TT: Minute by minute
Yesterday's rehearsal of The Letter took place out of doors. We couldn't have asked for a better day to go outside and play: the heat wave that rolled over Santa Fe last week finally loosened its grip on the city, and the "ranch" where the Santa Fe Opera makes its home was cooled by a delicious summer breeze.
Much to my delight, I discovered as the rehearsal got underway that I was able to pick up a wi-fi signal in the rehearsal shed, so I decided to use my iBook to "livetweet" the proceedings on my Twitter page. By the time we were done, I'd posted more than four dozen updates and received direct messages from numerous readers here and in England (including a couple of Santa Fe Opera staffers who were stuck in their offices). So far as I know, this is the first time that anyone has ever tweeted a running account of a rehearsal for a new opera.
In lieu of a detailed posting about Tuesday's activities, allow me to point you to my Twitter page, where you can read all about how things went.
