Self-proclaimed “former picky eater” Erin Kiernan has been trying every new food that has been offered in Spain. Knowing she had a newfound adventurous streak, I thought I could coax her onto the stage of El Teatro Romano in Mérida to share a song. It did indeed take a wee bit of nudging, but she shared a song from Phantom of the Opera.
Construction on El Teatro Romano, an ancient outdoor theater, began well over 2,000 years ago. It is now home to the annual Festival of Classical Theatre. You are in good company Erin! Did actors in 16BC use their cell phones as teleprompters as well?
