I looked up some statistics and came with some interesting data on career  
longevity. Louise Homer made her debut as Amneris at 22 and sang her last  
performance at age 57. Blanche Thebom sang her debut at 29 and sang her last  
performance at 59. Giuletta Simonato sang her debut at 18, but basically 
sang  small roles until her 30's, and sang her last role at age 56. Ebe 
Signani sang  her first Amneris at age 21, and sang her last role at age 54. 
Fedora Barbieri  made her debut as Amneris at age 20, and sang her last role some 
time in her  seventies. She sang long beyond when the bloom was off 
relatively early. Zajick  made her debut at age 22, and like Simionato sang small 
roles until her  thirties. Zajick is 58. I want to know what she eats for  
breakfast.

Zajick -  no one has sung this role so well at that age -  ever.
