"The petite soprano's scorched-earth displays of temperament are the stuff of legend, and Monday night her capable if prosaic pianist Howard Watkins was visited with Battle's unique brand of shock and awe."

"The soprano repeatedly cued him with impatient arm waves, once stamping her foot and hitting the piano lid in frustration. After they exited the stage at intermission, with Battle vehemently remonstrating with the rattled pianist, one half-expected to see Watkins return for the second half with his head bandaged."

I am sorry for her. This isn't artistic temperament, it's self-destruction.
