My iTunes: La Donna e Mobile from Verdi's Rigoletto, sung by Luciano Pavarotti
Sorry for missing yesterday -- it was a full day and I didn't get a chance to post. I am no longer staying with the folks and am back at home for the rest of the recovery.
Once again, this is an image from the archives. But each time I post an archival image, I do some original editing with each image. I like the composition of this one a lot and have wanted to play with it, and Project Green gave me the excuse! I wish the weather were like this today -- yesterday was absolutely gorgeous, but today looks all hazy.
Yesterday was the first day I really felt back to being myself. I had a two-hour vocal master class in the afternoon, and one of the other voice students sang the piece that I'm listening to. It's very catchy, and even if you're not an opera lover or familiar with it at all, you might recognize the tune. It is so wonderful to get back into singing! It was the first time I had really been able to attempt to sing in nearly 3 months. The last time I had a truly decent voice lesson was February 6, and now that all my respiratory ailments and my back troubles are over, and can start singing again! Hopefully I'll be able to get myself back into shape for the performances I have this weekend and the audition on May 10!
And once I have my full range of mobility back (which will be another couple weeks), hopefully I'll be able to put up some new pictures and let the archives rest for a while!
