La Traviata- you ready?

i'm going to be a blogger for the Vancouver Opera!
usually it's a my sis nik who blogs for them BUT since she's MIA in aussie land, imma be a'takin' over her spot tomorrow night.
So are you excited? Are you going? If not tomorrow i hope you make it out at some point to see LA TRAVIATA. 
so let me begin by advance-warning that i'm not a huge wiz when it comes to opera, however, i did take some opera with my past singing teacher [ann golden fisher- who was fan-freakin-tastic] but in all honesty, at the time, i wasn't much of one to go and do my research. and might i add that i very much appreciate the talent of an opera singer. my goodness. you really gotta take care of that voice...
someone who i'm sure knows much more than me about opera will be coming with me tomorrow night, my lovely friend alison. her and i both take Musical Theatre at Capilano University- our first year of three. i think that she is someone who will really appreciate this opera considering her knowledge of the genre. she comes to school with her big 'ol headphones and stacks of opera CDs.. so it's a pleasure that i get to bring her along with me :)
like most operas, it's very dramatic and packed with romance and heartbreak. so don't be afraid to pack some handy-dandy kleenex in your cluth/purse/murse... ye know. [for you opera-regulars, i'm sure you're already aware of this]
Man alive. i'm so excited to see this opera. i read a great illustrated synopsis however i didn't want to post it because i didn't want to give away the ending. [in all honesty i originally posted the link but then erased it thinking it was too much of a spoiler]. however, if you think i'm nutso and you would still like to know what's a'happenin' in La Traviata just visit their site and go to "opera live" and it'll give you the rundown. 
now i have to decide on what i'm going to wear tomorrow.
i mean WHAT ON EARTH am i going to wear TOMORROW!
sorry guys. i am a woman, and i intend to dress appropriately for this event. 
i'll whip up some sort of outfit. may take hours but it will be done. 
[big] PS. for those who won't be there tmrw evening i'll be blogging during the opera so be sure to stay tuned from 6:30-10PM tmrw evening! :)
