Castleton 8:00 pm July 2 2014
We had a bad storm in Castleton last night which knocked out the electric power and the internet. So we all went to bed in the dark. But the lights came on at 5 am although the Internet remains out for the foreseeable future given that it is the Fourth of July tomorrow and then the weekend…….this appears to be an annual recurrence!
Tyler Nelson, Javier Arrey (DG) and Chloé Moore (Donna Anna)
The Don Giovanni dress rehearsal was this morning – lots of progress and ready to go! It is heart warming to see Tyler Nelson as a really distinguished Don Ottavio. Tyler was with us for a couple of seasons at COT, in Cavalli’s Giasone in 2011, an unforgettable performance in drag as Delfa. And he returned the following year as a member of the ensemble for our Charpentier Médée. He is an artist of consummate integrity – used to the full as Ottavio.
I will try to get a collection of photos of the Don Giovanni up in an album at some point, for the benefit of Castleton artists. But you may have to be patient. The internet downage is a pain! And it is now 10 pm and I am done for the night........Happy Fourth of July to everyone.
