The production as a whole was fantastic but my favorite moments were definitely Nireno and Cleopatra's dance numbers! Natalie Dessay is such an adorable little ball of fire and watching her perform these high energy dances while still singing crazy coloratura perfection was incredible!
New summer project: Learn this aria AND the choreography! (Also, hire two backup dancers. Any takers?)
Unfortunately there isn't a video of Ms. Dessay's performance online yet but there is one of Danielle De Niese in the same production!
Let's start a new trend!
