Thanks for the great article! I wanted to note that we have a few pairs of tickets that were returned by subscribers this morning, and their loss is anyone's gain! operamemphis.org
Congrats to all involved! Sorry I couldn't be at the ceremony this year.
This is what I suggested singing, but apparently there were concerns about "academic reputation",etc.
Great article. Though I should point out that if I have any say in it, outdoor operettas in Overton Park may once again be the rage. http://www.facebook.com/operamemphis?ref=h…
Yep--that was Falstaff. We hoped giving him a tankard rather than a champagne glass would help ID him. In terms of some of them maybe having more than one right answer, we promise to have an open mind. (For instance, the three lads dressed as ladies were meant to be The Three Little Maids from Mikado, but we are also accepting Ugly Stepsisters.) After all, the more right entries we get, the more tickets we get to give away to Memphis schoolkids. Oh, and the gals in bathrobes were just there for that one scene. They are actually two other characters when fully dressed.
Maybe this is playwriting for evil, possessed dummies, like that one in that movie? In which case, I support giving them a creative outlet for their aggression.
