Yesterday morning, the singers had their first experience singing in the swanky KKL Auditorium – an interior awash in white and natural wood tones with pretty wonderful acoustics. Unfortunately, due to the huge size of the whole production and limited rehearsal time the Singers will perform the work from their version of the “Choral Benches” similar to our own Disney Hall. However, with creativity and flexibility, Peter Sellars, Grant and the Singers are able to pretty much replicate the entire staging that occurred on the flat stages of the Disney Hall and Barbican into the modified staging of the seats in the KKL.
Here are a few shots from that rehearsal in the KKL, courtesy to the KKL. We are looking forward to the performance this evening!
