La Traviata

Any opera lovers out there?  I am playing in Winter Opera Saint Louis’s upcoming production of “La Traviata” this weekend.  The performances are Friday night and Sunday afternoon.  Visit the website for more details.  They are calling it the original “Pretty Woman.”  I don’t know how I feel about that.  But it should be a great performance—the singers sound fantastic and of course the orchestra is great.

We had six hours of rehearsal today…whew!  I’m completely exhausted.  This week is pretty busy with rehearsals on top of my regular teaching schedule (with a few adjustments due to all the rehearsals…). 

And really, I just want to sit around and stare at my shiny new ring.  How do other people handle this dilemma?
