The Making of Amelia Part 2:
Working With a New Score

The Making of Amelia continues with Part II of our latest video series. Most operas have an abundance of recordings and previous performances for the artists and creative team to study, but what do you do when there are no orchestral recordings because the work you’re rehearsing is brand new? In this segment, Seattle Opera Head of Coach-Accompanists David McDade explores what it’s like to rehearse a score that’s never before been performed.

  1. Thanks, I enjoyed the video and the information of the process.

    As a request for some future blog content I would love to be able to take a virtual tour of the scene shop. I have always wanted to visit it in person but have not had the chance to do so.

  2. Karin - your wish might come true in the other videos in this Making of Amelia series!
