Magic Flute underway

This is the first week of production rehearsals for RAO's The Magic Flute, directed by Stephen Barlow. As assistant conductor it is a rare privilege to get to conduct the first week-and-a-bit of production, but as Jane Glover is in America, that's how it works this time! It's a fascinating stage in the procedure, as we unpick the music and characters, and lay the foundation stones for the show. Stephen's 1980s New York setting is brilliant and is going to make this a lot of fun!
