L'etoile

What a charming, charming opera! It simply blew me away. All of my expectations were exceeded. NYCO, you have not disappointed me!

Needless to say, I had a lovely night in NYC on Saturday night. L'etoile was brilliant. I haven't laughed so hard in a while. And all the cuteness onstage! I love love love this opera! And the entire production was just so beautiful; between the music and the singing and the choreography and the costumes and everything, it was just an aesthetic pleasure through and through.

I have to admit, though, that the best part of it all was the fact that the prima donna was a pants role! YAY MEZZOS! <3 Another great role to add to my To-Do list. :)

Hurray for French opera!
