A sick but strong soprano

Hitting the high notes

Jennifer Rowley performs the lead in Mese Mariano and Le Villi

As I was wrapping up my boring Friday night I ran into Bob Guild and Nancy Barton of Columbia, who I see at Spoleto more often than in Columbia. They'd just come from the double bill operas Mese Mariano and Le Villi where it was announced before curtain that the Jennifer Rowley, the lead in both, was sick, but she would perform.

They were completely blown away by her performance and the operas.

Can't keep a good soprano down.

And I really wish I'd been there — I'd see those operas again in a second, sick singer or no.
