5-Star Review: La Bohème at Operamuse

This is the first 5-Star Review! In each 5-Star Review, I list five of my favorite things about a recent or upcoming performance.

In this review, I'll be talking about the opera La Bohème, presented by a group called Operamuse. I saw their performance on Friday night, November 10th, at a lovely home in Bellevue.

Singerreise 5-Star Reviews (056)

Today is the launch of an entirely new venture for Singerreise - the Singerreise 5-Star Review! Let me explain:

While Sarah and I were on a walk earlier this week, we were discussing this weekend's performance of La Bohème at Operamuse. Sarah came up with a great idea for Singerreise - why not go to the performance itself and do a review of it afterward?

Singer Interview: Mike Heitmann (055)

Tonight I had the pleasure of seeing Operamuse's production of La Bohème in person! There's still one more performance, so if you're in the Seattle area, make sure to check it out.

But earlier this week, I interviewed the founder of Operamuse, Mike Heitmann. In this interview, we talk about the challenges of a career in singing, and of the company Operamuse.

Mike Heitmann (upcoming Episode 55)

In a few days, I'll be posting my interview with Michael Heitmann. Make sure to watch for that!

In the meanwhile, I must let you all know that Mike is the head of an organization called OperaMuse.

More Audio?

A new question for all those following Singerreise: I'm considering adding to the audio options for Singerreise by making audio versions of the various episodes. I can't add too much to my work load with the current level of funding, so these literally would be the soundtrack ripped from the videos of the Singerreise Video Podcast.

New perks for patrons!

The following was posted at https://www.patreon.com/posts/15233998 :

As mentioned through the earlier poll, I was considering a change in the reward structure for patrons, such as eliminating the $3 level and changing to $1, $5, $10 and $20 levels. I was also considering leaving the structure the same, but changing the perks associated with the $3 level, since YouTube no longer permits me to monetize my channel.
