Così: nearly there!


Today's double-whammy piano dress for Così seemed to go well; both casts are going to be fantastic, and set and costumes look brilliant. Having played every note of the opera twice in a day, once for each cast (no mean feat!), it will be a relief to add orchestra into the equation tomorrow and therefore no longer have to play their role as well as playing recits..  Only have to think about recitative now, and pleased to confirm that we have fortepiano rather than harpsichord for these!
