Firstly, I think I need to apologise for the complete lack of activity on this blog recently – this is an outcome of the laziness that I feel is acceptable during the summer holidays and also because the summer is not the most active time in the opera world anyway.
This video is Leontyne Price on some old (I don’t know how old) TV programme and the contestants have to guess who she is by asking her questions and it’s very funny.
This is a documentary that was broadcast on Arte TV last week, about the making of Joyce DiDonato’s Drama Queens. It is, however, in French, so if you can’t understand it well enough, some of the interviews are available without the French voice-over.
