Typical events for choristers on opening night.

Good morning lovely people.

Opening night for OLO's Carmen took place on Saturday and we couldn't have been more excited. The time in rehearsal goes by so fast and you can't help but sit back and say "Where the hell did the time go?"

Sure, being part of any performance show is exhausting and your social life is on hold. However, it comes with some of the best memories you will ever experience. It's sort of a package deal, no discounts.

My daily activities at the opera consists of:

-arriving famished and inhaling my supper
-writing my name down on the makeup list
-applying mass amounts of cake foundation to my face
-waiting in line for my wig
-putting on my costume and corset. Good lord that corset does wonderful things for cleavage
-Warm-up time!

And last but not least, the mass amounts of flattering and unflattering pictures. Look at us, aren't we just gorgeous creatures?

Opening night is never complete without the adrenaline rush kicking in right when you're about to step on stage. Enter my alter ego: The Gypsy cigarette girl:


The after party:
Tradition is to have an opening night and closing night cast party. If you're with the fun crowd, I can tell you it is quite a night. Once we got the last call at the bar, we decided we weren't ready to call it a night so we ventured out to another house party. I didn't get home until 5am. What a rebel. 

That's all for now! Will post more pictures with the leads and other gorgeous people.

See ya'll later.
