Wagner’s Valentine

Well, the very unexpected still happens: A substitute soloist proves better than the star.

From yours truly’ perch, Jennifer Wilson’s singing gives new and badly needed energy and emotion to a Wagner opera’s cast members and orchestra.

The passion is real and her sound is gloriously effortless. The audience understands what the big deal is with Wagner. It’s a night when everyone’s asking, Who is she?

Ms. Wilson’s spent more than 20 years paying dues all over the world, and nobody was talking about how she looked – just her glorious, exciting voice!

It’s a genuine, well-trained big voice, unlike other sopranos-who-shall-be-nameless. This is her rep and you could hear it ringing loud and clear throughout the hall.

Put the regular soprano to shame.  😉

Yep.  There are still exciting nights at the opera.

Here’s an excellent NY Times article about large voices, mentioning Wilson.
