Royal Opera House's Pappano criticises young singers

Antonio Pappano, music director of the Royal Opera House in London, has criticised the "current generation" of singers, saying they lack commitment.

"They are either weaker in their bodies or don't care," he said, after a number of performers resigned from their roles in the past 12 months.

Speaking at a preview of the 2013/2014 season, he said singers need to plan "greater periods of rest".
