Remember our tree?
It survived the winter! Wa-Hoo!
Things are good for us. We had a nice weekend, and it should be a good, if busy week. Today things really start to go crazy at the opera company. Nearly 85% of the company is here (everyone but the orchestra, and those singers who are only involved in the operas*), and rehearsals have already started. I always have mixed feelings about this day. On the one hand, it's hectic and crazy and noisy, and there are people running around all the time, who have needs and demands and requests. On the other hand, it's just really exciting, and (as much as I hate to admit it), there's a part of me that kind of likes the drama.
So, there you have it.
*We generally do two musicals and two operas in rep every summer. Because the musicals require a bit more rehearsal than the operas, those people who only participate in the operas (about 5-6 people total) arrive a week or so after the rest of the company.
