Tonight we staged "From the Sunny Spanish Shore" and "In Enterprise of Martial Kind." This was the first rehearsal I’d had with the Duke, Duchess, Casilda and Luiz; so it was good to work with them and to finally get them in on the action. Among the choreographic delights we discovered were a drunken grapevine; a staggering box step; a sideways march, the heave; and a delightful little movement sequence called the croquet. We then read through their first scene and explored some vocal placements and speech patterns. Great work and an extremely good introduction of the characters.
