In the spirit of authenticity, Opera Roanoke present an excerpt from their 1st full orchestral rehearsal of Julius Caesar!

Out of Sight Spiritualized

If I am good, I could add years to my life
I would rather add some life to my years
Life is really what you make it they say
I can’t even make my mind up today

The world keeps turnin’, it keeps me in my place
Where I stand is only three miles from space
Standin’ space is all the space I can stand
Gravity just keeps on keepin’ me down

Opera can be intimidating. For many, their introduction to opera is from Malcolm McLaren’s album, Fans. Fusing opera with R&B, his song Madam Butterfly was a surprise hit - based upon the final aria of Puccini’s Madam Butterfly opera. Have a listen!

David Sylvian - A Fire in the Forest (Meow-Meow Attack Remix) by Meow-Meow Attack
An interesting take on this song.
“Oh here comes my childhood
A penny for your secrets
It’s standing in the window
Not out here where it belongs”

Marty Thau, thank you for your friendship and support, personally and professionally. It was a pleasure to have met you and to know you.

If this was everyone’s introduction to opera…

The aria from La Wally from Diva (1981). Director: Jean-Jacques Beineix. Sung by American soprano, Wilhelmenia Fernandez. 


Ebben? Ne andro lontana,

Come va l’eco della pia campana,

La, fra la neve bianca;

La, fra le nubi d’ôr;

Laddove la speranza, la speranza

E rimpianto, e rimpianto, e dolor!


O della madre mia casa gioconda,

La Wally ne andra da te, da te

Lontana assai, e forse a te,

E forse a te, non farà mai più ritorno,

Ne piu la rivedrai!

Mai piu, mai piu!


Ne andro sola e lontana,

Come l’eco e della pia campana,

La, fra la neve bianca;

Ne andro, ne andro sola e lontana!

E fra le nubi d’or!


Well, then? I will go far away,

As far as the echo of the church bell,

There, through the white snow,

There, through the golden clouds,

There, where hope, hope

Is regret, is regret and pain!


Oh, from my mother’s happy house,

Wally will go away from you, from you.

Far enough away, and maybe,

And maybe, she will never return to you.

You’ll never see her again.

Never again, never again.


I will go alone and far away,

As far as the echo of the church bell,

There, through the white snow;

I will go, I will go alone and far,

Among the golden clouds.
