Sitz in the rehearsal room

Giovanni Sitzprobe, this time not in the theatre, but in the rehearsal room. It’s a trade-off. The Sitz in the theatre gives us an extra rehearsal to acclimate to the performance space, but it brings with it the typical difficulties in pit-to-stage coordination. A Sitz in the rehearsal room is more luxurious on a purely musical level; it actually allows the players to hear the singers, and, if it all works as it should, all parties come away from it with a greater understanding of the whole. Didn’t quite get through the show, though, in spite of marvelously efficient work by our conductor.
