My performance yesterday was exactly what it should have been, the culmination and climax of many years of professional experience.
I think it was Maria Callas who said "We should be our own critics, having the integrity to admit ones decline, failures, and/or excellence." In my youth I could not have given this kind of knowing and skillful performance. It is with a healthy ego that I can say that in the autumn of my career I demonstrated vocal health, artistry, beauty and ease of tone. Judging from the spirit of the performance, my audience felt the same way.
