Tonight we staged the Act II Finale. It’s about ten minutes long and has most of the cast on stage most of the time. So this rehearsal was mostly about getting bodies arranged in space and learning traffic patterns and the cues for movement. Once all that was set, we were able to run the finale three or four times and will continue to add elements to it as we work over the remaining few weeks. Now everything is staged (except "Free From His Fetters" and that pesky overture) and we can focus on tightening things up; adding flourishes here and there; and moving ever closer toward perfection.
