As always, renee Fleming sang and actied beutifully, but the tenor that was "Otello" wasn't my favorite.
And to think that Ms. Fleming is almost 55 years old!

I can't help remembering hearing the late, James McCracken sing this role when he came to Seattle.
I was singing in the Opera Chorus at the time.

Mr. McCracken and his wife, Sandra Warfield had previously starred in: "Sanson et Dalila."

That tenor had only one thing with McCracken: they both sweated a lot!

I have subscribed to "Opera News" for many years and was sorry to read that Sandra Warfield had also died.

I find that it's almost enough to see Ms. Fleming, let alone hear her sing!
