    20 Golden Rules for Singing Opera

    Sample: Everyone should pretend to have contact with the conductor. If you are a soprano, you do not have to follow this rule.

    It's just like the Tristan recording where Schwarzkopf sang the high C's for Flagstad.

    Only different.

    No . . . the famous 1952 Furtwängler recording, the first studio Tristan, featured a somewhat past-her-prime Flagstad who didn't feel she could manage the high C's in the Act II lovers' meeting. So Schwarzkopf sang them instead.

    You don't have to take my word for it. Ask Google.

    Darn. I write long posts too, and I do not have the advantage of having composed the Ring.
