My favorite opera queen has just sent me, by post from abroad, "Notes on the interpretation of Donizetti's Queens" by Ms. Leyla Gencer, translated (from Italian? Turkish? Polish?) by one Stephen Hastings. It seems to be a talk she delivered at the Donizetti Society. I'm making myself not read it just quite yet. She is for now Schrodinger's Spinto: maybe insightful, maybe inarticulate. We'll see.
