Giordano / Giordani

Solving the Giordano vs Giordani puzzle:

Nicola Rossi Giordano, tenor, replacing someone at Chicago Lyric, he is a Verdi and Puccini specialist.

Marcello Giordani, tenor, has just bowed out at the met because of severe laryngitis. This probably means vocal problems. He has been known to sing Arnold, the role with all the high C's in Rossini's William Tell.

Maybe one of them should change his name.

You've forgotten Massimo Giordano.

I've not actually heard any of them.

And I thought that NRG had pulled out of Chicago. He also pulle dout of B cast Tosca at CG.

NRG? I could see it catching on
