H E -- A u g u , t 7 , 1972 Young People By Vivian Brown AP Newsfsatures Writer Young people are getting breaks sooner in opera because it is now possible to be thrown right into a big role rather than having to ptay lesser roles during a long period of apprenticeship, says lovely Marisa Galvany of Fair Lawn, N.J., an American girl who made a singing career "without going to Europe." She is with the New York City Opera. Opera is still an expensive business for performers and it still requires great discipline which helps tame the ego, but discouragement doesn't set in from lack of breaks if you have talent, says Marisa, now in her early 30s. "My debut came exactly that way. I was worked right into a role playing Queen Elizabeth. In addition to getting a chance to be heard, the imperiousness of the role provided me with an opportunity to get some of my arrogance out of my system." The well-known soprano's voice has been described variously "as a dramatic coloratura rising to luscious low register. . .a voice, chesty at its bottom, warm and velvety. . .a soaring voice. She has been touring with Sol Hurok for five years. "The disciplines are enormous," she says. "I miss Opera Breaks Simday Deadlines family dinners, and the household must revolve around my interests. Sally, my 11-year- old, often is deprived of those Sunday mother-daughter outings, and she often cannot invite children to the house if they have colds to which I can't expose myself. Then, too, my husband must be cooperative about meals, and I must always be aware of my figure as the public doesn't really want to see big fat women playing romantic roles. . . ." "I cannot get too thin, though, because you must have some meat as support for your breath. I keep my weight at 135, otherwise I look ill." She is 5 ft 7 in. tall. "The breaks you get in opera depend an the repertoire,' Miss Galvany says. "Right now sopranos are 'in.' First class bassos are hard to find and tenors are very busy," she says. This singer is preparing to film Macbeth for Canadian television and recently debuted with the Seattle Opera. But if it were not for the dedication, the expense of an operatic career might do a singer in, she observes. "A singer looking attractively dressed and cpiffed is an expensive production. In addition to the cost of gowns, hair dressers, lessons, records, music, tapes, phone bills, management commissions, pictures, travel accommodations for myself and accompanist, bridge tolls from my home and parking fees for the car when I'm taking lessons. I must buy tickets for the friends 1 invite to hear me perform. At the end I may have made $3.40. But you must present an image. You'd be surprised how many people sit out front ready to devour you if you don't measure up." Marisa studied piano and sang in grade school in NPW Jersey who^e her father was a cattle dealer. As a teen-ager, she became immersed in a training program of voice, piano, acting and body movement. Later she was to become a secretary to a doctor who recommended a good voice teacher, and that was the beginning of her career.
