Six more sleepssss….

P1090578Swansingers! Are we excited?

Final preparation for some intensive swanning about is now underway. Later this week our illustrious composer, Peta Williams, flies into Tullamarine. Margret RoadKnight, too, touches down in Melbourne town. Lisa Maza and Rosie Bray are hard at work on their parts; so too our Eternal Verities, Tracy Bourne, Sue Breedon and Caroline Lee. Costume intern Alice Prowse has been spotted playing with pleats and wiggery. Lighting Designer Rachel Burke has been heard seeking quotes on lengths of swan lake! Robin Laurie is working on her Choreee. Designing woman, Jane Murphy has been pouring out bespoke graphics. Shani Williams and our collective Musical Con-sorts are tuning up. Jo Trevathan is getting ukulele-fied.

This week we put the oratorio together on the floor for the first time. Note to swanself: This  is NOT a rehearsal. It is an intensive exploration in a Bluestone construction zone! Be prepared for hard work.

Come Sunday we throw wide the doors to our “open church” and will present our work-in-progress to the Things That Fall Over faithful. If that’s you, you will find your Swansong invitation here.

Sing it sisters!
