At the suggestion of TheJappelton through twitter, my assigned character today was Count Almaviva from Rossini’s opera, the Barber of Seville.Enjoy the fun clip below with Juan-Diego Florez as the Count himself!
Conte Almaviva is a fun character to think about and to listen to so here are some of my Almaviva-esque behaviors.
- I laughed into the sky. (Ecco ridente in cielo.. I know… The laugh sounded terrifying…)
- I seriously contemplated taking a ladder out of the garage and climbing up to my window…
- I gave my brother an impromptu and shoddy music lesson.
- I talked to my Italian teacher about tutoring some students next year.
So some of these are a little unrelated but this is a hard opera to be in the mindset of… Tweet me your characters starting at midnight to decide my fate for tomorrow!!
