!!!!!

  Listen to that ending!!!!!!!!!

OH!!!Calisto Bieito loves to stage

those Verdi operas in a "traditional"

manner...  E pazzo!!!!!

Luciano must have had a great

time with Isola Jones. They

always had to make doors wider

so she could enter. I once told

Soviero to wear metal panties,

knowing what he enjoyed!!!

Someone did not like some

post I made on Facebook and

they blocked me two days.So you

are getting more videos! Good

is better than Callas?????
