Oh.. I was going to buy tickets for Hamilton for my hubby's birthday.. but rap.. *twitch*. Rap & Country really grate on my nerves. I'll have a listen before buying tickets. Thanks for the tip Alatar!

Sunny.. I agree.. 'Phantom of the Opera' is simply sublime. It took a very long time to get that out of my head and I didn't mind a bit. We saw 'Phantom', 'Wicked' and 'Beauty & the Beast' years ago when we went to New York.

I don't like rap either, but Hamilton is transcendent.

Yeah, I was giving it a listen and I didn't mind the 'rappiness' of what I heard. We might give it a go. Reading the lyrics in advance is a good idea too.

Anyone who was on TOB will be surprised to hear me singing Puccini :shock:

Yes, Puccini is not my favourite composer, but every once in a while he just nails it. Like in this moment from La Fanciulla del West. Dick Johnson is about to be hanged (or so he thinks) and is asked if he has anything to say before they proceed. He asks that they don't tell Minnie (the soprano character) what has happened to him:

"Let her believe that I am free and far away,
Following a new path of redemption.
She will wait for me to return,
And the days will pass,
And the days will pass, and I won't return.

Minnie, the only joy of my life...
Minnie, who has loved me so much!"



Disclaimer: because of the pandemic, I had to play piano and sing at the same time, something I never thought I could do. It's not my best singing or my best playing, but it's my best (only!) example of attempting both at once :D
