An interview book that has 3-10 pages of questions and answers per person by what's basically a Who's Who in opera. With a couple notable exceptions (no James Levine, Bryn Terfel, or Cecilia Bartoli) if they're a big name, they're in here along with many others. Really interesting insights into the art of singing and performing, the various factors that they each feel are important (Dessay says that singing is only 30% of an opera singers job!), and the views of opera from conductors, stage designers, administrators, and of course the singers. Really fun and entertaining read. Plus, one of the longer interviews is with the fabulous Diana Damrau, who I'm kind of in love with.

Naw, just smart / cultured. Although there is some superficial similarity between the two, there's only the one you'll ever need to worry about succumbing to.

Isn't there a minor coaching change on a Division II team somewhere that you need to make a post about w/ 43 follow up news articles?

Isn't there a couple bottles of 'zam Rx you're overdue to be swallowing?

Add them to the estrogen overdose you are on...
