Almaviva traveled to Budapest to interview in person formidable veteran opera singer Ms. Sylvia Sass, one of the greatest sopranos of her generation. This Grande Dame of opera is a charming, intelligent, and multi-talented lady who is also a very recognized painter, as well as the author of three books and a libretto for a new opera that is in its final stages of creation. Opera Lively is honored to have talked to such an extraordinary artist. Our staff member MAuer has contributed with questions. Regarding photo credits: almost all pictures here with the exception of those from the Castel Sant'Angelo and from the Sacher Hotel in Vienna were recovered from Ms. Sass' official web site. Ms. Sass did tell Almaviva verbally and in person that Opera Lively was allowed to use photos from her web site. There were no specific credits found, so that is why they haven't been quoted.
