On This Historic Day...

We apologize for the delay, but we here at the Aria Serious tower have been busy watching history being made with the swearing in of President Barack Obama.

Ontop of that, this morning was our sitzprobe for Tosca, where the orchestra and singers come together for the first time. Everything is sounding great and we have a great opera opening on Saturday.

But in honor of this historical day, which was on the minds of everyone at the sitzprobe -- there was even a "Yes We Can" cake our wonderful Assistant Stage Manager Kerry Masek baked last night -- we have a clip below of the beautiful Renee Flemming performing Rodgers & Hammerstein's "You'll Never Walk Alone" for The Obama Inaugural Celebration.

Renee begins at around minute 6 for those with Attention Deficit Disorder.

Just a slight correction, because credit should be given where credit is due: Kerry Masek did indeed decorate the theater and make cookies and muffins, but the "Yes We Can" cake was made from scratch by our other incredible Assistant Stage Manager, Megh Jennings.
