There are so many, but I'd have to name Marcel Proust for his dedication to a single vision, Thomas Bernhard for his rage, Scott Fitzgerald for his beautiful architecture, and John Ruskin for a million reasons. I've also been influenced by the folk tradition, fairy tales from many different cultures. Recently the Japanese author Kawabata has been a big influence.

GRACE’S TOP FIVE OPERA MOMENTS
'Che farò senza Euridice' from Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice – the perfection of despair, the utterance of the unutterable, the heartbroken heart of darkness.
Isolde's Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde – right over the top and up into the multi-coloured eternal Wagnerian sky.
Tatiana's letter aria from Eugene Onegin – O foolish youth! Painfully beautiful, shimmering in the unending twilight of a Russian summer.
“Don Giovanni gets dragged down to hell – and doesn't he deserve it! Delicious goose bumps, thrills and chills.
The Invisible City of Kitezh appears – and you thought it was only a legend, wasn't even real, and suddenly there it is, faintly heard at first, a peal of bells, a bubble of air, a glorious golden vision.
