  1. Oh God! How can this happen?! I think it was a problem of miscommunication between her and the opera staff, or ? was this her firs rehearsal, the general one? I mean, I wouldn’t wish anybody to be in this situation-as my husband is an opera singer,I understand what they go through…their worst nightmare is to forget the lyrics or the music..
    Well, anyway I’m happy it ended well and she remembered the other play.. it shows she has experience and she could focus and pass the panic..Happy ending!
