To put it bluntly, this is the busiest time of the year. And I'm loving it. Last week I played in the orchestra for Fern Hill School's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with an awesome and talented group of kids and professional musicians. Tomorrow I'm back with Tapestry New Opera for their workshop production of The Enslavement and Liberation of Oksana G, an opera in Ukranian, Russian, and English about human trafficking in Europe.
At the same time, Wendy has just finished a double run of Nixon in China and Magic Flute with the Canadian Opera Company (I had a great time playing for a few of the Nixon rehearsals), and now is on her way to New York City for the COC's remount of the Robert LePage's The Nightingale and Other Short Fables at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. After that, she travels to Ottawa for Opera Lyra's production of Lucia di Lammermoor (Alisa) and then on to Hamilton for Opera Hamilton's Cav/Pal (Mamma Lucia).
Somewhere in the next few weeks I intend to do some blogging, and keep on the lookout for a special guest post in the coming days...
