    The last time John Perry was a student at The University of Texas at Austin, he was planning for a career as an opera singer. That was in 1964. Perry spent more than 30 years performing in Germany, New York City and various other opera houses in the United States. He was Alfredo in “La Traviata,” Rodolfo in “La Boheme,” Faust in “Faust,” Tamino in “The Magic Flute” and Ruiz in “Il Trovatore,” to name a few.
