Notable Quotable: Katerina Souvorova on why we need opera

"Why do people need opera? To feel that they are people, human. Opera, like no other art form, 'talks, sings' to people using a language of noble emotions, without triviality, and teaches us important lessons without moralizing. The beauty of the music is intensified by acting, and the text touches the soul. I think this is very important, especially now, when we don’t have time left to reflect on everyday living." -- Katerina Souvorova
