I’ve started working on the page for HSOW 2007, which includes the poster, lists of the cast members and creative teams, links to the reviews we received and the beginnings of a new photo gallery just for Zauberflote/Giulio Cesare.
I just finished bringing the bios up to date for 2007 participants — you can check them out on our HSOW Bio Pages. (That’s Francesca Perez’s gorgeous self up there — she was one of our Third Ladies last year …)
If you’re a HSOW participant you can edit your bio or photo at any time — just register as a user and then reply to the email that the system will send you. Then you’ll be able to go into your bio and upload a new photo or edit the text.
(If you need any help, just drop me a line)
We’ve just had a great review of the 2007 operas, Giulio Cesare in Egitto and Die Zauberflote, in Canada’s national opera magazine, Opera Canada. If you’d like to read the review, you can find it on this page.
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!
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!
