Again today Anne and I stepped in as ninja’s again for the death walk as I now call it.
The music, which is constantly stuck in my head, has a great slow pulse that Ines and Leonora’s ninjas walk in time to. As far as I can tell, Ines is completely infatuated with Leonora. It’s an interesting side story that has quite a comic moment before the ‘death walk’ where Ines loudly sobs and cries about the whole ordeal.
As each of the main characters has been cast twice, it’s really interesting to be able to watch how each singer interprets their role. Weber (the director) has also made the choice to let the singers perform with each of the alternative singers. This I think is to see which combination of soloists has the better chemistry on stage before choosing who is to perform on which nights.
