Post subject: Wonderful in any opera era

If we could "magically transplant' some singers of today to ANY opera
era..I claim they would not be placed in any "lower level" that the
famous greats we know from recordings and some live experiences....I
speak of a few like these:

Di Donato
Zajick
Pape
Mattila
Quasthoff
Dessay
Netrebko
Giordani

and of course others...not everyone was a Chaliapin or a Gigli even
then......but they sure made a marvelous career.....
Not everyone is a "GIANT!"...
Yes..I would go NUTS for a Masini or a Favero or a Pinza..but I think
we do very well......at least we do not have any Primo
Zambrunos...Charlie

But among the many ironies of life, you, aging toothless opera clown,
had no career whatsoever. None. Nada, Zip. There really is a just
God. RBT

REGina
Daniel "Feca Fritter" Tritter

PERVERSIONS!!!!!
