Which opera character could you imagine sharing a home with and why?
Susanna from "Le Nozze di Figaro" - as Contessa I would have a lot of fun with her, including changing clothes and cool interior design ideas!
Favourite quote from a work, an opera, a book, a Netflix series ...?
"Sempre libera degg'io folleggiar di gioia in gioia!" (Violetta, "La Traviata") ("Always free I must let myself drift from one pleasure to the next.")
Favourite place in Leipzig and why?
Besides the beautiful house of the Leipzig Opera itself? Maybe the shops and pubs on Karl-Heine-Strasse in Plagwitz - like Berlin and New York, only nice.
Favourite moment on the evening of a performance?
The end of my first aria; but basically every moment - I always want to get out and play!
