This is a dream come true. Its the new aspect of my career maybe even my new face as a singer. Im saying goodbye to most of the lighter repertoire Ive done for 20 years. When I started singing, it was indeed my dream to do this sort of repertoire, but I really did think of it as a dream and I never thought I would actually sing such an incredibly beautiful role as Elisabetta on stage. When I think of the arias on this album, I felt in the past that I would never sing them. I was taught that Im a coloratura soprano, and that doing characters such as the Queen of the Night ruled others out. But Ive been in love with these arias since I first heard opera, and its very touching for me that Im now allowed to sing this music.
