A little excursion

Ariodante number 2 went quite well last night, minus some drama I had about forgetting my sword in my dressing room. It was minimal drama, though, as the assistant director managed to sneak the sword to me on stage with plenty of time before I needed it, so no one noticed. I really enjoyed myself last night, actually. I really tried to maximize my soft singing - more so than I ever have before on an operatic stage - and it really paid off. The audience really responded, which was a good sign to me that my soft singing could carry over the pit. It was an exciting feeling to be able to play with dynamics so much.

I'm off to Paris today for an audition...I'm back in Frankfurt tomorrow evening. I get to spend a lot of time on the train today, which should be relaxing. I am hoping to finish my book, Seeing, by Jose Saramago. Any good vibes for tomorrow will be appreciated...

love the post-a-day! the pictures are beautiful, too. Thank you for sharing them! I'd love to hear what you think about the Saramago. I haven't read that one, but Blindness is one of my top 10 of all time.

Blindness is also one of my favorites - Seeing is the sequel. Thanks for the encouragement!
