The British soprano tells the Daily Telegraph:
‘I have kept my technique in very good order because I have had singing lessons every week of my life for 40 years, but basically three letters – HRT.
‘It is the saviour of the soprano. I want you to put it in black and white, HRT is the most wonderful drug.
‘I’ve been taking it for 20 years because I had a very early menopause, six months after my daughter was born. I think she was probably my last egg. And I’m never going to come off it.’
