Lebanon’s Christine Brewer is respected for her voice, admired for her personality

By Sarah Bryan Miller [St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 21 January 2007]
Soprano Christine Brewer has a voice made for the repertoire of Strauss and
Wagner. She’s an international star in the many-are-called-but-few-are-chosen
world of grand opera. In a field noted for justifiable hypochondria, she is
startlingly unfussy about chills, germs and other possible threats to her vocal
health. She’s down-to-earth and downright funny. And when she’s at home, she
lives a most un-divaish life.
