Kim Witman at the Wolf Trap Opera Blog has once again posted a list of unexpurgated audition comments from the WTO audition tour, all anonymous. It's worth a read of the full list, to get an idea of the honest reactions of someone on the other side of the table in the audition room.
What is also important to realize is that there is no shortage of honest criticism for a singer in a university program. However, when a singer leaves university for the profession, an entirely honest opinion in the audition room is very rare indeed. Thanks once again to Kim for posting the 2008 list.
