Tongiht, prior to the performance beginning, a very kind cellist came up to me. The gist of what she said was that she really loved my opening solo … and that I set the entire tone of the opera.


That sort of set me up for fear. I’m silly that way. I then couldn’t help but get this out of my head, and worried that I’d totally blow it. For the entire audience.

Funny how that happens.

Anyway, I played fine. Whew!

The pit was a wee bit more bearable, but not by much. Such is life. And when I first came in some of the stand lights were out. Soon after that they all went out. Oops! It was the wonderful space heaters they brought in for us; so much for those, eh? At least they got the lights back up before downbeat. 🙂
