Did anyone have a chance to listen to Chicago Lyric broadcast of Le Nozze di Figaro, starring Joyce DiDonato, Nicole Cabell, Danielle Denise and a couple of other greats yesterday?
Not that I remembered to.
Shame on me, I completely forgot about it, even though Joyce had informed her blog readers of the date and the time some time ago.
Anyway, Troy and I were driving to my mom yesterday afternoon and as usual he demanded music. So I turned the radio on and here it was Porgi, amor, beautifully sung by Musetta of the century, Nicole Cabell, shortly followed by Joyce's incredible Voi che sapete.
I really thought the production was a wonderful example of both great individual and team work.
Here is what comment I left on Joyce's blog upon return and every word of it is true (except that I forgot to write that Troy was singing along too):
I had a long drive this afternoon and was very fortunate to listen to Le Nozze di Figaro broadcast! Beautiful brilliant work!
My toddler was in the car with me and clapped through the whole Porgi, amor and Voi che sapete. Even though he is familiar with some Handel, Gluck and some Mozart, this was his first encounter with Le Nozze. I truly believe it made his day - he has been all brightened up and happy all day today.
Have a very happy holiday, and as always - thank you!
Happy 4th Everyone !!!
