Some people get bitten by the opera bug, but soprano Alison Trainer says she was bitten by bed bugs, lots of them, at Phoenix's Hilton Suites, and she's suing the HIlton Hotels Corporation for $6 million. According to the AP story, Trainer, who has appeared with the New York City Opera and the Phoenix Symphony, soldiered on and kept her singing committments, despite the bites on her face.
