This was an opera I was really sorry to say goodbye to. It was not terribly stressful, it was beautiful, and it was new. It’s (almost!) always great fun to do something I’ve never done before. I’ll miss La Rondine.

I’ll also miss my pitpals™. I really love working with the Opera San José orchestra. It just brings me great joy. Of course the woodwinds are the ones I spend the most time with. Isabelle, Mary, Pam, Mark, Janet, Debbie and Carolyn … I’ll miss working in the pit with you!

Next up for Opera San José is the Irene Dalis Vocal Competition, on May 22. No orchestra on that one. I’m considering attending, but we’ll see.

Now I look forward to next season, and Anna Karenina (West Coast Premiere!), Tosca, The Barber of Seville and La bohème. Great music. Great company. Get your season tickets!

Next up for me: Symphony Silicon Valley and a bit ‘o Tchaikovsky.
