Stay true to yourself, and enjoy the music…it seems like something so simple, but it’s not to be taken for granted
The biggest challenge came at the very beginning – to stay true to my technique and my natural voice, no matter what the greats of the opera business were saying when I just started out.
Never stop learning and trying out new ideas. Slowing down is a luxury that we, people involved in arts, simply cannot afford.
Success for me is to be continually growing artistically, and therefore an inspiration to those we collaborate with. I find it unhelpful to think too much about how an audience will receive what I do (other than when programming). Success for me means staying true to myself.
I am always seeking to develop my musical language. I hope it is flexible enough to adapt to a wide variety of circumstances.
Who or what inspired you to pursue a career in music? Many things and many people have inspired me, and sometimes they are very different
