|Italian term or phrase: modula, frena e tramuta|
|An article about "Jesus Christ Superstar" enacted in Italian! Not sure how to translate the above phrase in this context... Any ideas much appreciated!|
"Il Jesus di Simone Sibillano ha notevoli doti di voce, che modula, frena e tramuta, ma manca di splendore interiore, un po' immobile nel gioco teatral-facciale."
|modulation, restraint and versatility|
remarkably gifted in his singing, with good modulation, restraint and versatility...
I would change these verbs into nouns: it is true that we modulate our voice, but restraint and versatility work better this way. I just think this sounds more English. I sing in an operatic society, showing neither restraint nor versatility, but this is what I would say.
