Sorry I’ve been a little non-responsive…
…I’m preparing for final exams early next week.
But this reminded me, though I’ve taken a break from acting, my daughter is making her theatrical debut this evening in the Long Leaf Opera Company’s Christmas production of Amahl and the Night Visitors. Break-a-leg Mimi!

ÂÂ delightful production and a great way to start out the holiday season.Â–Susanna Rodell Â The News and Observer
ÂÂ powerful and utterly gorgeous mezzo voice of Denise Payton, who plays AmahlÂs mother. Richly textured, strong, utterly confident, it made the listener yearn for more.Â–Susanna Rodell Â The News and Observer
Amahl, a crippled shepherd boy, tries to tell his mother about what he has seen outside; an enormous star with a long tale. His mother, used to his habitual lying, grows angry; she is even angrier when Amahl tells her, that there is a knock at the door and there are three kings who have come to visit themÂ then the magic begins!
