So excited to sing Ruggiero for the Emerging Artist Performance of Handel’s “Alcina” tomorrow Saturday 18th @kennedycenter at 7pm! It’s a fascinating opera full of magic, crazy disguises, and #lustatfirstsight ! It’s popular in baroque opera nowadays for women to play the roles of men (back when the opera was written, these roles were played by castrati - I’ll let you look that one up!). In “Alcina”, I get to play the part of a knight hidden away on a magical island by the beautiful enchantress Alcina who undergoes many trials and heartache in an effort to regain his memory. Thank you @scottsuchman for the great photos!! Hope to see you there :)
I took a few minutes to recharge by the pool with my @pranamat#massage set. #Acupressure massage helps strengthen my body and improves my physical performance. It's also a great treatment against #fatigue and #stress, helping the body warm up before and recover after the #training. #pranamat is a must-have for anybody and a perfect #gift.
Something we’ve been working on! She finally has it down. In the beginning she would try and fall sideways because she didn’t trust me enough to catch her. But with some work, she finally trusts me all the way! This really helped our bond 💜 she did hurt me along the way 😂 sometimes she will just throw her body weight back but I still have to praise her for doing it. I love trying new things with her
Would you sleep here?⠀
There were several nights that it got down to -25c but with our snow walls, hot water bottles and multiple down layers we were as snug as bugs wrapped in down, cuddling a hot water bottle sleeping on a glacier.⠀
