The show must go on

I was fortunate to attend a performance of the Opera Company of Philadelphia's Otello, Verdi's masterpiece based on Shakespeare's play. It was incredible and most definitely worth seeing. In his best "the show must go on" tradition, Mark Delvan sang the role of Iago in a wheelchair 6 hours after he was released from hospital. He had been in the hospital to repair a tear in his meniscus that occurred during dress rehearsal.
