MY LIFE AS AN OPERA SINGER
I'm an opera singer who can sings mezzo-soprano roles. That
means I play a variety of young princes, kitchen boys, peasant
girls and queens. Some composers, such as like Puccini, don't
give to mezzo-sopranos any parts, but I have had a lot of work
in every operas by Verdi and by contemporary composers. As I
cannot afford to turn down good roles, sometimes I have a
complicated timetable. Last year I have had to commute daily
between Uruguay, where I was performing in the evening, and from
Argentina, where I was rehearsing during the day. It's surprising
what you can get used to do!! Rehearsing takes up most of an
opera singer's time. By the end of this year I will have given
63 performances, and had rehearsed almost every day of the
year. I always look forward to performing in the front of an
audience. Recently my part in Greek meant I being on stage and
singing for most of the 90 minutes of the performance. On the
other hand, in some operas I have a few lines to sing. Often
when I get at home after a performance I can't sleep because the
still in my head.
