Thanks Philip,
HA! I'm tied to a chair at only my most important moment in the role, the ARIA! The Supers are wonderful though & we've worked it out so it's not too bad.
I was so nervous for Fenena but the cast & Maestro have been so supportive. I'm very lucky, it's one of my best experiences here so far!
I won't be making it home next month, sorry! They added a Flute & I have have to sing.

Well, you can never sing too many FLUTES! It's good that Fenena turned out so well...

Nicole

I feel like I've already sung too many Flutes! I want more Fenena's, Maddalena's, Federica's, roles like that. Medium Verdi girls are MUCH more fun!!

philip

It's good to harmonize, though...

Nicole

I harmonize plenty in Nabucco, Rigoletto AND Luisa Miller!!

philip

That's true...not to mention Rhinemaiden! You have to sing the nymph trio from ARIADNE...that's so gorgeous.

Nicole

I'm singing Dryad next season ...

philip

WOW!!! So that means...another season in Berlin??

ARIADNE's my favorite opera, you know. And the nymphs have the best music, esp. at the end when they sing that trio again and Ariadne sings a counter-melody. I die every time...

PS: I love you!

Nicole

My contract goes until June 2009. I thought you knew! I can't believe I never told you. Yes, another season at Deutsche Oper Berlin!

philip

Long term contracts are GOOD, baby! Too bad Berlin doesn't have a warmer climate though! What else have they offered or is it a secret? Will they be doing the RING again?

Nicole

No Ring next year, unfortunately. I have some repeat roles next season but nothing juicy at the moment. Hopefully that will change ...
