  • Evenhanded

    Well.

    How absolutely terrible to see this notice. Mrs. JC and I had a bit of an online “thing” for several years (Ivy will remember it well), and I always had the utmost respect for his titanic storehouse of knowledge on just about everything related to art/music. Thank you sir, for sharing your detailed insights and most of all, for being so highly flawed and thus so vividly human. Your Viggo sends love and hugs to you in the great beyond.

    One of the best things about this site is the opportunity to converse with exceptional people -- and no one was more exceptional than Mr. Innaurato!. The world will be a less interesting place without him. Thankfully, so much of his thought and essence is documented for posterity on these threads and in his work.

    He will be missed though!!!

    Loved his plays! Rest in Peace!

    Just now getting the news, shocking and horrible. Much too young. I can only hope that wherever he is now, they have the best playlists, the best performances, and the best gossip.

  • Too tasteful to comment

  • Her debut at the Met was doubly dramatic – on one day’s notice she substituted on December 6, 1944, for Zinka Milanov as Leonora in Il trovatore eliciting acclaim from the public, the critics noting that all the vocal “virtuosity” and her stage presence as an actress were very impressive.[

    Zinka denied she replaced Regina…Resnik on the phone did a ZINKA..”I vas never seeck”…Rumo ris Zinka found in bed with woman’s hubby she came in and gave her black eye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY was I not under zeee bed. Regina did a better Zinka than Zinka……..

    watch for Regina special on CUNY channel Oct.6,7,8……..
