Back from Brazil

It has been quite a summer of hearing young singers - I just returned from the Inaugural season of the Festival of International Opera of the Americas, where I directed The Tales of Hoffman with two casts of young singers.  It was great to work with young talent who are eager to grow vocally and dramatically.  Certainly producing that opera in two weeks with two casts is challenging, but we got it up and running and they have three more performances.
Even with all the challenges - particularly having multiple assignments in different shows, the singers really came through.....
More observations to come!!
