ENO’s Aida: Some English words are ridiculous to sing on high notesmain
Latonia Mooore, one of the most commanding Aidas of present times, is about to make her debut at English National Opera. Latonia, like so any others, is struggling with the company’s insistence on singing in English.
UPDATE: We took this post down after Bachtrack complained at the use of their interview. Readers, however, have asked us to restore it since the comments sparked an interesting debate on opera sung in English. So it’s back.
The key quote from Latonia’s interview is: Some words were ridiculous to sing on high notes.’
