Another bout of illness in the Giovanni cast; this time a bit less severe vocally, but still traumatic in its own way. It’s so hard to spend weeks and months refining something and then have your “instrument” rebel. The sobering thing is that it’s unavoidable. Most singers are surprisingly hardy people. But there’s no way to get through a decades-long career without having to sing while “indisposed.” Very very tough to do it at the beginning of a career, but it’s a skill. And the only way to learn it is on the job.
