So thrilling a Summer….

What a rare opportunity to do this score of Cherubini, it is quite spectacular, and the drama is so deep and really disturbing.  I have never played a woman so very brutal and it will need special care from me to keep her always honest to that immense possibility of great love or violence, great potential for help or destruction she holds simmering under the surface.

The concert with Richard Bonygne is quite something akin to a dream.  I have since I was a little girl loved him and his work, and followed them, he and his stunning Joan Sutherland wherever I could hear them sing.

And here we are in this fabulous program with the great Randy Mickelson at the  helm of the historic restoration.  Must work diligently and deliberately to be ready.


What a blessing to return to Brasil in this glorious way before a public I adore…….
