BTW - the Best Deli in the world is only a few blocks away... Katz's Delicatessan..
Indeed,,, "....I'll have what SHE's having.."
The performance yesterday for the Magic Flute went VERY WELL!
The theatre was small but packed!
Sets could have been a bit better, costumes were excellent!
They had 3 sets of performers for each part. So I cannot name the individuals as they insert for the program was for Saturdays performance, not Sunday.... ugh..
Tamino did a fine job. But he seemed nervous at times and would rush through some arias.
Papgeno did a fabulous job as the half-human bird catcher...
He was enthusiatic and exciting.
The Queen of the Night was excellent. Her singing at times was a little weak but when it came time for the Revenge Aria... She nailed ALL those High Notes
IMHO - Pamina (Queen of the Night's Daughter) was by far the best of the cast! Her stage presence, command, and voice was truly a pleasure to watch.
Orchestra was condensed and received a standing ovation from the audience after the performers took their bows.
It was a fun experience....
I went to Katz;s Deli afterwards only to be disappointed that they had rented the establishment out for a private 50th party
and no one was allowed in....
I'll have to make a trip to the city just to get my pastrami!
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
