An article in the Daily Mail has come to my attention. It says that "opera gets sexy." I beg your pardon. Opera has always been sexy. There can be no question that our up-coming Partenope star, Danielle de Niese, is about as sexy as it gets. She already appeared in our sexiest list here.
She is currently appearing at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich in La Calisto (see above), one of the sexiest operas ever. Here is Danielle in Giulio Cesare. I also flagged her for a very sexy Poppea here.
Read the article for yourself. The subject matter appears to be that Danielle has compared her own on stage sexiness (artistic integrity) with Miley Cyrus (sexuality for the wrong reasons).
This doesn't sound like an argument we wish to become involved in, but we do very much prefer Danielle to Miley.
