In this photo taken Oct. 11, 2010, Soprano Edita Gruberova speaks during an interview with The Associated Press in Vienna, Austria. At the dizzying heights of her stellar operatic career, Gruberova has unexpectedly chosen to stoop and return to the role of the fallen woman who helped make her fame. Gruberova is not portraying just any wayward female. By rediscovering Violetta Valery of Verdi's "La Traviata" (The Fallen Woman) at age 62, the Queen of Coloratura is in some ways retracing her first steps on the stairway to stardom.
