Can opera singers act?





Ask RogerThey sure can! Many are the singers you’ll find on major stages whose acting is so detailed and believable that you could put them onstage in straight theater with no sacrifice in believability. I’m not saying this is invariably the case, but the level of sophistication — of stage savvy — in singers’ acting has really progressed phenomenally over the past two or three decades. Young singers are trained more extensively in their acting than years ago, which has helped greatly.
