Sometimes an opera work has two key options for an aria. Very seldom do we have to worry about this, but this last year we DID have to keep track of who was on stage for one of the parts (our operas are double cast). I’ve always wondered what might happen should the message not get out about which part to play. Now I know:

I’m sure they were all horrified, but oh MY this makes for a good laugh now. (In the moment it must have been incredibly frightening. But hey, stuff happens. We all live through it.) Thanks to Paul for bringing it to my attention!
