well at least she can sing !
I think she’s quite marvelous!
Yeah, I could see that, maybe.
But I bet you could make at least as good an argument for Patricia Petibon (who probably wouldn’t make the claim herself).
Hmmm … Karita Mattila is said to make her recital dresses herself. I wouldn’t mind seeing her do up some Lady Gaga-worthy costumes for a recital program. And because she’s can be so funny, it would probably be a blast!
Very odd voice, dry, ungracious to my taste. And her coloratura work is not that good. She is a pale and cheap imitation before DiDonato, Bartoli and Larmore.
