Jenna Douglas at Schmopera has compiled a fascinating list of the singers who made most appearances at the Metropolitan Opera. Top of the ten is the tenor Charles Anthony, who died three years ago, aged 82.
He sang 2,928 times between 1954 and his retirement in 2010.
The next nine are also men.
Has the Met got something against women of mature years?
Or have they perhaps got better things to do?
See Jenna’s list here.
UPDATE: And here‘s the woman who sang most.
