    Top of the morning to you all (and good afternoon to those across the pond). I bought a ticket to attend the premiere of Thais this Saturday since I unfortunately had to miss the final dress rehearsal Marshie invited me to ????. But he raved about Ailyn Perez so I don’t want to miss her in this role, plus it’s such a beautiful opera and it’s going to be a matinee so it works out perfectly. If anyone else will be there and wants to say hey lmk ????. I’ll be sitting in the orchestra row X I believe.
