The classical music world, is filled with strong female characters. It’s something that is almost taken for granted. Strong women are what opera is all about.
Zita is such a woman. She is independant and in charge of her own career. She knows what she wants to do, and do it artistically. Zita is determined to take her strength together with her femininity, and pave the way forward towards a route of success
