Well, apparently it was between me and one other soprano for the role as of yesterday. And today I'm the runner up. Only, since this isn't a competition, I didn't get any 2nd prize winnings, nor can I write runner-up anywhere on my resume.
At least I got realllly positive feedback -- ha.
But again, in the end just wasn't what they chose.
That's kind of what I expected in the first place, and honestly, I'm kind of shocked and flattered at the same time that I *was* even the runner-up.
So- there you go. Maybe next time they have something that's more 'my' repertoire they'll remember and think of me!
