Jerry Hadley has died

Tenor Jerry Hadley has died a week after an apparent suicide attempt. I saw him twice that I remember — once in recital, which was very inspiring, and once in Harbison’s The Great Gatsby at the Met, where he was good but a bit impenetrable. It’s a great loss — he was one of the great American tenors of the last few decades.
