Tomorrow, rehearsals start for LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR at Opera New Jersey. Performances will be at McCarter's Matthews Theatre in Princeton. I've previously done TURANDOT, CARMEN, and BUTTERFLY in this theatre and it's good for opera. More to come.

I participated earlier this week in a lovely benefit on for Fargo Moorhead opera earlier this week at Sarello's restaurant in Moorhead. Restauranteurs Tony and Sarah Sarello have graciously and generously contributed this event for several years.
Picture is of soprano Shana Blake Hill and FM Opera General Director and tenor, David Hamilton. Blake, who sang Sacagawea in their tour of CORPS OF DISCOVERY a few years back has a beautiful voice and also a wicked sense of humor. She sang everything from "Over the Rainbow" to "Sempre Libera" to Ricky Ian Gordon songs.
The benefit raises an impressive amount from only about 25 guests.
