Music Rehearsals for The Queen of Spades

A little over a week ago we started music rehearsals for Queen of Spades, Houston Grand Opera’s exciting spring production, opening April 16. The last opera I did with HGO was CHORUS! -- a production created for our chorus and an amazing personal and artistic experience. It has been about a year since I have sat in the Big Circle on the 6th floor of The Wortham, working through giant operatic choral pieces with some of Houston’s finest singers -- with the music emerging under the outrageous musical and artistic skill of Maestro Richard Bado.

The yards of tongue twisting Russian finally begin to sink in - with strands of music running through my head … ah, sweet memorization!

I’ll be the official blogging chorister for HGO during The Queen of Spades production. Lots of pics and fun to follow. There’s puppets in this show, so watch out!
