Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
It does what it says on the wall.
What a great idea to cast Golda Schultz as Cleopatra! That promises to be an tantalizing “V’adoro pupille!”
is there an Egyptologist out there who can translate for us what it does say on the wall?
Not a problem, Fritz, it reads:
“Don’t worry dad. I’m wearing a strapless dress and sensible shoes”
Cleopatra will certainly be given her rightful voice when this glorious voice is given to her. Golda Schultz is exceptional, intelligent, ultra musical and beautiful. Will someone please record this performance and inform me if I can have a copy. Thanks..Jimmie Earl Perry
