I had my final Barbiere last night, and I'm already in Washington D.C., where I have rehearsal at 10:30 tomorrow morning (that's 7:30 A.M. California time - good luck!). I thought I saw snow on the ground when we landed but it was some weird lighting thing. Thank god, because going from the beach to the snow would have been really unsettling. I had a great time in the O.C. and was very pleased with how the Barbers went and with the nice people I got to work with and sing with. And now I get to spend a week in D.C. - and I get to be here for the election, which I actually think will be really exciting (or depressing, depending on what happens). But I have a feeling I might wake up tomorrow and think "where am I again? What city and what time zone and what opera?" Not that I'm complaining. As long as I have a job, an internet connection and a bed, I'm cool.
