The Magic Dream – Rehearsal Day 1 from LA Opera on Vimeo.
The Magic Dream
There’s really nothing cooler than bypassing the towering glass facade of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, curving around towards the underbelly of the Music Center, and turning into the unassuming doors that are the artists’ entrance of LA Opera.
This is the big time.
In the room next door, Maestro Conlon is conducting the first sing-through of the upcoming Recovered Voices project. You get the sense of being part of something really big, really exciting.
And then the fist sing-through starts, and you finally get to hear what were, until now, imagined voices in your head. You’re part of a team with a common cause – the music!
Staging has already begun, and I can tell you now, this is a seriously talented – and seriously goofy – group of artists.
This is going to be fun.
