The Fearless Soprano
“A doorway into the artist’s heart, full of celebration and drive!”—R.Lorber Dance Magazine
In this vibrant collection of poems, Karen Austen recreates the power and excitement, pain and beauty of the performer’s art. Come back stage for an intimate glimpse of the passion in a dancer’s will, the exuberant, exacting soul of a singer—or the magic of an aria and the triumph of a soaring leap! These poems will carry the reader from the sweat of rehearsal through to the ecstasy of performance—all with an eye to the complexity of private and public personae in the act of self-expression. Savor the nuance of choreography and score from an insider’s point of view, perhaps reminiscent of your own....
For anyone who loves music or dance, these poems are both an inspiration and pleasure!
