2000-01-29 00:00:00 - [SPOILERS] Virtuoso - Robert Picardo's Singing POLL - (ecruteshouNOSPAM@aol.com)


WARNING! SIGNIFICANT SPOILERS FOR "VIRTUOSO" - DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE EPISODE! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Okay, now, have you all seen "Virtuoso"? If you haven't, this poll won't make much sense and you may not enjoy the show as much if you're looking very analytically at the singing. But, if you've seen it... POLL: The Doctor sang about five times in this show. BUT, not all of the singing in the finished episode was done by Robert Picardo. Which songs do you think he sang, and which do you think he didn't sing? This includes "I've Been Working On The Railroad" (both in the teaser and in Act One), "That Old Black Magic," the duet from "Don Carlo," and the Neapolitan ballad. Bob Picardo suggested I take a poll on this after the show aired, so I think he might be interested in the results! After an appropriate number of days to allow all interested parties to reply with their answers, I'll post the results and spill the beans on "What Bob Picardo Did and Didn't Sing." -Cristy http://www.robertpicardo.com

It did not make sense until I read the Closed captioning then I realized it was both male and female voices together in the song. Michele

"Rondine al nido" by Vencenzo de Crescenzo was not sung by Picardo. Also, the holographic version of Picardo was a mixture of Picardo, the tenor that they got to sing "Dio, che nell'alma in fonder" from "Don Carlo" and "Rondine al nido", and a soprano. I was impressed with how closely they matched the tenor's voice to Picardo's, but neither of them truly represents a decent operatic voice. * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!

I think someone went beyond the 'call of duty' to >make those choices, and they deserve a nod of appreciation. Agreed. It almost seemed like he was intentionally squeezing the high notes to emulate Picardo's lack of a good top. (Insert bald joke here.) And I think they even tried to send that home with the "duet" that he sang with himself (paging Dr. Freud) by using the "operatic" tenor for both voices. * Sent from RemarQ http://www.remarq.com The Internet's Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!
