Last night was the premiere of House of Dreams in front of a very full house in Rolston Hall. It was a fittingly climactic finish to an intense week of work.

Today we had two complete run-throughs of the House of Dreams show. It's coming together nicely, but these rehearsals are crucial as we work on internalizing all the movement and stage direction in addition to the music.

After the third full day of rehearsals we've now blocked the entire program. Alison has chosen some absolutely gorgeous works of art as backdrops and the set and lighting look fabulous. In many ways House of Dreams is coming together much more smoothly than The Galileo Project did at first.

It's great to be back in Banff again. Unfortunately, we arrived here too late at night to see any of the scenery on the 2-hour bus ride from Calgary. However, this only made the view that greeted me as I walked outside the next morning that much more stunning.
