    Best way to enter the stage for a soprano, ever

    OK, folks, she sings well too (she certainly has the required range) although she could use more dynamic variation like others do with this aria.

    But the reason I'm posting this, is how she entered the stage (and also exited). Hilarious!

    Here she did better, vocally (and tried to mimic Anna Netrebko's immortal version, throwing flowers to the public like Anna did). Well, she is no Anna, but she wasn't bad. Still very very young, someone to keep an eye on as her career hopefully develops (only 19, doesn't seem to have had full operatic training and I'm unaware of her actually singing in an opera; seems to specialize in crossover and maybe will just stay there, but if trained, she would have the potential to be a true opera singer, given a good voice and good stage presence):

    Yes, she is very surprising for someone so young. Started at age 12. Usually as we know this kind of child prodigy doesn't really succeed. But she seems to be the real deal, with natural talent. She is also quite pretty. I hope she won't just stay in crossover. Can someone please tell this young lady that she should become a full-blown opera singer?

    Of course, not perfect, but for her age she does a very good job with these Mozart arias:

    I did say "she is also quite pretty." But it's not all. She sings and acts well.

    That she does! I also hope she decides to pursue a career in opera.

    When I saw the title, I thought at first it might be Sirkka Lampimäki.
