One of the brightest voices in Scotland has warned she will leave the country if it chooses independece from the United Kingdom in a 2014 referendum.
Karen Cargill, who makes her Met debut in April as Waltraute in Götterdämmerung, told Tim Cornwell in The Scotsman that independence would kill the arts in her country.
“I think we’re stronger together, she said. ” People know I’m Scottish, I don’t really require an independent parliament.” If the worst comes to pass, the mezzo-soprano will emigrate with her Canadian husband to his country.
