My time in Italy has come to an end. With travelling to and from shows and cleaning up the costume shop, the last two weeks in Italy went by in a whirlwind. Despite only being with the program for five weeks saying goodbye to new friends is always hard. I made some worthwhile connections as well as wonderful friends. After finishing each Opera, in the costume shop we had to restock each of the garments back into costume storage.
I have asked permission from my supervisor to post photos from our production. The following photos are from the Voci Nel Montefeltro Facebook.
Friday evening the local Teatro Café held a special Rock N’ Roll America concert as a special send off for their many American patrons leaving. It was the perfect send off and goodbye to the sweet little town of Novafeltria. There are many cities that hold a special place in my heart and Novafeltria is now among them.
Saturday morning at 8 am we made the long, winding journey from Novafeltria to Rome; our time with La Musica Lirica was officially over. I spent two days in Rome cherishing the time I had left with my new friends. The traffic in Rome was ridiculous due to the number of Vespa drivers on the road. In Rome, we made sure to see the average tourist sites, such as the Coliseum and Trevi Fountain.
The Trevi Fountain, one of the only sites I wanted to see, was sadly under construction. I found Rome rather difficult to navigate, but eventually got to each destination. Monday Morning I made my way to Leonardo Da Vinci Airport for my final flight home. I thought I would never find a more confusing airport than Charles DeGaulle in Paris but I was terribly wrong. Despite much confusion, Monday afternoon I made it to Philadelphia Airport. I’m happy to be home but also going to miss Italy terribly.
