One month ago, Deutsche Oper Berlin exclaimed hail to the queen, when Liv Redpath made her role debut as Marguerite de Valois aka La Reine Margot. Enjoy my review and let me know your opinions as well.
Behold! My greatest highlight during my Bordeaux trip was meeting the ever-stunning, ever-fabulous, and phenomenal Jessica Pratt. She definitely sang up a magnificent storm at the Opéra National de Bordeaux from the clockwork acrobatics of Olympia to Antonia’s yearningly painful virtuosity to Giulietta’s sinuous sensuality and style to Stella’s superb acting chops, thus proving herself to be the complete package. Moreover, she is very well-known for her interpretations of Lucia Ashton from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Elvira Valton from Bellini’s I Puritani, Amina from Bellini’s La Sonnambula, Rossini’s Semiramide and Mathilde from Guillaume Tell, Gilda from Verdi’s Rigoletto, the Queen of the Night from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, and Violetta from Verdi’s La Traviata. Here is to more years of awesomeness, beauty, and greatness to the fabulous Jessica Pratt. Cheers!
Taking up Violetta’s finely-laced mantle was a young, lithe, sleek soprano who has gained some fame around Europe, Zuzana Marková. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen, Antoni here. Goodness. It’s two more days until I turn 27 years old. I currently have 726 YouTube subscribers, 126 DeviantArt watchers, and 1709 followers on Steemit.

Greetings, friends, fans, and viewers, Antoni here. I know I cannot get over the fact that I have just had my one-year anniversary in this place called DeviantArt, which I can easily consider it to be my Mecca for posting fanart and memes from my favorite fandoms. However, throughout this year, I have also been doing a bit of introspection because I would never want to have any drama on this site that I have visited ever since I was only fourteen and then decided to join a week before I turned 26 years old. Now that I will turn 27 in five days time, I want to take the time attempt to make this reflection in prose form in the best way I can. How blessed I am To be surrounded by brilliant, young, creative minds To know that we have things in common To know that, in spite of our differences, we can be great friends To gain inspiration, experience, and knowledge. And it is all thanks to you, My fellow artists who have inspired me through your works My watchers who have supported me and put up with me My good artist friends who I consider to be family, For you have given me every valid reason To wake up every morning with positivity To feel driven to draw something out of the depths of my mind To draw the shippings I support the most To acknowledge how much effort you all put in your works And to feel just as driven, determined, and passionate to emulate the quality you put in. For that, I am eternally grateful. In spite of my overall euphoria and bliss, I know that there are some things that I have done wrong For that, I have to swallow my pride and acknowledge them. I am sorry for all the times I acted annoying. I am sorry for all the times I shove both of my negative and positive opinions on others’ throats. I am sorry for all the delays I could have and could not have controlled. I am sorry if I showed intolerance to others’ ships, fandoms, and the like. I am sorry if I pissed any of you off for something or everything I did wrong. I am sorry for all of the misunderstandings that have occurred. I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me So that we can all start anew Put the past behind us all And, most importantly, live and let live. I am not doing this for acclaim. I am not doing this in the hopes that everyone here on DA will like me. I know that there are those who probably cannot stand me. I am aware that there are those who find me irritating. And, don’t worry, I acknowledge it. I may not be here to please everybody But I am here to be one of the very people who can make DA better. It is true that there are a lot of times that DeviantArt can be full of unnecessary drama. All for what? Not taking criticism well and in a more professional manner? Ripping off from other people’s works? Fueling the flames to make internet drama just as highly witnessed as a soap opera? At the end of the day, I would never want to be that type of person. I detest being that type of person who is classified as a ripoff. I never want to fuel unnecessary flames for the sake of internet drama. More importantly, I never want to whine about criticism Because I can and have to take the heat. I need to be that type of person who ensures unity on DA. I need to ensure that the positives of being on DA can surely outweigh the negatives. I need to show a lot more tolerance, especially when it comes to shipping. I never want to show toxicity to anyone Because the world has enough crap and needs a lot more healing than it already has. More than anything, I want and need to make sure that the stuff I make, whether fanart, meme or journal entry, Can show what and who I am as a person and not sugarcoat nor upset anyone. Through my fanart, I want to keep showing my appreciation to all of you, wonderful artists. You have kept me alive, well, and entertained even in my down days. I