1 You’re 72. Slow down.
2 You’ve had a pulmonary embolism in the lungs. We caught it in time. Don’t risk another. Crossing the Atlantic a dozen times a year is the surest way we know to get a DVT. Think about it. Cut the air miles.
3 Singing is what you do. Carry on as long as you like. The rest is unecessary. You don’t have to conduct operas just because they want to put your name front of house.
4 Stress kills.Get rid of it. Why are you running Los Angeles Opera at your age?
5 How old was Pavarotti when he died? 71. Think about it
Any further questions?
