and we have staged through to the end. And a very powerful end it is too. No spoilers though. A great day in the studio and wonderful now to see the whole arc of the piece.

Here's a pic of happy (and relieved) smiles from three very important people in the rehearsal room - Erin Helyard (conductor), Thomas de Mallet Burgess (director) and Tanya Leach (stage manager).
