Tech week for The Light in the Piazza is well underway - the first full run through (with lights, sets, costumes, music, etc.) is tonight! One of my favorite things about The Light in the Piazza is the music. To put it simply, it's gorgeous. I spoke to Max Grossman, one of our Assistant Conductors, about the experience of working on Piazza (especially its music), and here's what he had to say:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx66tgH1tLA&feature=channel_video_title
By the way, other than a sitzprobe (sing-through) last week, tonight's run through will be the first time the cast will perform the show with a full orchestra. Up until now, they've worked with only a piano, and this orchestra is no small matter - it has a full string section and even a bassoon. Tonight's rehearsal is guaranteed to be an amazing experience, and I'm looking forward to hearing the complete sound of the show.
