Gratitude - Day 62

I'm grateful to finally be on the stage of the Civic Opera Theater rehearsing. The move from the rehearsal room to the stage is always an exciting one: we get to test the acoustics of the hall firsthand, feel how the space on the set feels looking out into the enormous house, we have the actual set pieces around us, the chorus joins us, and it means opening night is getting a bit closer. It also gives an amateur photo-nut (me) the opportunity to roam the theater freely and capture a few of the details that make this theater so beautiful! I love those perks!

After the sitz, I think the first stage rehearsal has always been my favorite, especially at Lyric. I remember the first time I stepped onto that stage and looked out at the house- it was one of the best moments of my life, I think. I did a second show there this season, and it still took my breath away every single night. Incredible.

Glad you're enjoying Chicago (although today's weather might be enough to change your mind...)
