José Carreras, survivor, turned seventy-two on December 5. Having lost a cousin and several friends to the cancer which hit him, this is something to be celebrated. His triumvirate with Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti made him a rare operatic superstar. The three of them literally changed the face of opera.
I saw him do Cavaradossi at the Met.
They should have called them The Three Hams instead of The Three Tenors!
