Re: Would Leon Escalais survive today?

His registration seemed pretty light. What category would he belong to today?

Re: Would Leon Escalais survive today?

Would his voice be big enough to be considered heroic today?

I used to post on GT, but I prefer to keep my old nick to myself. Fresh start. Nice work!

Would Leon Escalais survive today?

I was listening to this voice and started wondering: would Leon survive today's world? Would it be the same voice, or do you think he would have to sing so differently that he'd be a different fach, for example?

He's a good tenor. He lost his machine gun vibrato a long time ago. He just never secured his top, especially high C and higher. The high B is there, most of the time.
