Passion of Opera Surpasses 20,000 Total Views!
It's been up and down at points with my school commitments and sometimes a lack of things about which to write. Still, the reviews of operas in Vienna, the profiles of versatile singers, and recent reviews in Virginia have definitely been highlights. Looking forward I will be putting up a review of Leonardo [not da] Vinci's Artaserse, performed in Köln by an all-star cast of countertenors and other male vocalists, as well as hopefully reviewing a few other DVDs or broadcasts by the end of September. Once I arrive in London I will definitely be reviewing opera performances that I see at the ROH. I am definitely committed for the future!
In the meantime, I will leave you with this performance of 10,000 people singing Ode to Joy from Beethoven's Symphony #9 in Japan as a reaction the 2011 tsunami.
