I was so excidted (and nervous!) before we started cover rehearsals because John Adams' music for the Countertenor trio is so difficult! But when we all met in week one I realised we all felt the same way and as a result we were all extremely well prepared...with a little help from Murray.
It has been a great privilege to work on this stage premiere production and be part of something truly unique and special. The music, although difficult, is exceptionally touching and memorable, heightened by Peter Sellars' moving libretto. Opening night was a huge success with well deserved standing ovations for the cast and creative team alike.
I'm looking forward to working at ENO again early next year on their production of Purcell's Indian Queen.
