Figaro # 2 tonight.
Well, I followed my opening night schedule pretty much to the letter on Thursday. The show went quite well- everyone in the cast bumped it up a notch and we had a very energetic performance. I felt quite good about the way I sang it, having oversung the dress. In a misguided effort to make an overly big sound, I used up a lot of my vocal resources in the first act and was tired for the rest of the show. At opening, however, I managed to sing well within my means the whole night and was MUCH happier with the result. I think I sang 'se vuol ballare' better than I ever have before, but there were still moments of 'non piu andrai' that were too heavy. Hopefully I can keep the mojo for tonight's show.
