Behind-The-Scene, Voice of San Diego's excellent Arts blog, has been continuing their series on what it takes to present live grand opera.
Their most recent segment focuses on what we do when there is a last minute cast change. No, we don't run around screaming bloody murder; although that might be fun to try one day. We're actually all quite calm and you can read about it here.
More segments are coming including a look at lighting Faust. And, since it is called Countdown to Curtain, we'll have them backstage as the curtain rises on Saturday.
So go visit Behind-The-Scene. Not only does it have a bunch of stories about us (with excellent photos) it's filled with other Arts news you should know about.
