Multi-purpose post activate!
Purpose 1: I obviously sang this on the recital. It's an aria from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Grand Duke. You know, the one nobody has heard of unless you're a hardcore G&S fan like myself. That being said, I simply could not do a recital without singing something G&S so I decided to go with the most obscure, yet very lovely aria I could find!
Purpose 2: Two weeks ago I auditioned for a show with Opera Naples. Ruddigore by Gilbert and Sullivan. I sang this song for the audition only to find out after the fact that it is our director's favorite G&S song! I sang my heart out in that audition and I can now officially announce that I will be playing Rose Maybud (aka the soprano)! The performances will be on the last weekend of June and all the information is up on my "schedule" page for your convenience.
The first time I saw this show I knew I had to be in it one day and I am so excited and honored to be a part of this production and I hope to see lots of smiling faces in the audience!
I actually have a couple more new summer engagements as well! Keep a look out for another update with info on those soon! And for now, please enjoy this song!
