On Friday night, we had a get together honoring the winners and participants in our Piano Competition. Last year, we did Joplin in coordination with SCOTT JOPLIN AND TREEMONISHA. This year we did Mozart to go with COSI FAN TUTTE. Stephen Carey, our Assistant Artistic Director, pulls this event off with great enthusiasm and dedication.

Today, our Technical Director, Robert New, finished the large step unit and rolled it into the rehearsal room so we could rehearse on it. Our headquarters was always planned for this sort of thing, so it was very exciting.

As you can see in the set model in this earlier post, one of the major parts of the little COSI set is a large set of stairs. Our technical director, Robert New, says these stairs are challenging cause they not square--broader at the bottom than the top.
In our production of COSI FAN TUTTE, it begins with the three men fishing together. The cast happens to have two New Yorkers who don't do much fishing so much comedy ensues as the whole process of fishing is explained. Our Director relates it to the cast like teasing a cat.

Here are some photographs of the model for the set of our upcoming COSI FAN TUTTE. The production is being designed by Edward Morris. You can see that the orchestra is going to be partially visible upstage of the scenery. The stairs and ramp are doubling as an outdoor fishing pier and an indoor staircase.
