A: so, I had a big "only weird for opera people" moment the other night
J: what was that?
A: choir sang at this nice community Halloween concert that the university orchestra does
A: and the theme was "Dangerous Women" with fun orchestral excerpts from the usual suspects
A: we sang the carmen entrance sequence
A: but, they also did the dance of the seven veils from Salome
J: oh sweet
A: which was all well and good, and the orchestra did a good job, but the community involvement part involved dancers from the Hyde Park Ballet academy
A: who were ACTUAL 15 year old girls
J: that's so genius
J: and did they go all the way?
A: it was really uncomfortable
J: what were they thinking?
J: it was like at the 4th grade talent show when Ariel Whiting Simons sang "She's Like the Wind" a capella and she replaced all the "She's" with "He's" so it was "He's like the wind through my tree..." etc
J: and also she was 9
J: "I feel his breath on my face...his body close to me"
