Antony McDonald’s production of Ariadne auf Naxos has had it’s Glasgow run and heads to Edinburgh next week. I’ve been kept busy with tech rehearsals, cover rehearsals, second cast rehearsals and accessible performances but have enjoyed working on this production at every point of the process.
It makes everyone’s job much easier when you have a fantastic team around you - not only of highly skilled and experienced singers, but stage managers and crew and the company at large that make a show successful. It’s has been a pleasure to call Glasgow my home for the past two months and I’m sure we won’t be apart for long. The food, people and Scottish culture and dancing have stolen my time and heart and I look forward to coming back.
After the tour to Edinburgh I’ll begin rehearsals for my production of Sweeney Todd with Slaithwaite Philharmonic Orchestra which runs in Huddersfield on the 30th June and 1st July 2018. It will be a community project with a mixture of professional and non-professional singers, physical theatre and movement with set design by Jonny Dixon.
After that it’s a summer in Aix-de- Province with Katie Mitchell, returning to the beautiful Opera Holland Park with Ariadne, Garsington with a new opera for their education department and then to Italy to round it all off!
