|The gorgeous set of Amarillo Opera's La Perichole|
You see, I attended a picnic on the stage and was treated to some sneak peeks of the upcoming performance.
I enjoy the fact this opera will be sung in my native tongue
|He is singing about women being goddesses. Who am I to disagree??|
pies....that's something I understand. Remember these?
|Ever seen such gorgeous meringue?|
Another thing about this show that excites me....some lucky locals are in the production. Gives me some hometown faces to bravo about.
|This is Michael and he is over the moon about being in the opera, even though he plays the role of a prisoner. I'm happy for him and can't wait to spot him onstage.|
If you feel like coming....don't be shy! Call AMARILLO OPERA for tickets to the show Saturday, March 31 or Sunday, April 1. There won't be a quiz about opera terms or etiquette or anything like that.
Wait, wait.....seems I spoke too soon about the quiz.
What on earth are you doing, Roxy-Doxy?!
**Doxy breathless in a run-on sentence**I auditioned for the part of Perichole, but David O'Dell says I might be better cast as Madame Butterfly next season...do you realize it's pronounced pear-uh-kole NOT pear-uh-CHOLE?...do you know the term opera buffa refers to all the hot, buffed-up men in the cast?...do you understand the term contralto refers to......
No opera quizzes. Just fun. Promise.
Buffed-up opera love to all.
