The second act of Nozze di Figaro begins. Beautiful orchestral intro. The curtain slowly goes up. The Countess sits in the middle of an elegant room, in a magnificent Rococo dress. What happens in the singer’s brain? Anyone who has already sung this role will most likely be able to answer this question similarly to myself. In this unusual episode, I tell you about my relationship with the Countess role and show the moment of “redemption” that took place during one of the OperaLab performances.
