Lend Me A Tenor

But Can He Sing For His Supper?

A student opera singer from the Cardiff International Academy of Voice telephoned for a last-minute concert ticket and was instead offered a lead role. Adriano Graziani, 32, was asked if he would stand in for the tenor who had fallen ill with a cold. He had less than two hours to get to the venue for a last -minute rehearsal.

FOOTNOTE: Rock ‘n’ role.

That is actually a reoccuring nightmare I have. I am supposed to do a show but I never had a chance to look at the lines or rehearse the staging.
I hate that dream.

Well I am certainly glad I didn't telephone for a ticket that night.
If they'd have asked me,I would have cleared the hall in less than a minute! LOL
