Tonight was the second to last performance of the Opera San Jose season. It felt mighty long. We did start four minutes late (I didn’t find out why; this company is wonderful about beginning on time so this was very unusual.), some tempi were a bit on the sluggish side (I didn’t find out why, but it sure make things harder) and I had a difficult time remaining focussed (I do know why; I had a two hour rehearsal prior to the evening’s opera), but I did manage to do so. Of course one has no choice, so we make it happen even when the Evil Brain Voice™ is saying, “You aren’t gonna make it!”

Some people work full time or nearly so and then do opera to top off their night. I really don’t know how they do it!
