Jess' Unforgettable Classics
By Stage Manager, Jess Nash
First opera I ever worked on 7yrs ago. I still remember the adrenaline, excitement and slight terror I had each night. This overture sums that up for me.
My favourite opera to date. I love it for its drama and moments of stillness. I still get goosebumps when I hear this piece. It’s where I found my love for calling opera, and realising that this is where I belong- with all its bumps and glory.
Reminds me of my grandparents, the unconditional love they have for each other to this date. They are classic and unforgettable.
My dad played the beatles on his record player a lot when I was kid. Blackbird would always stick out for me, and make me stop and listen.
Total 90’s tragic- I saw the Cranberries in an episode of Charmed and I was hooked. I had this song on repeat and would dance and sing a long in my room.
Makes me hopeful and smile- “show some love, you ain’t that tough come fill my little world”
This to me is summer, a blow up pool in the backyard, cold beer and friends.
SONDHEIM! My favourite musical, I play it when I need to search for the positives- a slotted spoon can catch the potato!
