Madeleine Monday: La Diva

Madeleine Queen of the Night

We still wonder what it is we have on our hands. Not only does she want to see a video of the Queen of the Night's aria from The Magic Flute over and over, but now she wants to perform along with it. Her attempts to hit those staccato high notes are funny. And at the end, sure, she deserves to give herself a hand.

I had her out in my car for a while yesterday. From back in her car seat she calls out "opa!", meaning she wants the opera channel on satellite radio. The Metropolitan Opera was just beginning to play Götterdämmerung. She was cool with it. I'm sure she will pick up pop music when she gets to school ('cause she ain't gonna get it here).

Girls her age loving opera are rare!

How fascinating to see/hear her react to the aria. The start of a career for sure. I hope her parents give her a chance to start singing early.

She has to keep moving because she can't contain herself -- this is real enjoyment. Thanks!
