INTERVIEWS WITH SINGERS

Ermonela Jaho on her heartbreaking soprano roles

Albanian soprano Ermonela Jaho is renowned for heartfelt performances as some of opera's most tortured soprano roles, especially Violetta in La traviata, the opera in which she sprang to fame in London when she jumped in for an indisposed Anna Netrebko. 

Crossing borders: Roberto Alagna

Ahead of Vienna's première of Il trovatore, the tenor who crosses borders between France and Italy, opera and popular song, spoke to us about the roles of Manrico and Cyrano, being a gypsy, a hero, returning to Italy, about family and more.

Stuart Skelton on tackling Tristan

The Australian Heldentenor shares his preparations for learning Tristan, his thoughts on opera productions and his passionate views about the current state of Opera Australia and ENO.

Q&A: Lise Davidsen

Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen made a huge impact on the operatic world in the summer of 2015. We caught up with her ahead of her season as Artist in Residence with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
EXPLORING LIEDER

Follow my Lieder: Roderick Williams

Baritone Roderick Williams is a leading song recitalist, a regular at London's Wigmore Hall and makes his North American recital debut in February with a unique performance of Schubert’s Schwanengesang in New York's Park Avenue Armory. 

The delicate art of song

Undeservedly, Lieder recitals have a rarefied, old-lace aura that can scare off potential fans. Far from being remote and understated, their intimate nature closely connects singers with their audiences.
