Go see a movie or something

On the topic currently occupying Sieglinde's deepest thoughts, Diva Renee Fleming sounds off:

"There's no question that it's becoming more and more important, the visual over the musical. I think that's dangerous. I don't want the audience to forget what great singing is and be too focused on how people look. That does concern me. I don't think that's a reactionary statement, because I think in great singing and great music are the real rewards. Because otherwise, go to the theatre, go see a movie–you know what I mean?"
