Miss Zinnia Sings At The Roman Forum In Sagunto, Spain

Miss Zinnia often sings in ancient basilicas.  However, in Sagunto, Spain, on a quiet afternoon in March, she sings in an ancient, Roman forum, a stone theater hewn into the hillside to which it has clung since the first century.

Partially restored, the forum has truly mindblowing acoustics, making it more like a church than an outdoor theater.  Those Romans, right?  Wish I could personally thank the handy set who designed the venue that made Miss Z’s voice reverberate so hauntingly.  Be cool, wouldn’t it?–if a Mom could say to the architects of such a place, “A girl’s voice endures because the thing you made endures.  Nicely done.”

(In the photograph on the link, the forum is in the lower left corner.)

She has the voice of an angel. Surely takes after her Momma, both in voice and beauty.
Enjoy your adventure in Spain. Loving your blog.
Hugs and besitos,

So wild that it was outside, no? With acoustics like that? I’m thinking I need to shoot a note to her voice teacher, so he can hear the fruits of his happy efforts. xx

And I will tell her straightway what her Uncle D said! You are too kind. (But you’re right.)
