I'm not sure why Charlie left him out, since he's mentioned quite
prominently in Hasting's article (in fact, I think that there's more ink
on him than on anyone else), but how about Giuseppe Sabbatini?  I'm no
Sabbatini maven, since I've only heard him in a few broadcast odds and
ends, but what I've heard sounds handsome and stylish, and I note that he
has been reviewed quite positively by many listers, with nary a voice of
dissent (love the new search capability on the WWW - try it!).

So the obvious question is: if he's so good as to feature prominently in
an Opera News article about Italian singers, why (again) isn't he singing
at the Met next season?
