And So It Begins...

Dress rehearsal week has finally arrived. Over the next week the cast and pit orchestra will spend over 30 hours practicing and rehearsing for The Marriage of Figaro. I am a mixture of excitement and apprehension- excited to perform, nervous about staying on top of my class work. I am trying my best to channel the calmness and wellness I will need. I even bought a package of refreshing & totally delicious mint and tarragon tea to help soothe my senses. However, the experience and the final production are completely worth the stress and exhaustion. There are few things as grand as opera.

What are you pouring your energy into this week?

Merry Writings!


  1. OH! How exciting! Do you say "break a leg" to musicians as well? How much FUN! I know you will do brilliantly and keep up with everything. Marriage of Figaro is one of my faves! :)

  2. I am looking forward to attending a performance of the opera sometime this next week.

  3. "There are few things as grand as an opera"--I want a bumper sticker that says that! I'm so excited to see it! Hell Week is always rough, but you like that masochistic kind of s***, you're a runner remember? Hehe! It's all worth it.

    I just know it's going to be brilliant. :)

    Much Love,

  4. Wow! How excited you must be!
    And so much on your plate right now! I don't know how you do it all.
    I'm sending you soothing, relaxing deep breaths of peace.

    And thanks so much for your awesome support on my "blog-stalker" post. I'm still figuring it all out.

  5. I like how you bought mint tea to deal with the stress. I bought a twelve-pack of Sam Adams... To each her own, I guess!
