Thank you for  this Mr. Frey… to Mr. Kubiak, I would recommend that you don’t 
opine about any piece without having heard it, it is a pretty silly thing to 
do.
In case you decide to expose yourself to Kaufmann’s strenuous rendering of 
Mullerin, you will hear a young man filled with childlike enthusiasm, joyful 
in love, outraged in anger, desperate in sorrow, and finally tranquil and 
peaceful in his sad end, totally heartbreaking.  It does not get any more 
manufactured than that.

    An adequate ruse and a flawed device for lighting a fire under the 
Board.  Who knows????  There may be people on this Board who actually will 
take these words seriously and demand Mr. Frey's head on a silver platter. 
A worthy attempt, but just too obvious.

soprano. Talk about strenuous vocalization and manufactured technique. She 
was unbearable in all her roles, singing everything like the queen of the 
scream diva she ached to be. Kaufmann is the male version of an artist with 
all hype and no delivery. He ruined Chenier, Werther, Otello , Lohengrin, 
Carmen and every role he feebly attempted. He should be legally banished 
from the opera stage and the recital hall. I buy all of his cds just so I 
can cringe along with him as he struggles to be great. I would also pay $200 
to hear him live just so I could scream "Bravo> as loud as I could just to 
fool him into thinking he is one of the best tenors we have today..
