I haven't been able to post for a while - I'm in the middle of directing Rigoletto for the Florentine with a wonderful cast - Luis Ledesma and Peter Castaldi sharing the title role, Arturo Chacon-Cruz as the Duke, Georgia Jarman as Gilda, Stephen Morscheck as Sparafucile, Audrey Babcock as Maddalena, and Kelly Anderson as Monterone. They have made the process a real joy, and are all fine singing actors. If you're in this neck of the woods the weekend of May 21, I invite you to see the show.
Some more post ideas are percolating, particularly since I will be presenting a Masterclass at the Classical Singer Convention in New York City the end of May! I look forward to adding more posts over the next week.
