    poor woman; on top of her health issues now the whole world knows. Suppose things work out, imagine seeing her on stage and thinking back to all this... I can't say I've ever wondered what happens if a singer lets one rip whilst singing but now I will.

    Certainly a disturbing level of detail in that article. Not *really* necessary to know all that.

    On the bright side, she can now sing the Papageno/Papagena duet on her own.

    How can you say such thing, many people will benefit from reading this, not to mention the singer herself who will surely feel more comfortable knowing that so many people have read about her problem and send her their supportive thoughts. The Independent is pride of British press.

    I heard that she produces a loud and deadly legato phrase. But her rubato clears the hall.

    Actually, the surgically induced link between her colon and her ****** is a serious medical problem. Whoever botched that operation committed major malpractice.

    You are lucky I'm done with my morning coffee, or you'd owe me a keyboard.

    I don't think I'm going to think about legato and rubato the same way again.
