Lynx Project: On the Road With Art Song (Schmopera: Jenna Simeonov)

“When I’ve asked singers in the past about the difference between singing in an opera and singing a recital, the most common answer I get is that recitals are terrifying.

Of course, it has to do with having no “stage aids” like sets, costumes, far distances, etc. In recital, it’s just a singer and his or her voice. It has a lot to do with the repertoire, too. “
