We’ve now reached the final performance of the 2013/14 season at Theater Dortmund. Tonight is Carmen, and then we’ll have about a month and a half to rest and catch up with the rest of our lives.
What was accomplished this season? Le nozze di Figaro, Don Carlo, Anatevka, Tannhäuser, Carmen, Der Graf von Luxemburg, Die Jahreszeiten, Cenerentola, Alexander Nevsky, Die Entführung aus dem Serail and several other concerts. Not to mention all of the other productions that the other departments do (theater, dance, orchestra, children’s theater). Not bad!
Many of my colleagues will travel abroad, but for this break I’m staying in Germany with my wife. After all: as an American, I still feel very much “abroad”. There are still plenty of interesting places near to us, which we haven’t yet explored.
It’s been a tremendous year, and I am so happy to have been a part of it. I’m looking forward to the next one.
