Last night we had our first rehearsal — with all the principals and some of the understudies. It was nice to start things off with a small-scale, low-key, no-pressure rehearsal. We talked a bit about the set and costume designs and the general concept for the production. Then we read through all the scenes and discussed ways to approach both text and character. And we finished the evening by gently singing through solo and small ensemble selections.
We have assembled a fantastic cast and I’m excited to watch their work develop and blossom in the coming months.
