These guys have come a long way since the audition night we watched in December, when 40 men tumbled and jumped for a chance to be cast in San Diego Opera’s “Moby-Dick” as supernumeraries, or cast members who act, climb and fight but don’t sing.
Now, with a couple of months of rehearsal under their belts, they embody the crew of the Pequod, ship of whalers that a crazed Captain Ahab directs to carry out his obsessive mission.
San Diego Opera has been putting together videos of various facets of rehearsal, and we’ve been posting them here this week as Opening Night gets closer. Here’s a look at the supers for “Moby-Dick.” Recognize any of the guys from the audition we watched?
Our friends at NBC 7 San Diego and I went to the first rehearsal with the orchestra last night and will bring you a sneak peek at 4:30. (We’ll post a clip here, too.)
