The rehearsal hall is a very special place. It's a place for risk taking, as the cast and team explore the emotional and musical terrain of each opera. It's a place for hard work, hours and hours of theatrical and musical work. All in an effort to mount the most riveting production possible. For you. When you're baring your soul and taking considerable personal risk to discover the exquisite richness in a work like Rodelinda, it's not easy to have a camera trained on you. Our hats are off to everyone in the rehearsal hall for allowing our camera to prowl around in order to share an early look at the production with our family of patrons!

A distinctly different sound in the rehearsal hall with this production. Where typically there would be only a piano, here we have some new (or old, actually!) instruments in order to present Handel's brilliant music appropriately. At the Keller, you'll enjoy the work of the people here: (l-r) Grant Herreid (Baroque guitar), Michael Leopold (theorbo), Laurie Presthus (cello), and Conductor George Manahan (who also plays one of the two harpsichords). Behind them, Tom Webb at the piano.
