Why hurry over beautiful things? Why not linger and enjoy them? ~Clara Schumann

Dear Opera Fan Neighbor (from upstairs),
After hearing the horrible stories from my singer colleagues about neighbors complaining about their practicing in their own apartments, I knew I was so lucky that when I moved in, I heard you singing and playing the piano…not only that, but it was on a Sunday, a Ruhetag (a quiet day in Austria, under law)! I knew at that moment that we would get along great!
I appreciated you jumping in on the piano to accompany me when I was singing Ah! non credea mirarti from La sonnambula; it was a nice little duet we had through the ceiling! I especially enjoyed your rehearsal today when I heard you singing your favorites all in falsetto: Casta Diva (soprano aria) from Norma, Ol’ Man River (bass aria) from Showboat and Ah! mes amis (tenor aria) from La fille du régiment…it really brought a smile to my face! Although I have never met you, through the ceiling, I love the passion I hear that you have for opera and I am very happy to have you as my neighbor!
