A FAMOUS OPERA SINGER: LINET SAUL How and when did you decide to be an opera singer? I decided to be an opera singer after I finished high school. At the beginning I could not decide between becoming an English teacher or an opera singer. So I studied both in the same year and at the end of that year, I knew I wanted to be an opera singer. Who effected you to be an opera singer? I have amateur musicians in my family that effected me. But my boyfriend at that time, who is my husband now had the biggest effect on me to take this decision. As a child what were your musical activities? I started singing in children's choir since I was 7 years old, and also I was always singing in the school orchestra. What kind of education did you take to become an opera singer? To become an opera singer, you should study voice in the conservatory for 5 years. You have to take these classes: Voice, harmony, sight reading, music history, opera history, dance, stage, acting, make-up, piano, languages (Italian, French, German), diction and chorus.

In these years you sing some concert and you get used to the stage. Do you think an opera singer should speak foreign languages? An opera singer must certainly know as many languages as she can. Because, operas are usually in Italian, German, French or Spanish. There are operas in Russian too. So if you know these languages and you understand what you are singing about, it helps you on you acting, and also this way you can express yourself better.

What are the important things that an opera singer should pay attention? An opera singer must take very good care of herself, like a sportsman. She must eat healthy food, and she must do sports. Smoking or too much alcohol is forbidden. She must not drink very cold or very hot beverages. She should not eat dinner very late and go to sleep immediately which is not good for the stomach and not good for the vocal chords. She must discipline herself to live a healthy life. Can you describe your feelings when you are at stage? Being on stage is a wonderful feeling. Especially when you can express yourself as you want to and you get a lot of applause at the end of your performance, there is not a better or more satisfying feeling in the world. Do you recommend young people to become opera singers? I certainly recommend "opera singing" career to everybody. For me music is the highest art of all the arts.
