Some early blocking rehearsals today for Lady Macbeth. Part of the fascination of initial rehearsals is the way that things I've being hearing in my head for months take on a completely new life and identity when voiced in ways I didn't quite expect. The temptation is to impose my own voices of imagination onto those who don't and can't hear them. This is a temptation to resist, I've discovered over the years.
Making it new is partly about letting it go.
