In the opera world, it's been a month with more than its share of sad news.
Earlier in the month, tenor Jerry Hadley shot himself in an apparent suicide attempt, and was hospitalized; finally it was decided to remove life support, and he died yesterday.
And to hear Jerry Hadley in Kern, Lehar, Verdi, Bernstein, along with personal reminiscences from Thomas Hampson and John Harbison, go to the tribute to him created by Performance Today (available for one week).
