Response to What Happened To Opera?:
This article is good, but needs to be redone, because you left out the following fantastic African-American opera singers: Lawrence Brownlee-same tenor as Florez, but in my opinion, MORE AWESOME!
Latania Moore-lyric spinto soprano (she made her Met debut as Aida last season to rave reviews)
Pretty Yende-lyric coloratura soprano who took over for Diana Damrau in ‘Le comte Ory’ this season; won top female prize in the Operalia competition Other than that, this isagreat article and list-opera definitely has changed from the horned lady withaspear! This professional opera singer thanks you for making her day!
