Christiane Karg, the young Bavarian lyric operatic soprano, was Opernwelt Magazine's 2009 Young Performer of the Year and 2010 ECHO Klassik's Young Artist of the Year. I first encountered her as Melia on the M22 DVD of Mozart's Apollo et Hyacinthus/Die Schuldigkeit der Ersten Gebotes and was mightily impressed with the then little-known singer's performance. Alas, like most of the singers I really admire, she sings mostly in Europe, so I still haven't had the pleasure of experiencing her in person yet. From the distance, though, she is one really nice gal!
Now, how in the world does she keep in such a good figure growing up around cakes and scones?
