"One of the most highly musical and interpretively interesting singers of our time"
-- Lynn Renée Bayley, Fanfare Magazine 2014
"I'm greatly looking forward to the final dress rehearsal tonight of Il Trittico at Opera Holland Park and so happy to be involved once again in this wonderful creation of Puccini. Interesting article in yesterday's Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/opera/11637719/Il-Trittico-Puccinis-most-underrated-opera.html where Rupert Christiansen says that Il Trittico is a masterpiece and deserves a wider audience. He also asks if it's time has come at last!!! Well I can tell him that it's time came a long time ago in Europe's Opera houses where I was lucky enough to be involved in some of them as Giorgetta, Suor Angelica and La Zia Principessa.......(I attach a little foretaste of a slightly different look in that role, now at OHP) One production stands out vividly when after a performance of Il Tabarro (in which I had performed Giorgetta), I was able to sit in the audience afterwards and watch Tito Gobbi's production of Gianni Schicchi with the legendary Rolando Panerai,......he was truly the greatest exponent of this role! Here I am as Giorgetta in that Munich performance in 1983 alongside Carlo Cossutta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CZ5dE0WLrA"Posted on 30th May 2015 11:18 - Read on Facebook
