Placido gets a "nose" job - CNN News

Here is the LINK
It is only available in RealPlayer, sorry. Don't blame me, blame CNN. This is the synopsis of the story:Opera star has 'nose' job (2:36)

Placido Domingo is getting a bigger 'nose' for his role Cyrano de Bergerac at the Metropolitan Opera. CNN's Jeanne Moos explains (May 4)

Why is this a big deal? Well, for opera singers "the mask" is everything. Without getting into a huge technical discussion (email me or use the comments below if you REALLY want to know) it is the part of the face around the nose and mouth that resonates as you sing. Singers can actually FEEL this sensation, and it often helps them determine if the sound is "placed" correctly. For Placido Domingo to wear a prosthetic is a great risk, a risk of the "how cool" variety.
Rock on with your bad self, PD.

As you can see, WOD has had a bit of a facelift - thank the way cool owner of Soundque for letting me do web design stuff on company time.
