I was his understudy in La Traviata, he arrived just before the second act and everyone was anticipating that I was going to perform.  That did not happen.

I have understudied quite a few sort of famous singers but I will give them no mention.

Nicest man, funny and a wonderful performer.  I made my national American debut in I Pagliacci as Silvio in Providence RI.

almost Joan Sutherland and Cristina Deutekom

Disappointing cancelations, a Lucia with Joan Sutherland me Enrico and the count in La Sonnambula with Cristina Deutekom.  Talk about being depressed and unhappy but guess what, I survived.
