The Bartered Bride and a new friend

prettypammie and I went to see my Aunt & Uncle's translation last night, in its premiere performance by The Bronx Opera. It was definitely more amusing for me in English, although I bet I would have gotten most of it in its original language, Czech. Apparently this newly commissioned translation is the first time The Bartered Bride has been translated to English from Czech. All other prior translations to English were done from a German translation of the original. How silly.

Singing a stutter convincingly looked very hard...but in some way, fun.

Anyway, Marenka (I don't know how to accent characters in UNICODE or HTML...sorry), was a very strong performer, as were they all.

Oh, in other news, hello to Airelle fuzcat) and Hilary (padawanhilary), and probably others...time to run the list again. Are we having fun yet?

See several of you--I wish I could see all of you at Arisia next week.
