Breaking News: Canadian Peter Barrett Makes Met Debut
Just received the following press release from the Met - Newfoundland baritone Peter Barrett is making his Met debut this evening as Dr. Malatesta opposite a stellar cast of Anna Netrebko Norina and Matthew Polenzani as Ernesto. This is great news for Peter and for Canadian opera. He was a member of the COC Ensemble, and even at that early stage of his career, he had all the ingredients of a major singer - gorgeous voice, solid training, stage presence, musicality, and the drive and ability to excel. We say Bravo to Peter, and "Toi toi toi" for this evening!
