Preparations are well under way for the cruise which I leave for in 13 days time!!! I am now in the process of learning four separate programmes for the concerts I will be singing in with Opera Barcarola while on board. The music we are performing ranges from opera and operetta to jazz and musical theatre. There are solos, duets and ensembles and at least 20 of these need to be off copy. It's lucky that I have a break from teaching next week so I can dedicate all my time to getting the repertoire learned. I will rehearse with the group for the first time this Sunday and I'm really looking forward to finally meeting them.
In other news my tourist visa for India has been successfully processed and I will pick up my passport tomorrow. I am so happy that this time I will get to see India this time around.
Better get back to learning those notes!!
