Simba, you might forgive the writer's mistake when you consider this issue:
Another oddity was the lack of a printed programme. Most patrons like having a programme to keep as a souvenir and if some of the pieces sung were announced by the singers and the titles projected on a screen, in the case of the opera pieces only the titles were projected, never a word as from which work and who composed it.
However, he seemed knowledgeable enough about the rest of the pieces. But he seemed familiar with opera settings, so maybe he just knows those arias already. You'd think he could at least look up anything he doesn't know.
Another thing: He said the only trio was Santa Lucia. I thought they all 3 performed Ave Maria, too. Or maybe they say that because the choir was backing them up? I didn't think a choir counted as a duet, trio, or anything like that. They're just backing, aren't they?
So she sang May it Be & Amazing Grace (nice to see it attributed to John Newton instead of just saying "traditional", for once) too. Hopefully videos of those songs will turn up. And David Foster's The Prayer.
It looks like a new dress, but i have the idea, the picture was taking during the rehearsals.....so what you see is hayley in her "daily " or is it called casual,outfit..... Her hair and make up are definitly not the same, as in pictures of the show.
ok that's hayley without make up, she luks very beautiful even then! What amazing beauty XD
To me, it looks like Hayley has some light 'every day' make up on during those rehearsal photos - rather than her usual heavier stage make up which she wears for her performances. But no doubt, Hayley has very beautiful skin. Wish I knew her secret! Good genes, I suspect!
Also, the light blue dress was also worn by Hayley to An Audience with Michael Buble.
Incidentally, Princess Eugenie (daughter of Prince Andrew) also owns the same dress.
