Performances and Preparation
After a wonderful performance of Brahms' Liebeslieder and Neue Liebeslieder Walzer with the Lonestar Classical Voices Quartet at Georgia College on Monday night, it's time to dig deep and intensify preparation for Adina in L'elisir d'amore with the Gauteng Opera (Johannesburg, South Africa). I love preparing repertoire, setting it aside for a time, and then returning to it. This often leads to a deeper musical and interpretive experience, and is a process I really enjoy. I can't wait to perform Adina in L'elisir in August. What a fun role!
