The principals at the Sitzprobe

It was great to see the principals in action at yesterday’s Sitzprobe, Quentin Hayes as Macbeth, Miriam Murphy as Lady Macbeth, Charne Rocheford as Macduff and Matthew Rose as Banquo.

When I was at the Sitzprobe yesterday, I wondered why both Miriam and Matthew were singing with their hand at their ear, as you can see in some of the photos. Matthew later explained to me that by blocking your ear, you can actually hear better what you are singing. I tried it and it works….
