I was just listening again to the incomparable rendering of the Jealousy Duet from Act 3 of Verdi's Otello by Mario Lanza and Licia Albanese. As I looked at the CD cover I suddenly realised that this would now be deemed "blackface." How utterly risible!! How many tenors and opera directors will now be burned at the stake? And Shakespearian actors who played the Moor with similar make-up?!
