Day 13 of Bajazet rehearsals

and the start of a new week, and the last week before we go to Angel Place! It's getting so close. Part of what is being done while rehearsals are happening is sourcing or making all the props that will be used in the show. One of the more unusual props is pictured here. A ruined piano was requested, and our friends at Theme & Variations Piano Services came through with this beautiful partial keyboard and hammers from a Steinway that was indeed ruined in the recent Brisbane floods. It's a beautiful thing even in it's destroyed state, and we are very grateful for the loan. Our newly Helpmann-nominated Erin Helyard is examining it.
