Wow! Great! And if you look at the clips on the right, I think there's even more from the same interview (on HvK etc.)! Thanks!

The Leontyne Price listens to part of Cleopatra's aria. Barber. clip - there's an awkward moment! She looks as if she's finding it difficult not to start singing... :-\ Anyway, what I wanted to mention is how funny it looks when a person walks by behind the window at the back. ;D

And maybe what she says in the Leontyne Price: Part of Interview Amsterdam 1996. clip could give you some hint of how to approach Puccini?

I don't know, just a thought... ::)

I'll just go on with my comments, as I watch the clips... ;D

Leontyne Price listens to part of Ritorna Vincitor,1996. - fascinating to see her mentally get into the role immediately. How she even changes her breathing... Fascinating! :D
