Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has told the BBC she won't sing in public again.
The beloved New Zealand opera singer hasn't taken to the stage in more than a year, and in an interview with the BBC, said she wouldn't ever again.
"I don't want to hear my voice," said the 73-year-old soprano.
"It is in the past. When I'm teaching young singers and hearing beautiful young fresh voices, I don't want to put my voice next to theirs."
She said she would focus on training the next generation through her foundation.
Her final concert was near Melbourne last October.
