Ms. Dessay, THANK YOU. I was at the performance last evening, and you were superb. How, in the name of God, can you sing while 1) ironing and folding the shirts so perfectly - I watched every single one from a box above the stage! 2) removing clothes from the clothesline while singing an achingly slow aria 3) being hoisted in the air sideways while singing a high note and 4) while dancing rather complicated moves in the ACT II trio? It was a joy to see and hear you last evening. I cannot wait until La Somnambula next year!
