In a conversation with Natalie Dessay:

Opera singers are famous for being divas. Are you one?

No, because I have no ego. I’m not that kind of person, but I have artistic demands. For example, I want my colleagues to be able to act. It’s not always possible, but I ask that I want good directors, good conductors, good orchestras.

Hmm. “I have no ego.”

I bet she also says she is the most humble person in the world.

Okay, okay, I’m kidding! But it just made me laugh. Laughing is good, yes?

I did see an interview on Charlie Rose with Dessay. I enjoyed it immensely. I do think she is a fairly genuine person. Really.
