The Nigredo Hotel Orchestra in 2005

In a break from rehearsing for the upcoming Opera To Go at Tapestry New Opera Works, Assistant Stage Manager Marisa Vest showed me some pictures she had taken for the 2005 production of Nigredo Hotel (libretto by Ann-Marie MacDonald, music by Nic Gotham), including the one at left of the band. From left to right: Andy Morris, percussion, Joe Phillips, bass, Robert Stevenson, clarinet, and me on piano. I had totally forgotten about my early 2005 goatee.

Incidentally, Nigredo Hotel is the most-performed Canadian opera ever written, with over 100 performances in Canada, Great Britain, and Australia since it premiered in 1992.
