And to think I almost didn't go! I spontaneously decided at the very last minute to attend this sublime intimate concert of the new resident artists of l'Atelier Lyrique de l'Opera de Montreal at the Ritz-Carlton. By last minute, I mean about 3 hours before the concert began, because you know me, I needed a minimum of time to get pampered and dressed. But seriously, why did I ever think of turning down an opportunity to go to the Ritz?? The Ritz AND a classical singing recital with some of the greatest young singers in Canada!
Because, lets be honest. This year's resident singers must be the greatest group they've had in years! They have a contagious energy, an engaging scenic presence, and voices to make you shiver with delight! You might actuallt have already had the opportunity to witness Kevin Geddes and Myriam Leblanc in Opera de Montreal's latest production of Aida.
OUR TOP THREE OF THE EVENING
I am passionate about opera. I choose to see the best in the things around me. I make the most out of every situation. I am an enthusiast. I don't pretend to be a critic, and I certainly am no snob. These are my thoughts, highly influenced by too many high note vibrations and good wine.
