Don’t Make Me Sing…

Tonight’s task: final editing of supertitles for the Antonia Act of The Tales of Hoffmann.

In short, the heroine of this act is a sensitive artiste, a former singer who has become so weak that she may not survive the physical exertion required to sing again. The villain is determined to make her sing, and she resists.

Of course, all I can think of while I translate Antonia’s words in my own weakened, exhausted, enervated state is Kristen Wiig.
