I’ve just bought a new computer, so I will be hard at work getting the DVDs and CDs for the 2007 Workshop produced. I have complete videos of Magic Flute (both casts) and Cesare (Starboard cast) — unfortunately I only have a partial tape for Cesare’s Port cast (it’s missing the last 30 minutes — and I’m very sorry about this) but I have complete sound recordings for everyone.
I’ll be producing these on my new iMac … I am a happy, happy girl!
I’m in the process of redesigning the HSOW website using several content management systems: namely WordPress for the body of the site and Drupal for the bios (which are now considerable!)
I also want to make this site a better hub for sharing photos, sound clips, video and information among the participants in the workshop, past, present and future.
We do have a Facebook group, so if you’re on Facebook, check us out!
Tara and Nina would like to thank all the participants in HSOW 2007 for their hard work, creativity, patience and talent. We had a phenomenally successful season by any standards! The expansion of the program to two shows worked very well, all things considered, and we’ll be looking to get your feedback about the program so that we can improve things for next year.
We love all our peeps — have fun this year, wherever you go, and remember that we’re rooting for you!
Our first 2007 review is in and it’s very positive. Congratulations to the Starboard cast of Cesare for this great review by Stephen Pedersen of the Halifax Chronicle Herald:
