Response to What Happened To Opera?:
They forgot to metion how many bad singers there are today. Todays singers cannot holdacandle to the great singers of the past. We do not haveaRosa Ponselle, an Enrico Caruso, Leonard Warren, Jussi Bjorling, Bidu Sayao, Renata Tebaldi, Tito Schipa, Beniamino Gigli, oraGiuletta Simionato. Many of todays stagings are rediculous. The quality of Opera today is inferior. The art form has lost its way. Singers today sing notes and do not get into the heart of the character or the opera. Todays singers are dull and boring. There are very few exceptions.
