Day 9 of Pinchgut's Bajazet rehearsals

and another good day finished with an incredibly beautiful double rainbow and glorious sunset over a rain-washed Sydney. We've now staged up to Act 2 scene 7, and done some great emotional moments today - outrage from Tamerlano, and gorgeous arias from Asteria and Irene. Elsewhere everything is really, really, really busy. Set and props are coming along beautifully, costumes are looking great, the program material is almost together and we're less than two weeks away from the orchestra starting! Tomorrow marks the half way point in the rehearsal period before going to the City Recital Hall. Amazing! Here's a great pic taken by Bridget Elliot of Andronico (Russell Harcourt) and Irene (Helen Sherman) discussing disguises and spying in general!
