Your revision to this article not only removed referenced information from the previous version, it also pasted in verbatim huge chunks from here, complete with misspellings and incorrect names for various opera houses, etc. I and another editor have now re-formatted this (including the structure) to conform with the Wikipedia Manual of Style, as well as removing the promotional tone and unencyclopedic language. Please do not paste in material from other websites, it is a copyright infringement (which can result in blocking), and the tone is almost invariably unsuitable for an encyclopedia article. I've pasted some links above for new editors. I strongly suggest you also read Wikipedia:Copy-paste and Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing. If you have any connection (personal or professional) with Robert Hale, you'll need to read Wikipedia:Conflict of interest for guidance when editing under these circumstances.
