If you look closely, this is a recipe for Long Island Iced Tea... in Italian. A prop for "Suor Angelica". PG, our props guy, has some great attention to detail.
Sunrise over the Chugach Mountains in our last day in the rehearsal space.
Our first day in the theatre - behold the tent for Pagliacci.
Happy Halloween - my halloween was spent in 6 hours of spacing/tech rehearsals. Wheeee. My costume? Red sequined horns.
A backstage view of our sets... the arches from Suor Angelica with the Pagliacci tent in the background. If you look carefully at the photo stats, the photo claims to be taken on Nov 2nd. In fact, it was taken at 11pm Alaska time on Nov 1. Daylight Savings Time cursed me on this particular day, but the photo was taken ON Nov 1st. I haven't missed a day yet.
I lent a hand in the costume shop and this is what I got to stare at while sewing patches on clown suit.
This was the sitzprobe day, which is also known as the first orchestra rehearsal WITH singers, on the stage. Usually, they just sit in chairs, but not for this one. They were on their feet, all the time. Since these are active shows, with offstage singing, wandering around was what was needed. This is the harp, played by the harpist who also happens to be a nun in Suor Angelica. No kidding. Talk about multi-talented.
