|2007 in review

I thought that, to match the post looking forward at 2008, I'd post one where we can discuss the year gone by.|
What did you see?
What did you enjoy?
What could have been better?
Myself, I didn't get to as much as I would have liked as I was ridiculously busy most of the year. I missed OA's autumn season entirely, though did see Pirates of Penzance with the help of a friend in the cast. I had better luck with the spring season, though, seeing Don Giovanni and Les Contes de Hoffmann (which I had to see again so, like a good little mezzo, I could study Dominica Matthews more thoroughly). I also enjoyed those of the set of three pre-opera recitals that OA's young artists program put on, especially since the young artists being featured were both mezzos. Although I prefer Dominica to Sian Pendry. There's something about her vocal production which makes me worry for her future.
And of course, was there anyone who didn't enjoy Teddy Tahu Rhodes' costuming (and lack thereof) as the Don? He definitely made Mozart worthwhile.
