The Giulio Cesare cast and crew survived tech week in style and are enjoying a day to catch their breath before opening night. It’s a wonderful show, meticulously crafted and beautifully sung. I’m particularly proud of the fearless way this cast has embraced the challenge. This music is naturally attractive and virtuosic, but it only becomes truly meaningful when approached with commitment and courage. These people are “all in,” as they say, and we are the luckier for it.
A bit of good news for those of you who have been asking me where the other podcasts are… Act II is up and running on the podcast page. Not sure if Act III will make it before closing night, but I haven’t lost hope. I adore talking about this music and sharing it with you, but the days have been overflowing and the poor podcasts have been edged out :)
On a lighter note, please enjoy this little video, made by our Technical Director and crew, with the help of Google Glass. (Rome wasn’t built in a day, but obviously, Alexandria was.)
