Forsooth Opera Lovers!

Today we can celebrate the birthdays of Richard Bonynge (1930-1972) and
Lisette Oropesa (1983).

Also, Dallapicolla's "Ulisse" and Romberg's "Blossom Time" premiered on
this date in 1968 and 1921, respectively.

Let us remember Richard Crooks (1900-1972) who joined Heaven's Choir on
this date.

The quote for today is:  "Today there are so many people wanting to
break into the singing business that they have to be well-trained
musically or they get thrown out. The major companies won't stand for
people who are unmusical or ill-prepared. In the old days, it was enough
to have a great voice. Coaches were provided and people were taught
their roles. It's not quite so easy today. I think a singer has to be
much more self-dependent than they had been in the past."     Richard

As always, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our birthday artists for today and
all forum members who share their birthday with them.
