I love my job.
It was so great to be back, seeing even more of my friends and getting right back to our fun times in rehearsal. The orchestra was wonderful, of course, and KW and I regularly turned to each other to marvel at Mozart’s genius. There are some really incredible passages in this opera, and some gorgeous singing in this production. Being back was motivating and inspiring, and I've had a great day working on Figaro texts and getting my aria book into shape.
And when I got home yesterday? Good news from the management: the Met has added two more assignments! They are both small, basically one-liners, and one is a cover (French Actress in War and Peace), but one is to sing (Crowned Child Apparition in Macbeth). Yay! And Macbeth is one of the productions being simulcast this year. So back to the movies we go!
Apartment hunting this afternoon, and a bit of bluegrass tonight. Back in the saddle…
