Well, John Raitt wasn't that far from a tenor so this doesn't bother me. As far as vocal casting, I question more Nettie==admittedly a smaller role--being sung by someone very much a soprano. As for Billy being a black man, it isn't just possible controversy having him hit his white wife. I'm thinking of his being a neer-do-well and the unexpressed thought that of course he is, he's black. Further casting may have to be crucial to avoid the appearance of Billy having to prove himself worthy to a white community.
