Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Two nice bits of press today, in the Herald and the Courier News. The Herald also had this article earlier in the week.

Will have to remember to thank John for the comment about the chorus. Last year we had similar praise from the guest conductor who handled the night Francesco had a prior commitment, and who also happens to be a former chorus master from the Lyric. Quality and professionalism in a chorus means, to some extent, that you shouldn't notice. (Not always easy to take!) So it's nice to have them recognized by people who know their stuff.

One thing I love about opera that NEVER happens in other theatre: We get tonight off! *happy sigh* There's something to be said for a discipline with a tradition of recognizing that the body needs a break to perform its best...
