This is a quick post just to mention how I have grown to enjoy Verdi’s Falstaff. After an exciting two nights of rehearsal and performances of Falstaff, I thought I would quickly mention we are performing the entire opera for the last time tomorrow night!! After getting off to a rocky start (sight reading the piccolo music for our first rehearsal, and lighting troubles during the first Act in our opening night – trying to read the wonderful pages of notes from hell of Verdi’s Falstaff is not an easy feat in the dark), we have now performed this show to a full house twice. Audiences have loved the crazy plot and exciting music, and I too have grown to love this music. In fact, I think I will be slightly sad to finish up tomorrow night.. I will try and cheer up by visiting Rome’s most famous Tiramisu cafe!
Watch out for the next post – a summary of my favourite places to eat so far!!
