The opera is finished! I almost can't believe it; it's been such a huge part of my life for so long and it's suddenly over. It feels so weird. I'm relieved and happy and a bit sad. It was SO much fun! It all turned out so well. I'm happy. :)
I'm so proud of the work that we did. The cast was phenomenal; everyone sounded FANTASTIC. People grew as performers and left their comfort zones and it was just great.
I got to spend so much time with such good friends. I'm going to miss hanging out with them 24/7. My first opera = great experience. Sure, it was stressful at times, but it was totally worth it.
Now it's back to real life. What am I going to do with all this time? (ha!)
I can't wait until next year...
