A Star is Born!




Our little Celeste had an amazing opportunity to be in an opera last week! My mom was the producer and put months of effort into it. I was so knocked out by all the work she put in... from the vocal coaching, to co-directing, set designing, costuming, make-up, props, etc. It was an ambitious endeavor and a great success! But once again, I'll let the pictures do the talking...



Here she is before the show- a little nervous, but super excited!

And here are some pictures onstage from the dress rehearsal. She was actually supposed to play a boy... a sad boy, named Sorrow. She didn't look much like a boy, but it didn't matter. :)


At curtain call, some of the cast members presented her and my mom with flowers...
Here she is after the show, with her Uncle Ben, who performed as well, and absolutely nailed his arias! Woo-hoo Ben!! Ben's girlfriend Sharon also did an amazing job. Way to go Sharon!!



The whole night was a pretty magical experience for a 5 year-old. What a wonderful memory this will be for her.

That looks like a lot of fun! I wish we lived close enough to be able to attend things like that.
