The Saturday morning sunrise from my New York hotel room was some consolation for having to be up at 6am to catch the train to Philadelphia.
My personal tally at the end of this, National Opera Week 2009:
- 4 operas (Lohengrin, Esther, Stradella, & The House of the Dead)
- 188 auditions
- 393 arias
- 17 monologues
- 9 interviews
- 7.5 hours of research
Still working on the Aria Frequency List for this tour; look for it by midweek.
Philadelphia today, and Vienna VA for the next 3 days. Much sleep is needed, but the finish line is in sight!
