Meeting Maria

So I had a pretty wicked evening. Me & Joonas went to a restaurant called Allotria to see Maria Ylipää & Anna-Mari Kähärä performing L. Onerva's poems. The gig was AMAZING. The poems were beautiful, Anna-Mari's compositions fitted the poems perfectly and Maria... Her voice was filled with pure magic.

After the show I decided to be a fangirl and went to talk with Maria. She is such a sweetheart and it was lovely to meet her!

I'm so happy I could melt

Flight of the magic wand

Yesterday I saw Wicked for the 4th time. Yes, it was once again AMAZING! I still adore Maria Ylipää  (Elphaba) & Anna-Maija Tuokko (Glinda) soooo much... <3

And the funniest thing happened:

Glinda / Anna-Maija was swaying her magic wand during "the catfight scene".

*swoosh swoosh*

Suddenly the wand slipped off from her hand and flew straight into the orchestra pit. Anna-Maija & Maria totally cracked up and the audience started to laugh & cheer loudly. Soon Anna-Maija got her wand back and tried the swaying again.

*swoosh swoosh, without the sound effects*

Anna-Maija: "With the sound effects, please." *grin*

*swoosh swoosh, with the sound effects*

Anna-Maija curtseyed with a smiling face and the audience cheered even louder.

So. Freakin'. Epic.
