We had our final dress last night, which went very well. We should have an extraordinary opening tomorrow night.
We always work to try to build casts that are not only talented, but also cooperative. This may have been one of the best yet. It is thoroughly remarkable that artists with such demanding roles such as Turandot (Audrey Stottler) and Calaf (Roy Smith) can also be not just decent human beings, but warm, collegial, and just plain fun!
Tomorrow night is also our after-opera Lord T. and Eloise experiment. We plan to have a video up on U-Tube as quickly as possible, perhaps as early as Monday.
