In the last 2 weeks, I’ve had two interesting communications from leaders of opera companies that I’ve worked with in the past. One was asking me to come work on a very ambitious role to see if it is right for me, with the idea that I might be performing it this summer. The other was making sure I was reserving a spot for an audition for a role I have done before, but the person in question made sure to point out that I listed this role on my resume.
My take-away from this is that I must have made some sort of impression on these folks at some point. They are giving me the opportunity to prove myself. They have every right to say no. But what they are saying, for the moment, is that there might be something there.
That’s encouraging. I need some encouragement right about now.
