On BBC4 on Friday 10 May at 7.30pm for one whole hour, Rolando Villazón probes The Genius of Verdi.
Let's hope it's as entertaining as his last BBC documentary, What Makes a Great Tenor.
If this is anything like 'What Makes a Great Tenor, then I think this will be entertaining and hopefully a bit informative as well. Maybe this is the way forward as he is certainly a great communicator for opera.
But I'll be giving his Verdi concert a miss - after hearing him at the Domingo Operalia gala last year, I can't say I'm remotely tempted by a live performance.

You should have been at the first night of his ROH La bohème in December. Ay caramba indeed!!
Between singers who no longer can, and those who simply don't, life is getting bumpy in Bow St.
At this rate, Morticia's batting average of turning up for and actually managing to sing about 50% of her house engagements is starting to make her look like old reliable. Roll on (her third) Rondine.....
