Der Rosenkavalier Piano Dress Rehearsal
Long, long rehearsal yesterday. First time in our costumes. I have three costumes and three wigs for three different acts. Here I am as a late 18th-century Police Officer with fake mustachio and powdered wig. Better pics to come!
It's all been fun, but I have the Prop From Hell in the first act that I have to wrestle with-- three rolls of fabric that I have to unfurl and present quickly to the rich Marschallin aristocrat-lady in my role as Fabric Vendor. I have not found a way for it to not be awkward. I am doing my best, having to accept imperfection. Oy oy oy!
The production is unbelievably lavish. Great fun to be a part of-- shimmering period costumes and sets.
I'll post again when there are more (and better) photos to share, for whoever is still checking this blog out.
