Oh, this is so sad. He was great the one time I heard him. And Trebs mostly did Russian stuff in SF and was tremendous in that. Bel canto, WHY OH WHY?

Alex said...

Wait...what russian stuff did she do at SF? She can still be guided...

Lisa Hirsch said...

Ruslan and Ludmilla; Betrothal in a Monastery; Tsar's Bride (which is sort of a bel canto opera, with a mad scene for the soprano! except that it is by Rimsky and was written around 1899. Trying to remember if there was any other Russian opera. She also did Musetta and Susannah.

Will said...

Susannah as in Mozart or, since you use the h at the end, Susannah as in Floyd? I'd love to hear her in either.

Hey,my verification word was tingled.
