Back from our summer break and straight into rehearsals. Luckily enough this weeks rehearsals are still in theatre and not on the Domplatz as its been raining without end.
With the room full to the brim with people, we worked through the whole production from start to finish. This is what I’d been waiting for, because this is when you finally start to see the piece come together and begin to have a sense of its flow. To add to all the other people already on the stage, we also had two press people join us to film parts of the rehearsal. Weber made sure to mention that the clips were recorded without sound to reassure the singers that nothing from the production is heard until the premier on the 10th of August.
As for the life of an opera ninja, I now get thrown around even more than before but luckily our stunt guys really know what they’re doing so I know I’m in good hands.
I also had my first appointment with the makeup department to be fitted for my wig.
Naturally none of the wigs they had on hand fit me as I seem to have a very small head, but I was told not to worry and that by the time I have to be on stage everything will fit perfectly.
Every night our rehearsal room seems to fill with more people as we rehearse larger sections of the production and even though it gets very hot very quickly with so much body heat the show is only getting better and more exciting.
