Italian tenor MARCELLO GIORDANI has completed a rare feat in the history of New York's Metropolitan Opera - by performing the leads in two separate shows in one day.
The opera star took to the stage on Saturday (22Nov08) for a matinee performance as the title role in Berlioz's La Damnation de Faust.
Just a few hours later, Giordani returned to star as Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly after a colleague called in sick.
The tenor, who has been hailed as the "Iron Man of tenors" by the Metropolitan's general manager Peter Gelb, joins only a handful of other stars who have taken on the challenging task - most singers only perform two or three times a week.
