I sang the leading tenor role of MOSCA in GEORGE ANTHEIL'S opera "VOLPONE" for 30 performances iun New York in the summer of 1953. He composed the filmj music fdor my cousin MICHAEL BLANKFORT'S film made in Israel "THE JUGGLER" starring KIRK DOUGLAS. Michael was a top screenwriter for Twentieth Century Fox and Paramount Pictures. I am a Wagnerian heldentenor, an opera composer ["Shakespeare" and "The Political Shakespeare"] and the director of the Richard Wagner Music Drama Institute, where there is voice training and coaching in all the roles of the Shakespeare plays and the operatic roles of Wagner's oeuvre. My Juilliard background and stage experience have motivated my activities as a performer, composer and teacher. I am totally immersed in promoting the arts in every way I may, by performing in all the above mentioned activities.
