Opera - The Backstage Story

The fun times never end backstage during tech week. And humor must be in high demand to aid our poor, weary souls and bodies through the trials (literally) of tech staging rehearsals.

I bring you now, some of the quote gathered in one evening, overheard in the men’s wardrobe room:

“Those ARE my feet that stink. COOL!”
~ after removing his soiled ADIDAS

“Hey! That’s not my sword!”
~ by the prop table

“Why is yours bigger than mine?”
“Because I have a large mellon.”
~ comparing tricorne hats

“He’s got a big instrument.”
~ complimenting the Speaker’s voice

“Actually, truth be told, I have THREE balls. But just one is in the sack.”
~ Chorister bragging of his bowling prowess.

Chorister #1: “It's amazing how six inches can make such a difference.”
Chorister #2: "Yes, in all espects of life."
~ During a staging adjustment of 'six inches to the left'.

Tricorne's? In Die Zauberflote? Nifty!

Now THAT'S better! A post about actual opera, way to go, EB.

May I suggest another post? What about the whole set thing... these weren't the originally ordered sets. What happened with all that?
