    Coming soon - Exclusive interview with Thomas Hampson

    I spent today 56 minutes interviewing Mr. Thomas Hampson for Opera Lively. His answers are quite interesting, and he demonstrates keen intelligence and profound knowledge of the art form.

    In the next few days I'll be transcribing the material and submitting a draft for his appreciation and revision, then we'll have it published on the Home page. It may take a few days, but it is coming.

    The Thomas Hampson inteview: Transcription is ready and has been sent to him. I have no idea of the timeline for him to send it back with corrections. Meanwhile, we have a teaser already on the home page:

    Fantastic. Once again, many congratulations to Almaviva.

    I read this today at work (in my lunch hour ) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Interesting and insightful questions which brought forth some fascinating answers.


    (there are a few typos - I'd be happy to proof read any future interviews)

    That would be a bit complicated. To read it at work I put it in a Word document, so I'll send the corrected version to you as an email attachment.

    got it. Oh wow, I don't know how so many typos slipped by. Probably because I finished typing this at 3 AM. Thanks for the corrections. Will correct everything later tonight, I'm going to a ballet now.

    I may have pushed the yellow a bit much in the first pic and don't like the way the forum software cropped the pic of Mr. Beczala and his wife (click the image to see the proper framing) but those are nitpicks of my own work; the interview is fantastic and just as enjoyable to read as it was to participate in. Looking forward to interviewing Mr. Beczala again next year, should we find ourselves in New York in Jan / Feb when he is singing in Rigoletto.

    I think I can fix the framing, just by decreasing the size of the picture and reposting.

    Yep, fixed the problem with the wife's picture, and also cropped the head shot to eliminate the unfocused hand. Better now.

    Two typos I see: Moniu(s missing)zko and The(y missing) ask me to.

    I like the Wieslaw Ochman [Editor’s note: Polish tenor] part but I think similiar thing is missing in title of 2nd part of interview - should be WORKING WITH ANNA NETREBKO [EDITOR'S NOTE: RUSSIAN SOPRANO].

    Nice interview all in all, I liked very much what he said about certain things and now I'm very grateful for opportunity to contribute to the whole thing.

    OK, I'll take out Polish Tenor, and oops, I forgot to credit you with authoring questions, and will correct it too.

    Moniuszko has been corrected but I can't find the other typo in They ask me to, what paragraph and line?
