I love this quote. I love the way it conveys the passion and emotion of opera, and the classiness of the art form.

The quote, which comes from my interview with soprano Yunah Lee that I did in October, is part of the article I wrote for Fibonacci Arts Digest about the way opera spans time and cultures, becoming one an ever-changing art form.
