  1. Hey! I was so happy to learn you liked my review on the Donna Elviras. I must side with you and say she’s the best character in Don Giovanni, I totally love her, she’s my favorite Mozart character, and in opera in general I think she’s also my favorite. It’s probably because she’s kind of crazy, but not Lucia crazy, a kind of crazy that makes sense in her words and reasons with people. But I think that her objective never strayed, it was always getting him back, or at least to get whoever he is wooing away from him. Like she does with Zerlina after La ci darem la mano, she’s not trying to help Zerlina, she wants Zerlina away from Don Giovanni, she doesn’t want him with anyone else. And she probably only sides with D. Anna and D. Otavio (lamest couple in opera history, God they are so dull!) just to see Don Giovanni, and to make sure he’s with no one. At least that’s my take on her, I like her that way.
    Where are you gonna see Joyce? In Europe in the Drama Queens tour? I’m so jealous of you!
    Let’s keep in touch I like talking to enthusiastic opera fans!
    And by the way, I loved this little thing the Met Opera Guild did, I retweeted them all 🙂

    • Hi Isabela!
      I totally agree about Anna and Ottavio, they’re so dull! They just wander around the place talking about love and duty and revenge and never doing anything. I mean, Ottavio is trying to help Anna kill Giovanni and in the end, a stone statue is more use than him!
      P.S. I’m going to see Joyce’s Drama Queens concert in London. I’m so so excited! I wish you could come as well. But there’s always the Maria Stuarda broadcast – that’ll be amazing!
      I’d love to keep in touch with you: I started this blog just so I could talk to people like you who share my interests. 🙂

      • Hey! Yeah, I’m definately watching the HD broadcast on the 19th, and since I’m going to the States in February I’m watching the encore there on the 6th 😀 (I’m gonna make my family watch it with me lol). Did you get a chance to listen to the live stream of Maria Stuarda on the 31st? It was awesome! I can’t wait to see it!
        It’s so great to make new opera friends, I followed you on twitter. And please, enjoy as much as you can the Drama Queens concert, do it for me!
        Happy new Year!
