No school tomorrow! I'm so excited. This never happens! You all know what that means! Kim staying up late and blogging. Hurray for you all.
I'm very sad that I missed the broadcast of Damnation of Faust today. People called and texted me to tell me that it was on, but I HAD to study for my huge music history test. :( Hopefully they'll show it again and/or release it on DVD. I would have loved to see all the innovative stuff they did and I would have loved to see Susan Graham. Il Trovatore broadcast yesterday. I even heard some of Sondra Radvanovsky's interview (which was really interesting). Her speaking voice reminds me so much of Joyce DiDonato's. I think it's the accent.
I'm going to see Cecilia Bartoli at Carnegie on Tuesday. I CANNOT WAIT!! This is going to be my first time seeing her live. I am beyond excited! This has really been an eventful year for me: I saw Renee Fleming for the first time (live), I was in my first opera, I met Renee Fleming, I met up with my opera-geek buddies, I had season tickets to the Met...the list goes on. Seeing Bartoli is just going to be another amazing night in a really fantastic year. I'll let you know all about it afterward.
