I wanted to thank all those listers who responded to my "William...TELL!"
pasticcio and give a sort of compendium of the more interesting casting
choices....First, drawing on current artists and keeping in mind the music
they were allocated to sing:

PERSONAGGI                                 INTERPRETI

Presidente degli Stati Uniti                Bryn Terfel
Guglielmo (dopo il coltello)
Primo Soprano Castrato                    David Daniels

Prima Donna degli Stati Uniti             Edita Gruberova

Favorita del Presidente                      Ruth Ann Swenson

Una Donna Cattiva                            Gwyneth Bean

Lucia-Ann Citta D'Oro
Factotum                                         Marilyn Horne

Michele McCurry
Ministro                                           Jerry Hadley

Riccardo Nixon
Una Voce dal Inferno                        Nicolai Ghiaurov

A sampling of other suggestions drawing from both past & present:

Il Presidente:  Stilwell, Hampson, Baer, Bechi

Illary:  Dimitrova, Barbieri-Nini (the first Lady Macbeth), Callas, Scotto,
Barstow (interesting...but could she handle the florid stuff?)

Monica:  de los Angeles (for a more sympathetic read), Fleming, Stratas, Moffo

Linda:  Ludwig, Norman (think of  those Erda-like lows), Resnik (perfect

Lucia-Ann Citta D'Oro:  Votipka (inspired), Chookosian (equally inspired...,
could be  a great "Linda" too)

Voce dal Inferno (R. Nixon):  Chaliapin, McCurdy
