...in the form of MORE PICTURES! And a concert review! Aren't you so excited? Someone else sent these new pictures to us, so I'm posting them here for your viewing pleasure. Or not. I guess I am just feeling a little bit self-conscious about posting so much of this, that's all. It feels way too narcissistic for my comfort.
But I'm over it now. It is my blog, after all, and this is what I have lived and breathed the last several weeks.
So, first the review. This was done by a self-proclaimed "opera rookie" and is in the University's newspaper/news website. Here is a link if you are so inclined to read it. It is a somewhat humorous review, not dry and boring at all, although not very well edited. (Oh, and it's the second article down. Can't figure out how to link just the one article, sorry.)
Now for the pictures.
This is from the Verdi...the Ave Maria part at the end.
Joel talking to the audience. Probably assuring them that he would not be killing me upon arriving at home (I sang both Desdemona and Carmen, women who were both murdered by their jealous lovers/husbands), or telling the story of how he was beaten up by gypsies in Romania.
Watching me come out for Habanera.
More Habanera. "If I love you, beware of me!"
I promise this is the last of it.
And now back to regularly scheduled blogging.
