with a sound/appropriate voice


Explanation:
In der Oper ist es nicht nur wichtig, daß eine Stimme weit trägt (sound), sondern auch, dass sie der Rolle entsprechend (appropriate) ausgelegt ist. Wenn Brunhilde zum Beispiel von einem kolorierten Sopran gesungen wird, wirkt daß bei aller Lautstärke nicht so wie wenn eine etwas maskulinere Tonlage (z.B. Alt) diese Rolle vorträgt.
