My dream would be an empty stage. Empty. One chair. And bodies. The bodies of the singers. But singers able to act and to play as actors. That is my dream. But where can we do that? Because of course when people go to opera they don’t want to have an empty stage. And particularly here in America. They want to have entertainment. They want to have big show. They want to have Broadway with opera.

-Natalie Dessay (Heard here.)
