La Sonnambula opens on November 30.
Tina Lanik’s second child was not due until December.
But new babies wait for no-one.
Happily, when Tina went into labour her husband was on hand. He is the stage and costume designer for Sonnambula, Stefan Hagenier.
Bellini’s all round. We hear the new baby’s middle name is Amina, after the opera’s heroine.
