Today is mostly filled with this gem of a work. It's been a while since I sang this high lying,haute-contre type role, and gosh it's seriously high! Especially with a modern orchestra. I've been singing broader roles of late, so it's good to come back to this.
Vocal variety i think is important for me, it helps to keep my voice in good shape. With all the different repertoire I have to work at my technique, which is no bad thing, also looking at the production I'm in a dress and heels, so immediate crash diet, which is also no bad thing.
performances in January 2017 with Oper Stuttgart
