As promised here are some excerpts from Connais-tu le pays which was performed at the Meeting House Theatre as part of "An Evening of Duets" in Philadelphia. The song of the same name is an aria from the Opera Mignon, and is being performed with me by opera singer Katie Stevenson. In the song, the main character is singing about her homeland in which she has been taken away from. She sings about the clear lake, the birds, the changing of the seasons. It feels very appropriate to be sharing this with spring right around the corner! Enjoy!
