... so we have:
1.) Zdenka/Zdenko in Strauss's Arabella
2.) Handel's eponymous hero Giulio Cesare
3.) perhaps Robert Hollingworth's take on Giovanni Croce...
Arabella's family are on their uppers and cannot afford to keep both children as daughters- so her sister Zdenka has to be brought up in trousers as the boy Zdenko
Giulio Cesare is a 'trouser role' for the soprano
R Hollingworth's 'Comic Faces of Giovanni Croce' features... "Poor Luckless Pantaloon"... :doh:
... Tapiola gets a well deserved U ...

I think I need a lie down after that, vinteuil. I would never have got that but for the extra clues, and mercia's help.
Time for a U.
Kenneth and Jack, among others, were on their Tod.
What is the connecting U?
EDIT: All 3 clues are musical, as is the answer.

Kenneth and Jack (among others) were soloists?
then it's Jack Thompson and Kenneth Montgomery and the Ulster Orch - also Tod Handley...
