All's well that ends well. The right people end up together as a couple (in this case Ernesto and Norina) and many worthwhile lessons are learned -- by turns amusing and painful but always accompanied by gorgeous melodies from Signor Donizetti.
My people did a fine job with Don P (as we call him around here): singers, director, conductor and pianist. Not to mention all the production help (sets, costumes, props), without which opera does not happen.
The audience was definitely enthusiastic and we know that word of mouth will bring even more folks to hear FNO's next offering.
So stay tuned! Now back to practicing my high notes in the garden.....
