I love opera because it’s such a fantastic,
total art form. It’s the only one that combines all the others
into one strange, new thing. It is the most intense experience that I think
you can have in the theatre – when it comes off – it’s not always the case. And it’s different every night, which is also
exciting and challenging, and scary. It’s an extravagance in a way, as well. It’s incredible to think how many people work
together to try to create a wonderful evening for an audience.
