I remember reading Simon’s name in the chorus of Scottish Opera and am so glad he is doing so well. I hope his wife is fully recovered and that his voice has had the rest it needs. Please send my best wishes from a Scottish Opera fan who now lives in Switzerland.

Hi everybody. Just a couple lines to share the joy of discovering Simon for the first time. We got awesome Opera singers where I come from. Maybe that’s the reason why I never came across Simon Keenlyside. And as with brand new romances, now everything begins and ends with Simon. I’m so glad to know he is such huge star, well known and recognized. It might seem difficult to fall in love with somebody with a duck on the top of his head. But there you are: I’m always attracted to finest things. By now, he just saved “the Magic Flute” for me. Listened to it a thousand times, but only I liked -and understood- Keenlyside’s. Grateful to him forever. Casto, Madrid, Spain.

The August issue of OperaNews has an article about Robin Ticciati, and Simon’s comment was quoted in it.

Enjoy reading!

Interesting that Simon will sing in Oliver at Grange Park next year. Is that instead of, or in addition to Hamlet?

gawd help us says critic who doesn’t approve of cheque-book signings (e.g. bryn terfel currently in fiddler on the roof).

Hi, all!

I just received my copy of Opera News, The Metropolitan Opera magazine, and there is a wonderful article entitled “Settling the Score, Well, she should never be singing that.” It has a long section on SK that is great.
That section is headlined: “The term ‘Verdi baritone’ is so nebulous as to be meaningless.” Their online address is: http://www.operanews.com. If they won’t let you re-print the article, I will be happy to type the section on Simon and send it to you.
