Met supernumerary and willing informant "Orsino" has brought the following to my attention after this afternoon's TOSCA rehearsal:
"Debbie Voigt is fucking fierce as Tosca."
I know, big surprise, right? Orsino just has a way with words I tend to truly appreciate. He also said that Giordani replacement Franco Farina's Cavaradossi is "actually quite good", that his act iii aria "sounded pretty good" and most importantly "he seems like a nice guy".
I will be seeing Ms. Fierce and Mr. Nice Guy on May 8th, and am a tad re-energized after this post rehearsal round-up. Thanks, Orsino.
