Martha (Lindsey) is a rising young singer, known particularly for her powerful lieder recitals. Her secret for such performances lies in the haunting images (Owens & Oropesa) she creates and throws herself into for each song she sings. The nearest she has to a friend is one of her former teachers, Loban (Hvorostovsky), a stern and frigid man for whom she nurtures a deep platonic admiration. As her visions grow stronger and stronger, she is uncapable of controlling herself, suffering from a crisis during an important recital.
OK well we didn’t think anyone was going to come out because there was a sponsor’s drinks thing BUT HE APPEARED MAGICALLY and this lady who was also waiting SCREAMED AAH when he came out, and then he was so lovely and asked me and Dilys if we were music students (because I think he assumes young people = can’t be into classical music any other way??!?! you could see it in his eyes and I looked RIGHT IN ‘EM) and then he was sort of moving off and asked what I was studying even though I was probably giving him the crazy adoration eyes?? and I said what I study and then he had to go and aaaahahah he is literally my height and he has great skin
Remember that time Reese and I saw Glass Menagerie and Dana Ivey was there and we were at the Booth and all I wanted to do was cry and ask her what it was like to be back in the theatre where she did the best musical of all time?
the skirt is actually a really nice forest green colour and it HAS POCKETS?? I would wear a potato sack if it had pockets
milk tea: current fashion obsession
mid to long statement skirts: I have the one above in bright red as well and this one, and this one my mum gave me:
orange ice cream: something I’ve always wanted to tell you
ages ago I had a dream that we were just riding around on a bus in London (probably going the ROH) and I was just thinking ‘wow Reese is finally here, this is really nice’ and then I think we met Joyce at some sort of signing but she didn’t like me very much.
