Bart & Placido

Nancy Cartwright’s “Simpsons'” session as Bart with Placido Domingo, taped  six months ago for  airing next month, was not their first meeting. Nancy’s  children and Placido’s grandchildren attend the same (private) school. And they also vacationed with them at Placido’s estate in Acapulco. As for the  taping session when  Placido was “Simpson-ized,” , Nancy says, “He was so funny and he kept presenting different ideas. He was having   the best time–and to hear just one note  of Placido set my heart flying.” (She had not heard him  sing with L.A’s.Opera).
