On this day in 2009, Amy Haworth, Heather Cairncross and I were heading home after our first performance of "Shelter" by Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe. Shelter is a quasi-theatrical piece, involving 2 screens, various projections, lighting, and much moving around for the singers (around the on-stage instrumentalists). The director drummed our route into us, round a mocked up stage in Cologne, so that the changes between movements might be as seamless as possible. Once we got to the theatre in Strasbourg, however, it transpired that stage-left was impassable, due to a clutter of lights, wires, electronics etc, there were problems with lighting, and difficulties in seeing the conductor (Peter Rundel). We did have a conductor monitor on the balcony, but when the front scrim came down, Peter looked like a blurred snowflake. Still, we made it through. Ah, the joys of live performance! ...
