Shameless husband promotion

Don't like opera? You should give it a chance. Like this week at BYU. That husband of mine does a tremendously good job. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll get scared out of your skin, and you will revel in the beauty that is Mozart's music. The opera: Don Giovanni. It's about a bad guy who gets punished for his deeds. Good family values. Adam plays Leporello, Don Giovanni's servant/sidekick. Really, he's the comic relief. But, if you want to see him in that part you have to go on Friday, October 24th. You could also see him in the part of Il Commendatore, a.k.a. the old guy who dies in a duel and then comes back as a statue and drags Giovanni down to hell. That could be fun too, right? That's on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the 21st, 23rd, and 25th. Both parts are really great, but Leporello is the big one (90 minutes of Italian singing, how does he do it?!). There weren't any really good pictures of Adam online, but here's a look at some of the cast members. Adam's over in the corner wearing the glasses.

P.S. Tuesday is technically a dress rehearsal, so tickets are half-off. Sweet.

In other news, check this out. I thought it was fun.

I didn't even know you had a blog - hope you won't mind if I check it out every now and again. And Russ and I are SO BUMMED we can't be there to see the opera. :(

Anne, I'm so glad you found my blog. And we are So sad that you guys can't see the opera. Maybe we'll have to get Adam to reenact some of his favorite scenes at Christmas.

Oh man, I heard he was SO good! I'll try and go see it.

I just want to see him do the scene where he tells Donna Elvira about Don Giovanni's "little black book". :)
