I thought about including a video clip of the march, but instead decided to show you how we go about changing the set from one opera - "The Marriage of Figaro" to "Aida". (Speeded up, of course....)
It's always a bit sad when the seaon ends.... months of hard work, a little stress, unbelieveably gorgeous music...... and then, poof - it's over until May, when the Summer Season begins. But....we celebrate after the curtain comes down with the "infamous" Orchestra Vodka Party! (Da, da..) There are several Russian-born orchestra members and they bring every kind of delicious Russian food you can think of....plus......many, different flavours of "Vodka"!
It's a feast for sure....with many laughs and shared backstage stories...a wonderful way to say Adieu, Au Revoir, Tschuss, Ciao, Dasvidania!
And, I had to have a photo taken with one of the "Egyptian Priests" with his bare chest, gold lame hooped skirt and blue eyeshadow! (All designed by the amazing Zandra Rhodes. See my post from September.)
So, no more Opera posts from Moi until May....when we begin rehearsals for the complete "The Ring of the Niebelungen".....
