I'm looking forward to Long Beach Opera's next production, not only because I'm getting paid to be there, but because of the unique venue: the hull of the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
In the line up: "The Emperor of Atlantis" by Viktor Ullmann and "The Clever One" by Karl Orff.
I was unaware of composer Viktor Ullmann's tragic death:
I've not played either opera, and am looking forward to learning the music (did I mention I'm getting paid to play this?).
I'd better hit the practice room...
