The waiting has ended.
For those away from Laurier who still want to know this, and because I'm excited to tell you, we are doing the following scenes for Opera Excerpts:
The "Cours la reine" scene from Manon Act III, scene i. with Krysta (my fellow Op. Dip.) playing Manon! I am understudying this role.
Act I, scene i from La Traviata including the Brindisi or drinking song (I bet you'd all know it if you heard it...even if you don't know classical music well) and I'll be playing Violetta Valery!! Very exciting! My roomie GC (short for Giancarlo) is playing Alfredo, my lover.
Trio Act II from Ariadne auf Naxos and the Quintet Act II with Krysta and I double cast as Ariadne.
And Frankie and Johnnie, a one act opera. This one is new to me...I don't know much about it!
VERY EXCITING! These excerpts are going to be pretty fierce! I'll keep you posted on dates.
Even though I have to start packing my clothes (moving tomorrow), I'm still going to start learning and watch the DVD. Man, I love opera.
Well, hopefully the move goes smoothly. I'm so excited to be back in Waterloo!
