People of Note - Sarita Stern

--:--
Rodney Trudgeon’s guest on People of Note this week is a very brave and very passionate opera singer. Sarita Stern was the victim of a tragic incident in 1974 when an intruder threw acid into her face just a few days before she was due to make her debut as Carmen. Gradually she regained some sight in one of her eyes and went on to sing and to becoming a much sort after singing teacher. Many of her students are now singing internationally and, at 91, her passionate search for beautiful sound along with her hunger for spiritual fulfilment is a story of triumph over setbacks. All this is now published in her memoir called The Inner Voice of Sound.
