Last night I had the honor of getting to sing in a master class for world renowned bass Samuel Ramey. A master class, for those of you who don't know, is an opportunity for a guest artist to come in and coach students in a performance setting. (In a nutshell it is basically a one-on-one lesson but done in front of an audience).
While Professor Katz was giving an introduction to the audience-- "Mr. Ramey is the most recorded bass ever in history" "he is known for his portrayal of the devil in many different operas" "he has sung roles by composers from Mozart to Mussorgsky, from Bellini to Bartok"-- Sam leans over to me and says: "He left out the most important role I've ever done: I've sung on Sesame Street!"
So here you are folks... a collection of all the opera stars that have sung on Sesame Street!!! Oh, and by the way... I've met every single one of them! Now that my Opera/Sesamie Street collection is complete, I can now move on to the cast of Designing Women. One down (
Delta Burke), four more to go!
L is for Low (to the music of the Toreador from Bizet's Carmen) Look at those cape twirling skills! Btw I don't think his hair has moved an inch since this video.
