“In opera, as with any performing art, to be in great demand and to command high fees you must be good of course, but you must also be famous. The two are different things.”
“Trying to decide if you love a work of art is like trying to decide if you love a person, if you have to think about it, its not love.”
“He was found to be uncultured when he was caught not knowing anything about European history, opera, art and so on,”
“It's such an important work in the development of opera as an art form - the orchestra is not just accompanying, it's playing a big part in telling the story.”
“There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva.”
“If an opera cannot be played by an organ grinder, it's not going to achieve immortality.”
Sir Thomas Beecham
