Singer

Famous quotes containing the word singer:

    The question is not ... if art is enough to fulfill my life, but if I am true to the path I have set for myself, if I am the best I can be in the things I do. Am I living up to the reasons I became a singer in the first place?
    Kathleen Battle (b. 1948)

    Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
    The sweetest singer in all the forest’s choir,
    Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true Love’s tale:
    Lo! yonder she sitteth, her breast against a briar.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)

    The real exertion in the case of an opera singer lies not so much in her singing as in her acting of a role, for nearly every modern opera makes great dramatic and physical demands.
    Maria Jeritza (1887–1982)
