Seconds away: Jessye Norman hits back at Deborah Voigtmain
Ms Voigt has a book coming out. In it, she tells tales on fellow-divas. For instance:
Covering for Jessye Norman, she learns the soprano must have the air in front of her misted with water to remove the dust as she walks onstage. ‘Don’t you think the HD cameras would just love to see Jessye Norman walking on stage with air being spritzed in front of her?’ demands Voigt.
The interviewer checked this with Ms Norman. ‘I’m afraid that is not a fact,’ Ms Norman told The Wall Street Journal.
