Dismissed: Tenants lose, landlords win in Baltimore's rent court

Tenor in his 70s may become oldest person ever to sing demanding title role in Verdi's 'Otello'

Check out this nice little feel-good story: Jon Andrew, a hearty 77 years old, aims to sing the title role in Verdi's Otello, in June. If the British tenor gets through the performance, he'll establish a record of sorts.

Otello is a killer role, virtually Wagnerian in its technical demands, and not that many tenors of any age tackle it. Should be interesting to find out how this guy does. I imagine Verdi would be rooting Andrew on -- after all, the composer was in his 70s when he wrote this towering opera.
