"Astonishingly, Berry never played on stage in London the role with which he perhaps became most closely linked, Papageno, despite a career on stage that spanned more than 40 years."
But wasn't the EMI Classics recording of the Magic Flute with Otto Klemperer from a performance in London? Maltodextrin (talk) 07:26, 22 June 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Maltodextrin (talk • contribs) 07:22, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I question the whole sentence. Who exactly is being astonished, and why? He was Austrian; he sang with the Vienna State Opera his whole career, and he also made some appearances abroad, such as the Met in NY. Why was there some expectation that he should have sung in London, and why shouldn't that be extended to La Scala, the Paris Opera, La Monnaie, or wherever? We're here to tell people what did happen, not what didn't happen, unless the absence of something was completely abnormal and exceptional. -- ♬ Jack of Oz ♬ [your turn] 08:16, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
