Nelson Eddy sang Wolfram in Tannhauser in 1934 and Amonasro in Aida in 1935 at the San Francisco Opera.

Calling anyone who sings an operatic aria in a movie or on a TV talent show an opera singer belittles those artists who worked long and hard to become a true opera singer, Would you call Lanza, Jane Powell,Jeanette McDonald, Jackie Evancho.  Susanna Foster, Nelson Eddy opera singers? I won't and you can't make me. PS I love and enjoy them all but I must be realistic.

Hermine didn't seem to be bashing Lanza paricularly, but she did indulge in one of her typically whimsical irrelevancies by dragging in Rudolf Schmidt and Bette Midler!

When I responded to the original question from Miguel di Virgilio concerning Opera magazine's apparent editorial divergence on the status of Lanza and Bocelli as opera singers, I suggested that if they had labeled the former a "not bono-fide opera singer", they might just as well have done the same with the latter.  No one has subsequently addressed that issue, but at least one regular poster to the list chose instead to mock Mr. di Virgilio and me because we CORRECTLY accused him of misreading the original letter:  just two examples of the seriousness with which some choose to discuss opera-related topics.
