    If my brain weren’t so overloaded by trying to keep up with Joss&Main, T&Lo, and a multitude of other Kewl internet stuff, I am sure I would be dazzled.

    I loved the Carmen. It is a complete work of art. This guy is a complete artist. Also, his singing of Tamino’s aria is just lovely. Thanks to LA for bringing him to our attention.
