Professional Chameleons

I’m trying to make the mental leap from Papageno to Henry Kissinger and finding it downright difficult. However, it appears that baritone Patrick Carfizzi (our scene-stealing Papageno in “The Magic Flute”) has now inhabited the character of the former Secretary of State for San Francisco Opera’s new production of John Adams’ “Nixon in China” and earning critical plaudits. Here’s the “Wall Street Journal” review by David Littlejohn, which also covers SFO’s “The Magic Flute” (with Kristinn Sigmundsson -- who made an incredible impression as King Marke in our “Tristan” singing the role of Sarastro) and Verdi’s “Attila.”
