Opera is an expression. As operatic soprano Yunah Lee explains, “People scream when they’re happy or when they’re sad. We are able to do that in a refined way. It’s the same release. And it’s unbelievably fulfilling.”
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.
You can read the article, called The Timeless Art of Opera, online here (jump to page 62) or pick up a copy of the magazine in art galleries around the Wasatch Front and in every room of The Grand America Hotel.
