What absolutely horrible news. Robert was a gentleman and a nice guy. I spent time with him in Paris a number of years ago. We went to the Bastille - I can't remember the opera. It might have been Rosenkavalier or Macbeth. A great loss for his friends, this group we call opera-l but most importantly for his family. RIP dear Robert.
