Yes We Can-Can!

Change of plans for the summer — I’ll still be going to Halifax for the Halifax Summer Opera Festival, but instead of Sondheim’s Into the Woods, I’ll be performing in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld.  I’ll be singing the role of Cupid, the God of Love.  Incidentally, my most recent performance (just over a month ago) was as Amor, the God of Love, in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice.  Though beautiful, the Gluck opera lacks the humour — and the Can-Can! —  that are integral to the Offenbach work.  I’m looking forward to comparing and contrasting these two interpretations of the same character.  And did I mention the Can-Can?!?! I guess you could say that I’m really looking forward to that, too!
