Danielle de Niese as Cleopatra by Giulio Cesare

Q: I've always heard that to be a good singer you have to have a large body and big vocal chords. Is that really true? (Bernie Deena)

A: "Size doesn't matter. I'm not a size person and I'm not here because of my size or because of lack of my size. We all have voices and we all want to communicate and convey something and share with the world and so there's room for all different kinds of singers and so I, I'm really not into, kind of, one being judged by their size." (Danielle de Niese, Soprano)
