Oh, you know, don't you, wwh? That famous holdentenor who was born in a field covered with a tent-sized caul? Holdentenor Caulfield? Remember him?

Heldentenor? Oh, so sorry. Wrong vowel. Wrong tenor.

[Sorry, wwh. The devil made me do it.]

Ben Heppner. Canadian dude, very cool. I dressed him at the Santa Fe Opera in 1989 - his career has been quite a whirlwind since then! LOTS of Wagner, he's built a reputation on his ability to pull it off.

As a sideline, could this qualify as the first posting that's had only one response per year?
