I know I've been posting a lot . It's because I'm on "vaycay" and my only daily task is memorzing Lakme- THEN looking at new arias, roles for next year, upcoming concert works.
But I had to post this: I just typed out all of the libretto of Lakme's part- including repeated parts of duets and arias. It's 5 pages single spaced.
I cheated about 6 times by looking at the score- only for a FEW words in a FEW recits.
