Opera schedule this week: LAST MINUTE CHANGE

Cindy's son is sick: please note the changes I've made to today's schedule. Some of you scheduled for Thursday are now singing TODAY! Thursday's schedule is also adjusted.

Character sketches are due one week from today. Click here for the link to the sheet: it is also under "Syllabi and Handouts" on the right side of the blog. Copy/save and complete it, using the score as your guide. There are many answers to character questions that are included in the (complete) opera score/libretto; if the information is nowhere to be found, you are then encouraged to invent your answers if you can back them up. Do one character sketch per role: if you are singing in three scenes, you must complete three sheets. To receive credit, email them to me no later than 3:30 pm on Tuesday, 2/23.

Following is the schedule for the remaining musical rehearsals this week and next. You'll note that we'll finish musical rehearsals on the 23rd, slightly later than planned. This is due to the slow pace of musical preparation. Do what you must to get where you need to be by then!

Staging rehearsals must be memorized. You will be allowed to carry your score only to make notes; you'll then be expected to put down the music and go for it.
