About Taminophile

Taminophile grew out a Live Journal community featuring profiles of singers of the mid-20th century's so-called golden age, called, not surprisingly, Operas Golden Age.  The mission was to feature singers who in many cases are only remembered by hard core opera queens afficionados today, who deserve a much wider audience.  Today's young singers and opera fans might not know of Risë Stevens or Norman Treigle or Virginia Zeani or Nicola Rossi-Lemeni.  And they should.  Singers like Joan Sutherland and Maria Callas don't need such efforts to remain in the public's memory.  Leyla Gencer and Victoria de los Angeles and Georges Thill, not so much.

Taminophile himself is a writer for this site and others, board member and occasional advisor to one of Manhattan's small opera companies, and some time singer himself.

Oh, and he has a day job.  Well, usually.
