RIP Joan Rivers

Never be afraid to laugh at yourself, after all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.

Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers gave the world enough humor to fill a second Library of Congress.

She was born in 1933, between the two World Wars, in an America struggling with the aftermath of the Great Depression. She was born in the age of black and white, but died in the age of color. She was born into a world that needed humor to face tragedy.

We still live in that world today, and we still need humor as much as ever.

"I think anyone who’s perfectly happy isn’t particularly funny."

Opera singers chatting about opera. Soprano Tamara Wilson interviews reigning Cardiff Singer of the World, Mezzo Jamie Barton.

Other parts of the interview:

Part Ib

Part II- Silly Questions

Part IIIa- Audience Questions

Part IIIb- Doctor Who

Part IV- Glyndebourne and Critics

Part IVb- Fat Shaming in the Opera World

It’s hard for me to coherently describe just how awesome I think Jamie Barton is.
