It’s My Birthday, I’ll Play What I Want Too…


Screen Shot 2014-08-22 at 11.23.58 PMIt’s my birthday.  I’m celebrating it by playing what I want. Let’s start with my very, very, very favorite piece of opera. I love this. Quite frankly, I never could see why Tosca stabbed Scarpia. Frankly, I’d have dumped the tenor and run off with the barihunk!  I’ve put together a little recital for moi.  Naturally it features Sherrill Milnes and Dmitri Hvorostovsky.  We really don’t want tenors, right?

And – I found an OMG moment!  Milnes doing Maria!

I seem to remember several birthdays spent at the Met, with Milnes.  (Sigh). Then there is Milnes morphing into Wyatt Earp. What more can a baritone junkie want in this life?

Opera is soul food.
