I aw and heard her several years ago as Liu in a Cincinnati Opera production
of TURANDOT. She sang beautifully, with AMPLE voice, and had a great success
with the audience. as to the WHY?, I can only guess. She was rather, shall i

>>>>>>>Is her voice smaller than it seems? Does it not carry? Is her singing
inconsistent? Does she not like/or does not study full opera scores (I've
read that she has performed Micaela in CARMEN and in some contemporary
operas)? Does she have another impediment to being hired that may not be


Best, Karl Ufert
