(The too much coffee cow)
OK, here are some more singer jokes to keep you entertained while I get some more links up, thanks to Jesus Rivera on opera-l:
Q: What's the difference between a soprano and a terrorist?
A: You can negotiate with a terrorist.
Remember this when she won't wear the shoes!
On to the designs:
The Madama Butterfly Story: So I'm designing Butterfly, and rent all the costumes and wigs, because I wanted to build Hoffmann. The costumes show up and are fabulous! The wigs show up and are: helmets of Celastic, w/little bits of padding inside. So I'm pretty inexperienced with this type of wig, and figure ok, just plunk them on your heads. I go into rehearsal, distribute said wigs, and the entire chorus puts them on. Then they bow to Cio-Cio San, and in unison, every single wig falls off, making a "kerchunk" heard in Cleveland. Need less to say, rehearsal was over at that point, and I retired to find something to tie the damn things on with. I know this story is still making the rounds, so now you know: I'm the culprit!
