Leonora is going to the concert with three principal singers from this season’s production of “Die Walküre” at the Lyric Opera of Chicago tonight. Her main voice crush will be there. Somebody is very, very excited.
Rodents usually hibernate. Leonora, on the other hand, aestivates, because there is no point in not hibernating in summer, during the opera off-season.
New tenor crush? Yes-yes.
Escapism as it is
On the same day when Leonora got to meet her favorite bass-baritone, we also met Lyric Opera’s music director and principal conductor. Some fangirling took place.
Let the season of audience kvetching begin!
There are some valid exceptions to the rule of only wearing jeans to the opera, all right?
