FINALLY!

Postby OperaTenor » Mon Oct 09, 2006 12:31 pm

My SDO contract came in the mail Saturday. I'm signed for four out of five for the coming season: Boris Godunov, Il Trovatore, Samson and Delilah, and Wozzek. My best yet!

Add my congratulations to the growing list. Boris is my second favorite opera. Will it be the Rimsky-Korsakov version?

Shos, I can't say for sure but based on this link I'd say we are getting the original Mussorgsky, as well as the great Italian bass, Ferruccio Furlanneto(sp?) the only Italian to sing 'Boris' in Moscow.

Tsk tsk tsk. Il trovatore was written by Joe Grteen, so it couldn't possibly be my favorite. Everyone knows Jack is my favorite composer.

The favorite, and the standard by which all operas should be judged, is of course Turandot.

:scooter:

Shos, it's Mussorgsky.

Thank you for the congratulations, everyone!

Wow, OT really is happy with this contract. That was a positively gentle correction! :lol: :D

I just realized I am moving in to a segment of society where I never ever imagined I'd find a place. I'm going to be .....
