“When you reach certain level you cannot go down”, claims Spanish mezzosoprano Teresa Berganza

Spanish mezzosoprano Teresa Berganza explained in Zaragoza why she left the stages after 58 years of career: “When you reach certain level you cannot go down” and “the public you make love with when you sing and to which you give love, cannot be deceived”, she said.

On Tuesday 15th April, Teresa Berganza (Madrid, 1933) went to stage again, but not for singing but to give a talk within the Lyric Meetings of the Opera Association from Aragón. .

In that meeting, the mezzosoprano emphasized that “everything has its moment”, and that that is why “one has to be able to say stop”.

In that meeting, moreover, she denounced with energy that Spanish culture is in decline.

“All the candidates for elections should pass a music exam, and we should vote for that who passes it. That would show, she has said, that he is well prepared and that he is going to take care of culture”.
