University Opera – Marriage of Figaro

March 5, 2006

Sorry about the lack of posting the last few days. This has been due to the fact that opera has swallowed up my entire life with 4+ hour rehearsals and performances. It’s a lot of fun playing in a pit, but I have to say that it is taxing on the body, the brain, and especially my time.

However, if you are interested in checking it out. (The audiences seem to love it, the laugh a lot. It’s also a chance to see something that is a big tradition. You have to figure, if it’s been around this long, it must be pretty good, right?) Marriage of Figaro is playing this weekend. Rather it was playing this weekend. This performance is the last one at 2:30 at Lane Community College. If you want to travel to Roseburg, or live there, you can check out the opera at 7:00 next Saturday, 3/11/06. (Sorry I’m not sure where it’s at)

Next week I will have my life back. And in a few weeks, I’ll be on Spring Break. It’s coming just in time too.

    All chaos erupt when the Barber of Seville stops barbering. I love this one, but I can imagine how much work it must be to get a show like that together.

    Barbarina, Marcellina, Susanna and Rosine- a dangerous environment for sure. I would’t dare go to see it without my wife!

    I hope you have a blast during spring break. I’m sure you need it!

    Yeah, I do need spring break. The opera ended up making me sick. Well… maybe not just the opera, but I did manage to catch a pretty nasty cold. One more performance this weekend in Roseburg and I can move on to a Prokofiev Symphony.
