> prematurely  singing demanding roles

We seem to fall into the trap of thinking that lyric is a passing stage. It
is in fact, a voice category. Freni and Kraus stayed within what their
voices wanted to do.

Kraus once sang a Rodolfo, but he felt it was too heavy,a nd took it out of
his repertoire immediately and forever.

Sometimes managers flatter singers and tempt them with assignments that need
to be filled, regardless of whether they suit the singer. The results are
always tragic when the role is too heavy. After a short while of doing heavy
stuff that is unsuitable, the voice loses its char, flexibility, and sadly,
there is not turning back.

The career is about knowing how to sing and what to sing. Oh, and when. And
lots of other stuff.
