Years ago, I hosted an program about opera for NPR. Evelyn Lear and Thomas Stewart were frequent and gracious guests. I heard some of the best -- and funniest -- stories about their careers from my producer, as they were often told by one while I was on the other side of the glass, interviewing the other. Thomas Stewart was the greatest Hans Sachs EVER, and Evelyn Lear DEFINED the role of Lulu for everyone who has ever sung the role. But their relationship with each other was the greatest thing about them. I had never seen a couple whose warmth and affection for each other was so obvious. Two great people, and two great voices are gone, and it will be a VERY long time before we see their like again.
