I saw James Johnson's MET debut in MEISTERSINGER 12 years ago.  He was
excellent.  He is Wotan in much of the Copenhagen RING videos, and gives a
strong performance.  Getting on in years, he is something of a specialist
in this repertory and should be fine.  Good Sachs's don't grow on trees,
particularly on short notice.  Cincinnati should be pleased to have him.

I don't know Ms. Robinson's work and cannot comment.

You really only need two things: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If something is
stuck and it shouldn't be, use WD-40. If it's moving and it shouldn't, use
Duct Tape.
