Welcome coincidence

I’m not sure if you noticed, but Ariodante has arrived in select cities (primarily France and the UK – USA, it’s coming to you in a few weeks!) It’s a most welcome release, because I’ve been eager for it to appear for well over a year now, seeing as we recorded it in January of 2010.


Well, fast foward many months, many roles, many cities, many planes, many adventures, and here I am back in the very spot of the recording ~ lovely Lunigo, outside of the even lovelier Venice (ah, so near, yet so far!)~  and am larynx-deep in this marvelous and endlessly fascinating role. Lo and behold, as I looked out my window this evening, this was waiting for me:

Propitious, no?

I have begun to catch my breath, but it won’t last for TOO long as there is an exciting tour looming ahead, not to mention revisiting my beloved Cendrillon ~ HOWEVER, I predict the myriad of tales and thoughts and insights that have passed through my mind might just make it to this very space before too long.  Months have passed, I am well aware, but as I’ve always said, writing is recreational for me, and my focus will always be on my performing. I’m afraid that aspect has demanded all of my resources of late, yet happily, the end is in site!

Ah, but before I go? It’s been an AMAZING few months! Thank you, to each of you, for your tremendous support!

Looking forward to seeing you, perhaps, in Baden Baden, Paris or London!

Cheers!

And just like *that* - right into the middle of a technicolor world!! Elated to be in #Bogotá for the first time and ready to launch our final tour of #InWarAndPeace throughout South & North America starting at the @teatromayor On Wednesday. Stay tuned...this is going to be deeply special!

“Grazie, London.” Thanks for the wicked, wonderful memories!!! #Agrippina

What an indescribable joy it has been to bring the many faces of #Agrippina to life here at the @royaloperahouse with such an extraordinary cast, crew, and team-at-large for such fantastic audiences! I’ve been well aware from the first day that this was an instance of “as good as it gets”. Luckily, I get to spend a lot of time with this powerhouse this season ... so while it’s “goodbye” for now, I shall return to the quest for the throne shortly! 😎 PS As if we needed reminding: #absolutepowercorruptsabsolutely Photo: Bill Cooper / ROH

So. Many. Thoughts! Like how hard it is to think that we only have 2 shows left in this incredibly special run of #RohAgrippina! How time flies when you’re grasping for all that power! Photo: Bill Cooper / ROH

Wishing each of you a beautiful, restorative Sunday . . . ❤️

I’m elated to bring to you my most treasured vocal tracks. These are the things I turn to when I’m looking for more beauty in my life. Listen to my hand-picked pieces from across the ages that showcase the full expressive power of the human voice on @applemusic. Enjoy!! 🔗 Link in bio.

Having the time of my life at the @royaloperahouse with this timely monster of a role. Still boggles my mind how fortunate I am to take such wild journeys on the stage! Photo: Bill Cooper / ROH

What a gift to sing Handel’s #Agrippina for the @royaloperahouse and you gorgeous #London Public!! I’m already sad to think we only have 4 more performances left! #catchusifyoucan #absolutepowercorruptsabsolutely Thank you, Marcin, for this lovely souvenir of the curtain call 😎

After the intensive and wonderful journey to get #Agrippina up on her feet, full of her manipulative and cruel machinations, what a joy to return to #nature in all Her restorative, healing, “real world” glory. Aaaaahhhhhhh......
