s03e25 The Königin’s secrets

Klára Kolonits

What is the secret of the Queen of the Night? Why do more and more Königins show up at rocket speed, and why is it so frequent of them to retreat from the throne just as suddenly, even though the high F clearly doesn’t cause them problems and they continue to sing very high tessitura roles on stage and do high F in other pieces as well? We meet a new guest for this conversation, Mónika Fischl, with whom we talked on a July evening. With all honesty we share our successful and less successful experiences with the Queen of the Night, in what circumstances we started singing the role, how it reshaped our respective singing careers… and why we both decided it wasn’t worth to do it anymore?
