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!
