yesterday I thought it was only the rehearsal of the opera
I didn't even bring my music score and I went to the theater
and my colleague said to me "little girl, we have the performance tonight!" whaaat?
the rehearsal before the concert for italians are always a minute
cuz all of the songs for them are really really familiar, but I'm taiwanese!!
The chorus was even thinking about not carrying the score on the stage...
I was all panic and I didn't even bring my dress,
I just finished the school teaching and there were only the chop and a flute in my bag
So poor Ivano had to send my dress for me.
All of the songs were extremly big and famous.
I just have to type the program (if you are my music companies) and you'll c.
Bizet~overture ed intermezzi dalla "Carmen"
Bizet~"Habanera" della "Carmen"
Mozart~"La ci darem la mano" dal "Don Giovanni"
Puccini~mouth closed "Madama Butterfy"
Puccini~"Quando men vo" da "La Boheme"
Verdi~"Preludio Atto III" dal "La Traviata"
Verdi~ "Va Pensiero" dal "Nabucco"
Verdi~"Pace mio Dio" da "La Forza del Destino"
Piovani~La vita e' bella
Mascagni~Intermezzo dalla "Cavalleria Rusticana"
Leoncavallo~"Vesti la Giubba" dai "Pagliacci"
Mascagni~Scena e Preghiera
Verdi~"Brindisi" da "La Traviata"
even though there are not too many songs, but every piece is the classic.
our soprano of yesterday was the one who played "Turandot"~G. Casolla
when she's singing the La Forza del Destino,
we were all having the chicken skin, cuz she's soooooo good,
so powerful and her voice was full of the character.
I thought about I used to listen to my school mate singing this song,
it always sounded weird and scary. until yesterday I found out
it's a great great work!!!!!!
