What a pleasure it was to see these 5 former WTO singers on stage at San Francisco Opera on Tuesday evening and to catch up with a few of them after the show. (Below, with Brian still in character:))
In addition to the not all that well adjusted barber cited above, I also noticed that Morgan Pease, quite active last Summer as the Versailles Figaro and also at Vocal Colors, is now singing the Rossini Figaro at ENO. He earlier did the role of the Assassin who got what was coming to him in Ben’Cellini, also at ENO.
Oh, I would love to see that production.
