Opera Tampa: La Boheme

2019 highlight:  Singing in the chorus for Puccini’s opera, “La Boheme.”  I auditioned for the opera chorus the day before my birthday last July.  I had to wait all the way till late March to begin rehearsals.  Our performances were on April 26 & 28, 2019 in Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Tampa.  I enjoyed every bit of the process:  from musical rehearsals to staging rehearsals, singing with the orchestra, even having my head wrapped in plastic for a wig mold!  Watching the curtain rise on opening night, seeing the conductor and looking out to the excited audience was overwhelming in the most incredible, joyful way.  I loved my costume, especially my hat!  I loved my castmates and I really loved singing.  Heart = full.
