We are having a lovely time rehearsing for Amahl and the Night Visitors! I first encountered this charming opera as a young woman back in Unionville, Ontario, when I was in my church’s production of it. My husband was the Page, and our cockatiel had a starring role as the parrot!
Having a chance to direct it, about thirty years later, is such a privilege. We have an outstanding local cast and the most enthusiastic chorus of shepherds imaginable 🙂 We also have a REAL parrot, Nigel, an African Grey, who simply radiates star quality …
More soon, including photos of the stunning costumes by Anne Morison!
