LAURENCE CUMMINGS, Conductor for Messiah
As an opera conductor it is always a very exciting moment to move into the theatre from the often cramped rehearsal studio and it is especially so in this production which has such a huge cast! The Community ensemble is bringing a really exciting extra dimension to our production and now we have the full depth of the stage it is really highlighting what an enormous impact you are all making. We have just rehearsed the ‘darkness’ sleeping moment and it is already so moving. Keep up the good work!
Now I can’t wait for the orchestra to arrive tomorrow and we start the final process of putting it altogether. How exciting!
