April 14 - Clouds Disperse Judgement
Finish the orchestration of Solomon: VI. What Would You Like Me to Give to You before heading out for the tech rehearsal of Dioclesian/Dioclesian, as the skies clear over the Sulfur Springs Mountains, past the American Canyon / Vallejo Divide.
And it's all becoming clearer in the practice, marking towards perfect for Purcell (in the three wars
of the Drama [featuring Harriet March Page's wonderous direction and amazing costuming, plus Kadar's magnificent lights], and
the Masque for serious
Alburger (from I: First Paragraph Music [with Maria Mikheyenko as Edward Gibbon],
through III. Happy Funeral
the isolated-lonely pathos of
IV. What Shall I Do
[with Kimberly Anderman as Drusilla]
a fire-breathing V. Speak, Flame
["Great Diocletian" from Alexandra Jerinic's titular character] to
the solemnity of VI. Country Dance). Begin instrumentation of
This Woman after the late-night commute.
