Mama, I’m not going to warn you again

As if Tomotaka Okamoto weren’t enough, here’s another countertenor looming on the horizon: Max Emanuel Cencic. Now, don’t get La Cieca wrong. She loves her some countertenors, and she frankly adores how Herr Cenic rocks the tête de peau. She warmly congratulates him on his burgeoning discography and of course wishes him well in his impending Lincoln Center appearance (opposite Philippe Jaroussky!) with Les Arts Florissants.

But, seriously, dude, Moby called and he wants his album cover back.

And while we’re on the subject, maybe you should revise your official online bio. Probably, it’s just La Cieca, but that last sentence gives her the creeps:

Max Emanuel Cencic started his vocal training in early childhood, appearing publicly for the first time at the age of six. He sang the aria “Queen of the Night” in a television show. Subsequently, Max Emanuel Cencic appeared at several concerts and had guest roles at the Zagreb Opera. From 1987 to 1992, Max Emanuel Cencic was a member of the Vienna Boys’ Choir. In 1992, he started pursuing a solo career. By employing a special technique, he was able to continue singing soprano.

Yeah, ow. You know, it’s just like, ow.

UPDATE: Since La Cieca first informed her cher public about Mr. Cencic’s “special technique,” she has received an email from, ironically enough, the lovely and talented Herman Melville. Dear Herman encloses scans of album covers depicting the artist “before” and “after.”
