14:00-17:00 DG Cast 3 Performance
19:00-19:30 Music Theatre Showcase
20:00-21:00 Suor Angelica
Zach and I went to Schwedenplatz to get a slice of Sachertorte and a coffee. Afterwards, we went to Zara and Lush. We got back on the U4 to Landstraße to go to the mall and get Zach’s train ticket. We walked around a few shops and ended up getting fresh juices.
We got back at 13:00 to the performance space and I got back in costume. I got to die in the overture scene and come back during Giovanni’s aria in the second act.
We took more cast pictures and got an early dinner at the same Italian restaurant. I got a lemon spaghetti dish. So good!
We went back for the musical theatre showcase and Suor Angelica. I was asked to take pictures for the showcase. It went really well. We had a short pause, and then Suor Angelica. I was sitting next to an old man who brought his Suor Angelica score with him. He was following along with his little flashlight. He also hummed whenever there were wrong notes in the orchestra.
The show went really well. We had a local artist play as the statue of the Virgin Mary. She works at the Schonbrunn palace nearby as a statue. She was amazing. The conductor’s son played Suor Angelica’s son that comes to her at the end of the opera. (I won’t spoil the ending, if you have never seen the piece.)
After the show, we striked everything from the theatre and headed back to the hotel. We were meeting up with the rest of the cast at a bar called Heuer. People had some drinks, and then we headed to a tequila bar for some latin music. We got a small group together and danced for a little bit.
