As I’ve mentioned before, I am a sucker for anyone who’s able to communicate classical music in a humorous way online. Which is why I’m completely enamored by baritone Robert Orths homepage biography, posted today by one a concert hall manager Facebook friend of mine.
From the bit about Orth having “clawed his way to the middle”, via the “toothy smile” and to the self irony when it comes to the listing of only moderately prominent stages on which he has appeared, it is pure genius and a great spin on the usual, pretty generic singers resumés.
Well played, Robert Orth. Well played.
