Reader, I tried. Somewhere within the singer regularly dubbed Americaís favourite mezzo there had to be a lurking insecurity ñ or at least a lurking indiscretion. But Susan Graham, the striking six-footer from Texas, takes a different approach to the strains of life on the operatic circuit. They all get channelled into her immaculate performances and rich, supple voice; itís her characters that take the strain.
