Norina, a modern heroine

Interview with Nadine Sierra — By Anna Schauder

Via, caro sposino, non farmi il tiranno sings a sometimes cheerful and sometimes irritated Norina, in order to get rid of her suffocating husband. Indifferent to hearsay, this resolute woman with a strong and fiery character does not intend to be told how to behave. A role that is almost feminist and quite rare in opera, and which Nadine Sierra embodies with delight. The American soprano, a “vocal technique geek”, puts all her performing talents at the service of Damiano Michieletto's demanding production.
