another encounter with VK!

screen cap

had to give away my tickets to today and next week performances of I capuleti e I montecchi at the Bayerische Staatsoper, all thanks to a bất đắc dĩ ** meeting, hu hu hu hu but! i did shake her hands again! (in yet another dream!!) and snapped pix together after listening to her rehearsal, and had a good casual conversation while helping her picking up some stuff from the floor after the rehearsal 🙂 . The only concerning thing while  shaking hands taking place was the thought why the heck i was in Munich, since the meeting was supposed to be somewhere else… sigh. a reminder what’s playing today. i combed the internet but no luck of broadcast…

    Were the tickets part of the dream or were they real?

    tickets was 100% real, wooooaaahhhhhh, wooahhhhh

    Oh noooo …. what a disasterous year you have had opera-wise. You must be very miseable at missing her again. Perhaps The Gods have something very special lined up for you on your next attempt. Is that soon?

    Oh, you little treasure you!!! Nice jacket 😉

      a short report from an insider 😉
      (i paraphrasing):
      “VK had a little bit of problem with voice in first act, but 2nd act was fantastic. The sink scene was much hotter than with Erraught and Nakamura, so intense, really great from both VK and E.S. ”

      this is a bit of a coincidence perhaps, but in my dream (which is how this post originally came about), she had a bit of problem with the opening aria and shifted one full octave down to finish with ease in the rehearsal 😀

    Strangely another insider, or perhaps even the same one, made the same remark about act 1 and act 2 from Berlin.

    Gosh, Dr. T. your dreams are in fine detail! Will you be dreaming about sinks tonight? 😉

    • thả diều says:

      oh? which insider from which Berlin?
      surely you’ve added bayerische staatsoper facebook site to your bookmark? so that you can see latest picture such as this Eyes?

      no sink, can u believe, but i had a dream of Jill Scott! 🙂

      • Eyesometric says:

        The Berlin was Dalila earlier this year and the insider a VK fan from the UK, with friend!
        I don’t do facebook so it never occurs to me to look but I will now, I may even start watching football. Thanks for the lead to the lovely pic 🙂
