A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, opera a cappella now available at Albany Records
Sunday, October 14, 2007
Turandot opened last night. It was a fine production. This is a picture of Calaf, Roy Cornelius Smith, after the show. His "nessun dorma" was superb. We were thinking for awhile that we might bis (encore) the aria but we chickened out.
I could have wished for a bigger crowd--the auditorium was perhaps 2/3rds full.
About 350 stayed afterwards for LORD T. AND ELOISE.
