Many, many thanks to all who endured an evening on wooden benches in a cold church listening to silly Baroque ornamentation. You are truly hardcore, and the ghost of Handel smiles on you.
...so how did it go? )

I think I'm going to talk a little about what I've been working on lately, in the event that it interests anyone who might like to learn more about what I do, or who may be coming to see Giulio Cesare (which I hope you will.)
Baroque opera for beginners )

France was good, and today is a good day to tell you about this. So: come one, come all!

This is a concert performance-- that is, it'll be in evening dress, using scores (though I hope to be off book.) Still, there will be interaction and we will tell the story (which is quite a fun one, involving Cleopatra.) The score has many amazing Handelian moments, both of rapid-fire awesomeness and lyrical beauty.

Plus, I get to be emperor of the world for once in my life. Cool, eh?
Hope to see you there!

Auditioned for something, and got it.
Auditioned for something, and got it.

That hasn't happened in a while. The last time I can think of was that Tower of London gig in '06. (My work in the interim has come from people just offering me things, or from phone calls that say "Aaaaaggghsomeone'sdroppedoutcanyoudoit.")

But last Thursday, I auditioned in Oxford for a production of Handel's Julius Caesar, and the next afternoon I got an email saying I'd got the title role.

So I'll be singing Caesar in early October. Handel's opera has a romantic plot involving Cleopatra, but the dastardly schemes of the villainous Ptolemy ensure that there's plenty of drama. The music can best be described as "Baroque awesomeness."

I'm going to have to cut my hair off.

This is going to RULE.
