Gianni Schicchi: the 1st sing-through

Maestro José Luis Moscovich guides the talented troupe of singers gathered by Opera Santa Barbara for their upcoming production of Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi” with valuable insights into some subtle nuances of the Italian language so they can give the proper inflections and meaning to the lyrics. The best part is he engages their thoughts about what the proper interpretation of a phrase is, linguistically and musically. This is especially tricky with comedy and a fascinating process to witness. This will be a fine cast, and the performances will be too!
