It's what Californians wear when they go skiing. Sometimes.

Sometimes they don't wear anything but boots.

Well, we generally won't get in the water when it's cold enough to need a coat, but you Californians have different ideas about water skiing than we do in the midwest.

I even hear tell they ski on frozen water out there!

The San Diego Opera opened their production of Don Carlo last Saturday night. All in all, it's a great show! All of the principals are phenomenal, particulary our Fillipo, played by Ferruccio Furlanetto(yes, I'm raving about a BASS!). His performance is probably the finest combination of good singing and acting I've ever seen. The San Diego Union-Tribune said the opera should be retitled King Phillip due to his performance. And it is grand opera on a grand scale. In one scene, there are approximately 200 people on stage.

I have a total of 3 costumes, and I take a step down the social ladder with every change:

First, I'm a courtier:

Here I am with a fellow courtier:

Then, I'm a peasant:
<img src="http://www.operatenor.100megs24.com/peasant.jpg" alt=" - " />

And finally, rabble(no comments, Haggis!):

The Great Carouser joined this production as a supernumerary cardinal:

This is one of the "super" ladies in waiting to Elisabetta:

This is what some of the guys do for fun between scenes:

You make a very fine courtier/peasant/rabbleman. GC makes a wonderful cardinal. (How are those oversleeves constructed? Why isn't he posing with at least one arm stretched out so I can see how the oversleeve of the robe is constructed!!) I find myself yearning to become a second assistant flunky to the wardrobe mistress. Never mind all that singing and acting bushwah, I want to fondle the fabrics. ;)

Selma, all one needs to know about my costume is that somewhere in the 'heartland' there's a small movie theater that's missing a curtain! :)

OT, congrats on a fabulous Don Carlo!

Live music for me lately includes:

* Mahler Second Symphony with the NSO, Cathedral Chorus, at the Kennedy Center with Kaplan conducting (fabulous, with the chorus and conducting particularly splendid)

* Salome at the Met (Mattila was amazing; I was fine until the very end, and then burst into tears as the audience burst into applause. Exceptionally excellent performance all the way around.)

* Sweeney Todd at the NYCO (I love this work, whether musical, supermusical, musical drama, or opera. Hadn't seen it since the 80s, then with Cariou and Lansbury; this performance was very fulfilling even with some cuts in it. The only thing I really noticed missing was the tooth-pulling scene, but to say I missed it [as in regretted its absence] would be too strong.)

After Salome and Sweeney Todd, I'm officially broke, but man, what a way to go! :-)

Saw this year's touring production of Riverdance. It didn't stink. Excellent musicians and Michael Flatley had nothing on the featured male performer.

Got cast in "Fiddler" as the oldest sister---dinner theatre. I'm trying to keep a good attitude, but afraid the production will be pretty amateur.

Actually, that's the role I wanted. I think it's the best number in the whole show, and the most appropriate for shameless hams who can really only carry a tune. Oh well. Fruma Sarah.

Listening to live music as I type! It's 'Heritage" day at our school, and there are two acoustic guitarists from the Folk Center outside my office. I can't think of a better way to do end-of-year paperwork.

11 days to La Traviata at the SDO.
I should start getting SDO e-press releases on this next week. I am definitely looking forward to it. Never sat thru an opera with a tenor humming along (I can pray for humming, and not singing, yes?) in my ear.

The next day we subject the innocent people of Poway/ Scripps Ranch to a performance of the San Diego Chorale Arts Ensemble, doing madrigals etc and a requiem.
