    James Maddalena is a celebrated American opera singer. the verb here is "is", with "celebrated" acting as an adjective. Audiences have enjoyed Maddalena's dazzling voice for many years. the verb here is "have enjoyed", with "dazzling" acting as an adjective. His ability to perform is known throughout the world. the verb here is "is known" with "to perform" acting as a part of speech I don't recall at the moment, but observe that the sentence would make sense without it: "His ability is known." Portraying Richard Nixon in the 1987 opera Nixon in China was his breakout role. Simplified version of sentence: "<something> was his role." Verb in this sentence is "was". <something> is the subject. Your answer is?
