In two weeks, I'm off to Rome, Italy to participate in Operafestival di Roma's Summer 2005 program. I'll be singing in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, Puccini's Suor Angelica, and Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. Have any of you done similar programs? Do you have any advice about Italy, singing, stuff to remember to bring, things to watch out for, etc? I would really appreciate your thoughts as this is my first time doing a program like this and I've never been to Italy. Thanks!
A few weeks ago, I posted a link to a website where I have put the recording of my entire May recital. I just wanted to thank all of you for the incredible feedback that you have given me; I was absolutely blown away by the amount of kindness, support, and helpful advice that I have been getting! I just wanted to let you all know that the site is moving to a more permanent location and that while the old site will continue to work for a few more weeks, here's the new one (which will exist indefinitely and will be updated on a monthly basis with information about my vocal adventures and plans along with any new recordings I might have):
Again, thanks for everyone's wonderful responses. If any of you have any additional thoughts or reactions, please do share them with me, no matter how negative or picky they might be.
