Interview from our Viva Verdi! bicentennial broadcast with Dolora Zajick. Since her Met debut in 1988, Ms. Zajick has sung over 150 performances of four Verdi roles: Amneris; Azucena; Eboli; and Ulrica. What is more remarkable is that, now in her 60's she still manages to sing them with the same vocal health and authority as when she first started singing. In this exclusive interview, Zajick speaks about technique and nurturing the next generation of dramatic voices. This interview was conducted by Stepan Atamian via phone on September 27, 2013.
