THE PROCESS OF BECOMING

All the incremental steps, the work of so many behind the scenes, over month, even years…
All that it takes to bring such an exclusive Opera event to life…

First Notes

From when Ondrej first discovers a long-lost score in the deep Vaults of European Archives, and then copies it by hand, reconstructs missing or unintelligible fragments to their authentic original glory…

Sticking Heads together

To when the performers first become involved, begin to study the notes, the phrasing, intonation, characterization, and parallel engage with Susanna in the essential, painstakingly precise work on the gestures typical for the performances of the historic period…

Props and Costumes

The Props and Costumes are being brought from storage, prepped, and primed by expert hands for the Performance of the season, each piece dedicated thoughtfully to its role in the story…

Musicians

The Musicians arrive and gather for the first joint rehearsals. First alone with Ondrej, and then developing the scenes together with the singers, ever more integrated, until…

And finally…

Here it must come together to be shared with the passionate expert audiences. Here for an exclusive 3 Night run a select few may enjoy the New World Premiere of a rediscovered Masterpiece.
