Foreword by Thomas Hampson
In this long-anticipated volume, the gifted baritone of the Metropolitan opera and the world opera centers, Thomas Hampson, states in his Foreword, "When asked what my most important and first reference point is when preparing an operatic role, I without hesitation acclaim Nico Castel's translation series available from Leyerle Publications... Nico's...is by far the most intuitive, knowledgeable, practical and useful study tool on the market today... The diction tools he offers allow singer and listener alike to unlock the compelling psychological motivation inherent in any operatic plot... There are not praises high enough for this collection and gratitude deep enough for Nico's contribution to the understanding of the vocal arts."
