You say that in 20 years you will have perfected the role. I doublt I will be going to the Opera then if I am still here, but to me, the performance I saw was july 2 and we both thought you played the role fantastically and from the audience reaction as the conslusion I think a lot of those present totally agreed with me. I am not a critic or a music student I just a person who enjoys Opera. ( well some Operas)
