    It has to be the right moment for the voice, explains Anna: http://intermezzo.typepad.com/intermezzo/

      But I guess she planned to sing Lescaut and Macbeth a long time ago as well…presumably at about the same time she signed for Faust…

      So was that a hedging of bets: I’ll schedule all three, and if my voice stays light I’ll do Faust and cancel the other two; if my voice becomes heavier i’ll do the other way around!

      More plausibly is that she simply underestimated the amount of work needed for all three.
