They’ve solved the missing tenor problem in Berlin’s sold-out Trovatore. The new Manrico singing opposite Anna Netrebko and Placido Domingo (baritone) will be Gaston Rivero, a Uruguayan-American working mostly on the German circuit.

In other news German tabloids are reporting that Netrebko is single again.



  • Anna might be single again , but Schrott already has a new lover , we have reports of him publicly making out with a younger version of Anna (kinda exotic- looking woman , slender and with black hair…..resembles anyone? ) are already coming from Madrid…..

  • No one’s slick as Gaston

    No one’s quick as Gaston

    No one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston

    For there’s no man in town half as manly

    Perfect, a pure paragon

    You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley

    And they’ll tell you whose team they prefer to be on

    [Chorus:] No one’s been like Gaston

    A king pin like Gaston

    [LeFou:] No one’s got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston

    [Gaston:] As a specimen, yes, I’m intimidating

    [Chorus:] My what a guy, that Gaston

    How does he sing?
