You may have heard soprano Susanna Phillips in the Metropolitan opera broadcast of Cosi Fan Tutte a month ago. She's a regular on that stage due to her charming stage presence and gorgeous voice. You can now catch her in person tonight and Friday at Davies Symphony Hall, where she'll perform Poulenc's Gloria and Fauré's Requiem with the SF Symphony and Chorus, under the baton of Charles Dutoit.

I called her to chat about these French religious pieces, as well as insensitive critics calling opera singers fat.
