COMMANDOpera is well aware this was announced a week ago, however the re assignment of Miss Deshorties to The Aspern Papers at the Dallas Opera certainly merits further attention. Interesting historical footnote: Miss Deshorties stepped in as Desdemona at the last moment for the entire Otello run of the Dallas Operas debut production at the Winspear theatre. In this instance Miss Deshorties will replace Miss Carol Vaness who was originally announced, but was obliged to withdraw for medical reasons. Mr. Nathan Gunn and Miss Susan Graham will also be on hand for this rarity. What is even more interesting for those who observe, is that when a call arrives from the Dallas Opera, ranking global artists immediately find a way to juggle their calendars to appear on those boards.
