Finding Just the Right Words

by Suzanne Calvin

Check out this very interesting article from “The New York Times” Anthony Tommasini about the delicate and demanding art of translating an opera libretto from its original language into English. I have enormous respect for anyone who can grasp the nuances, the rhythms and the feelings and recreate them in another language altogether -- while keeping the words perfectly married to the music. It’s quite a gift. Enjoy!
