This morning, on my flight from Chicago back to New York, it made me so proud to see the other people on the plane read the New York Times with the review and huge photo of our Nightingale on the front page of the Arts section. Tuesday's opening at BAM was a wonderful success and it is wonderful to see that the critics agree. What an achievement for our company!
I had flown to Chicago for one day to attend the dress rehearsal of Handel's Hercules, a new production by the fabulous Peter Sellars, conducted by Harry Bicket and a stellar cast of Handelians, a co-production of Chicago Lyric Opera with the COC. We'll be presenting the production in a few years from now (with the same cast and conductor) and I can't wait to see it on our stage. We'll all be in for a treat.
Now, I'm back in New York for an afternoon of auditions and the second performance of Nightingale at BAM tonight.
