During the last two weeks we have been working intensively in the studio putting Carmina Burana back together. Carmina is probably one of the most challenging pieces in the repertory, but it is always exciting to see it again. The music, for one thing, is rich, powerful and inspirational, and gives us the impetus to stretch beyond ourselves to create a magical performance. By the end of this week we had put all of Act 1 together, and were able to do a "stumble through" of it.
