- How you feel in your new role?

- Well, some inner peace has come, understanding and singing became easier. The sound is fuller. Two months after her birth, I sang Adina in Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'Amore." Although, I confess, very worried and even wanted to cancel the show. But my wonderful singing teacher Nelly Miricioiu convinced that I am ready. Now I am fully fall into my old rhythm and preparing for the new parties. In March, I will go to Paris for two months, I will sing the opera premiere of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Snow Maiden" by Dmitry Chernyakov at Opéra Bastille. I have found a cozy apartment in Paris for us (opera artists are not provided with housing). Daughter travels everywhere with me. She also fulfills her role - to grow up and delight me".
