Act 2 - opening
We focused on pages 43 - 48. This material is fairly similar to sections of Act 1 and we did really well at getting to grips with it. Now we just need to consolidate. (And learn the rest of the act!)
Act 2 - end of large choral section (p.61)
We finished off the first half of the rehearsal by looking at the finale section on p.61-63 again - going over the lines, and making sure we have the 'sping' of gasping in the right place!! (see below)
Act 1 - opening up to fig. 9
After break, we went back to the very beginning, seeing what we could remember from the very opening of Act 1, and then going over figure 2 again. We need to work on getting into this section, and the final few bars before figure 3. We then sang through from figure 3 - figure 9.
To end the session, Lissa did some work on singing in a more spread out way, and moving to try and find people in our little groups. Was sounding fab!
See you all on Wednesday!
