[CROSS-POSTED TO PLAN C]
So, as my fabulousness increases logorithmically each day, I am constantly finding new outlets for my seemingly inexhaustible creativity.
Or something like that. Maybe it’s more like, “I keep finding new ways to futz around with fun projects”, but keeping in with the idea of marketing oneself with extreme arrogance the first version will stand. Anyway.
More stuff I’m doing:
– Are you extremely rich? Then come to Powerball 2010, where you can hear me sing Roy Orbison’s “Only the Lonely”as a coloratura opera aria in Italian, and the fabulous Suzanne Kilgore sing the same in German in the style of Wagner. This is a project with performance artist Derek Liddington, who’s also doing something similar for Nuit Blanche, except with Bruce Springsteen songs. And as I am the one tasked with adapting the song into arias, I can tell you that the Orbison is much easier, since its note:word ratio is much lower that Springsteen’s, if not actually reversed.
– The same Ms. Kilgore and myself are co-writing “Call of Cthulhu: The Opera” and I am going to play Cthulhu. Because coloratura is SUPPOSED to be scary, and while I enjoy playing fragile young girls with mental health issues, the occasional role as an evil deity intent on eating the world is a nice change. Look for it summer of 2011. Oh, and it will feature an all-female cast.
And, of course, Fallen Voices: 3 operas for 2 people is a go for September of this year.
So until I am discovered by the Met and made super-famous, I have a few things to keep me busy. Speaking of “being discovered by the Met”, the recording session went very well last night, and I will hopefully have something to post by the end of the week.
