You Know What It Is?

It's my birthday, that's what. That means that a year ago I was standing in that sketchy hallway waiting for Mr. Florez to exit the Met so I could give him a squeeze. And he was so nice, checking the photo to see how it looked and all that. Ah well. That didn't help - the pictures were still terrible. That's ok. The whole experience was fun.

So once you're done reminiscing with me, take a look at these videos of John Osborn in a recent performance of Lucia in Belgium. Keep your ears open for his high E flat near the end!!!

Here's another E flat from Johnny O:

And some footage from I think a rehearsal:

Bravo, Johnny!!! It's not too late to skype me and sing happy birthday. Wait it probably is in Belgium. Oh well, maybe next year.
