Behind The Scenes

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

I don’t know the answer to that ever-philosophical question,
but I can tell you that if your opera includes a fight sequence, and you therefore
find yourself chatting not only to The Director, but also with the specialist “Fight
Director”, you will suddenly realise that you are in Germany… and just how
seriously opera is treated in over here.

I think that there are only about two or three of the Anya17 cast “in shot” in this photo. All the
essential others you can see are from the Ensemble, Lighting, Costume Design, Prompting,
Props, Set Design, Choreography, Audio, Video, Hair, Makeup, etc. etc. – you name it.

It’s a different world over here!

Only hours to go before the premiere now…
