Keep calm and Parto

One of my nightmares is the private number call which goes like this:

Workplace: Guess what? You’re working today!
Me: What?! I have only planned this day off since bloody February!
Workplace: Says here you’re working.
Me: But I’ve done three nights this week and I’m working tomorrow.
Workplace: Dunno, says here’s you’re working.
Me: But I don’t owe any hours!
Workplace: You’re working today.
Me: asfdsjfhsdkghkfjgkfdjhkh234735

Deep breath and Parto. I’m not going 😉

…but Parto is indeed my go-to aria for when shit like this happens. On top of the weather. Yep, Summer’s gone. We’ve weather again in London. In this week: Cencic is too expensive, Giannatassio’s ill, Gerhaher is sold out and I just missed Sandrine Piau. I need a clarinet flourish. At least I AM seeing Poppea, screw you, messed up work rota (which, if I had been doing it (as rumoured), wouldn’t be messed up in the first place, but that’s another story that’s not happening). Where’s the repeat button?

  2. My aria for such situations is “Crude furie degl’ orridi abissi” from Handel’s Serse. (The bit about spitting venom gets me every time)
