Yma Sumac Quotes
Well, in the 50's I went to Italy and a very important critic said to me, "Madame Sumac, with all due respect, here in Italy we have the greatest singers in the world. So do not expect the same kind of reviews you received everywhere else in the world." I raised one eyebrow, but said nothing. That night, I did 'The Magical Flute' and my voice was the flute! I got a standing ovation for over 20 minutes! Afterwards the critic did not come to my dressing room to visit...he left!
I exercise my voice and of course my body too. I do not want to lose my abilities! I spend time with trusted friends. I like to see the television too. Have you seen that Mr. Springer show? My God! The people fighting and the things they say! I watch that when I want a break from educational TV!
