Happy Birthday Maestro Wenarto

Still going strong after (approximately) 1,500 YouTube appearances, Our Own Maestro Wenarto celebrates the anniversary of his birth today. A recent sampling of the oeuvre, after the jump.

    A few of my own countless Wenarto jewels:

    Butterfly’s Entrance (inspired by Matthew Bourne?)

    Elvira in the Cathedral

    Der Holle Rache (subtitles by Kim Jong Il)

    Mozart While Chauffeuring La Caballero (was anyone else on the road aware of what was going on?)

    Basta!!! There simply are too many…

    To my adopted diva,Wenarto, HAPPPPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    I have my time machine ready…and we can together do that Puerto Rican duet, “Mira, mira,o Norma’ which I used to do with a friend BEFORE there was least no youtube….

    We can do it (a la Gina Cigna/Stignani)in the ORIGINAL KEY…I dare you to hit a real high C..never mind this Placido stuff…..

  • Rory Williams

    The Butterfly is my special favorite. I love the guy at the end of the line who’s texting at the start and then the clip closes with the camera zooming to a butt shot of him. Also love the Lowe’s insulation as the background.

  • Clita del Toro

    OT: Good news. Adam Diegel will replace Giordani at Wednesday’s Butterfly.

    • zinka

      Sad..Marcello is a great great tenor…why is he trashed??Take the bananas out of your ears..(Whose bananas?????)

      • Clita del Toro

        If deaf people like you would stop touting Giordani as as great tenor, maybe others would stop bitching about him.

    Happy birthday Wenarto!!!! The Butterfly entrance is the best!!!! I’ve cracked up over that video soo many times it’s genius.

      Vive Wenarto, but where does he find them?!

  • Tanti Auguri maetrissimo!

  • No wonder Maestro Wernato is always singing -- did you see the plastic doll he’s got parked in his bedroom?

  • I am curious to know Maestro Wenarto’s age….

      … and if he is ready to give us his Vec Makropoulos yet -- Emilia Wenarty, we cry out for you!
