30 day opera challenge

Day 12 - Your favourite female operatic singer - JOYCE YAY

At the root of it, I love Joyce because she is a superb artist. You only have to listen to her talk about how to approach learning a role to understand that she totally gets it, and as a result, she’s always an exciting presence on stage. As if that wasn’t enough, she is also an angel sent from heaven to bless us with her fabulous sartorial choices and stunning personality.
