Opera world splits along the cleavage line

The latest front in the opera wars was opened yesterday when Marina Laslo, a Russian singer whose rendition of Ave Maria has made her one of Classic FM’s most played artists, objected to a record company executive’s suggestion that she needed to “sex up” her image.

Laslo, 24, said: “I was raised to conduct myself like a lady and have no interest in compromising those standards to achieve a short-cut to fame. The market is full of blonde classical artists with their cleavages on show.”

So tired of having this liberal demeaning sexed up image of women shoved everywhere for consumption and as the ideal model for “attractiveness.”
