Dame Kiri Te Kanawa to Retire

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa will be making her last performance in a cameo role in La Fille du Regiment at London’s Royal Opera House. The singer, who turned 70 on March 6, spoke with British TV network ITV  about her recent decision saying that, “there’s relief that the pressure is off. It’s a very, very high energy job and a lot is expected of you – you’re really expected to do … more than you can cope with sometimes.”
