As my internship comes to an end, the hours tick down for the Troubadours premier. The last two days we had our orchestra rehearsal and the last general rehearsal, where a few members from the press where invited to have a sneak peek of the production. It’s all finally come together and running smoothly, the only unpredictable factor being the weather. Last night general rehearsal had to have the final scene cut due to a storm rolling in. But in the theatre world everyone says that if a lot goes wrong during the final rehearsal than the premier will run all the more smoothly. The final session of feedback took place under one of the tents as we all waited out the rain and now the production is out of the hands of the director and will continue on its own like a baby taking its first steps by itself.
Over the past few weeks I’ve learnt so much about theatre in Germany and opera in general and will always be grateful for this opportunity. I’m so happy I was able to be a part of the whole process and even though I’m off to do some travelling around Europe now I can’t wait to find my way back to theatre scene and of course the stage.
