Day 6 of Bajazet rehearsals

and it's been a big week. A great day of rehearsals today. We pushed on to the end of Act 1 scene 7, which encompasses the scene where Asteria finds out that she is to be married to Tamerlano. Very powerful stuff, and incredible music. Then we went back to the beginning and ran from the start up to this point. We're almost finished staging Act 1, with 42 minutes of music already blocked. Looking and sounding wonderful. Congrats all - a great week's work and a very well deserved day off tomorrow. Here's a snap of a lovely moment with Bajazet and Asteria - father and daughter - in a small, peaceful moment, in amongst the destruction of their world.