also consider doing fanart, memes, and journal entries on DA very therapeutic, As it can make my mind travel to places unknown, Explore many different tastes And, most of all, enjoy the ride doing so. I wrap this up by having this to say. Regardless of who you are, Fellow artist Fellow writer Fan Friend Greatest sources of inspiration, You are all golden and brilliant in your own ways. Continue to be the best versions of yourselves. I bless you all and take care. Once again, I thank you all, my dear friends, fans, and fellow artists for making my time on DeviantArt great. For those who I have badly hurt, I am sorry and I hope you find it in your hearts to forgive me. Take care, have a good spring, and let’s continue to make DeviantArt a great place to express ourselves. https://www.deviantart.com/antonimatteogarcia
This piece of Blossoomer and Blossoomer fan children fan art, which is part of BrickercupMasterX3’s annual Blossoomer month, is dedicated to Zuzanna aka niziolek and Alex aka SportyArtist who are celebrating their birthdays today. So, I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, fortune, beauty, strength, abundance, and prosperity on your very special day as well as in your lives as artists and as people. This is also dedicated to all of the Blossoomer shippers and, as you can tell, this is in honor of the Chinese New Year, more specifically with 2019 being the Year of the Pig. So, Happy Chinese New Year or Kung Hei Fat Choi to you all, sit back, relax, and soak in that Blossoomer goodness. Here we have 26 going on 27-year-old Boomer, his 25 going on 26-year-old life partner Blossom, and their beloved 7 going on 8-year-old sextuplets Bloom, Brittney Jane aka BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Bella Donna aka Belladonna celebrating their Chinese New Year in style. Boomer is dressed as a traditional Chinese martial artist, as he gets to expose his glorious upper body for his beloved Blossom and his children to see. Blossom is dressed as a beautiful Chinese noblewoman and, therefore, looks as elegant as ever. Bloom and BJ are also dressed as Chinese noblewomen. Beau and Brian are dressed akin to Chinese noblemen of the court. Finally, Becky and Belladonna are dressed as Shaolin Kung Fu fighter girls. This should come off as no surprise that Blossom’s affiliation with the Chinese language, more specifically Cantonese, has been ingrained with her since childhood and, therefore, loves exploring Eastern culture and tradition. Hence, every Chinese New Year, she and Boomer would be dressed to the nines in their attires with their children following suit. It also helps that Bloom, BJ, Beau, Brian, Becky, and Belladonna are very diligent when it comes to studying both Cantonese and Mandarin as well as Chinese culture, history, lifestyle, and tradition in general. I hope you all enjoyed this piece of Blossoomer fan art and from me, my family, and my friends to yours, have a most prosperous, awesome, and blessed Chinese New Year. Take care, everybody. Boomer and Blossom from The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network. Bloom, Brittney, and Becky belong to KatyGorl. Beau, Brian, and Bella belong to Misse-the-cat and KatyGorl.
This piece of Zane fanart, which is part of my art trade with my very good friend and sister from another mother Dolo aka PowerpuffObsessed, is dedicated to the one and only Zane aka ZaneRowdyruff who celebrated his birthday yesterday. So, Zane, I hope you had a wonderful, grand, and exquisite birthday. I wish you a lot of love, joy, happiness, abundance, and beauty in everything you do as an artist and as a person. Como se dice en español, espero que tu hayas tenido un maravilloso, grande y exquisito cumpleaños. Te deseo much amor, felicidad, abunancia y belleza en todo que tú haces como artista y persona. I have to say that enjoy making Zane’s OC Zane the Rowdyruff Boy because of how I had to make sure that I got the right characterization, attitude, stance, and everything about him that makes him awesome and fun. I figure that he would make a nice addition to my Team Xtreme universe as one of Brick’s, Butch’s, Bommer’s, Blossom’s, Buttercup’s, and Bubbles’ greatest ally of all time. Since he is fifteen years old and Brick, Butch, and Boomer are twenty-six years old, Blossom and Buttercup are twenty-five years old, and Bubbles is twenty-four years old, I think he would make a nice apprentice to them and he would look up to them as his greatest sources of inspiration, thus giving them a lot of respect and admiration and the team respecting him back in virtue of his extraordinary powers that while in the process of development shows exceptional promise. So, Zane, I hope you like my idea for your OC in my Rowdyruff x Powerpuff Headcanon. Happy Holidays and I will see you on the flipside, man. The Powerpuff Girls belong to Craig McCracken and Cartoon Network. Zane belongs to ZaneRowdyruff.
After her 38-year-old Deutsche Oper Berlin debut as Lucia Ashton from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Signora Gruberova’s stint at this very opera house goes out with a bang with this farewell concert and along the way are more roads less traveled for this diva who is still going very strong. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
