Day 19 of Bajazet rehearsals

and our last day in our lovely St Leonards studio. Today we did the studio run - the whole work from start to finish, with a fair amount of the costumes, and mostly without stopping. And extremely well it went. We were joined today by three members of Orchestra of the Antipodes - Matthew Greco who is leading, Anthea Cottee playing principal cello, and Josep Marti Duran playing theorbo. It was great to have them - it added another layer to the whole and it's really coming together. But sad to leave St Leonards which has been a lovely place to rehearse. Tomorrow bump in happens at the City Recital Hall Angel Place, and the first two orchestral calls will be happening. And an extremely well deserved day of rest for our wonderful cast. Here's a great pic of everyone at the end of the studio run today - well done all; great work (and sorry I missed a couple of faces in the pic).
