Maltese Tenor Josheph Calleja at the Night of Proms at Royal Albert hall London 2012 with BBC symphony orchestra.
Maleth, they'd be justified in taking away my Italian citizenship if I didn't understand and speak Italian any more! It's just that I always try to find versions of Italian music of any kind that have English translations on screen so more people can enjoy them.
I was struck, as I often am, at the similar facial structure of most opera singers...almost without exception they have these large, broad faces. My friend who is a singing teacher tells me there's all sorts of reasons for that, but I'm afraid I start to (politely) tune her out when she gets too technical. She also says many of them are afraid to get too lean for similar reasons, although some of them take it too far, I think. Such a difference with dancers, who, especially lately, all seem anorexic.
