[Hope is green and springs eternal, and also, I hope some mezzos will sing eternally (and possibly wear suits for some of it). – Ann Hallenberg (Arsace) in Rossini’s “Semiramide”, Ghent 2011]
Originally, when I chose this image for today, I feared I would have to tag it with “fallen, but getting up again (and continuing to sing)”.
I am so glad I don’t have to do that. But since it is a picture I like a lot, I decided to post it anyway, with all the green-as-hope in the background. May it spread.
