Season of Secrets by Sally Nicholls: 🍁🍃🍂
On a wild and stormy night Molly runs away from her grandparents' house. Her dad has sent her to live there until he Sorts Things Out at home.
In the howling darkness, Molly sees a desperate figure running for his life from a terrifying midnight hunt. He has come to help her. But why? And who is he? "Season of Secrets" weaves the tale of a heartbroken child and an age-old legend into a haunting story of love, healing and strange magic.

Day 25 of #FanaticalBirdOctober is "currently reading". I'm currently switching between these two books. At this point I don't think I'll be able to finished all my October TBR because work has been such an itch-bay 😂

Here's my #octobertbr 🤗 For me October is a month to read Horror and spooky books, though I am not that good with horror books 😂 I'm actually have more books on my list this month, but the rest is on my kindle/ereader so they're not in the picture.
🔸
I also included some non-horror books so I won't get bored. I'm mostly excited to read "Something Wicked This Way Comes" for horror book, and "Station Eleven" for non-horror book.
🔸
I also decided to participate in #FanaticalBirdOctober 🎃 I'm one day late, so I think I'm going to do double post for today 😁 This post is for DAY 1: October TBR 🍁
🔸
QOTD: Are you planning to read horror books this month?

I tell my secret?
No indeed, not I;
Perhaps some day, who knows?
But not today; it froze,
and blows and snows.....-

A little laughter. It's important to keep things light during rehearsals when working on a piece as dark and brooding as Puccini's Il tabarro... Here's stage manager Kate Freston-Davy with our Giorgetta, Giselle Allen and La Frugola, Anne-Marie Owens taking a break. Our Puccini double bill sets pulses racing at @royalnottingham this Friday! Hope to see you there...

They really really don't like the French... apparently.
Officers Mr Redburn and Mr Flint turn their noses up at the culture of their enemies at sea aboard the HMS Indomitable. Billy Budd sails to @the_lowry tonight, for our second performance of Britten's all-male masterpiece of the tour. If you're seeing the show, remember to tell us what you thought!

Somebody looks a little traumatized!
Sophie (@efwyn) is alarmed by the lecherous advances of her new 'fiance' Baron Ochs (Henry Waddington), and together she and Octavian (@shermanh) must plan to outwit him... Excited for our first performance of Strauss' sumptuous Der Rosenkavalier @The_Lowry this pm! Remember to tell us what you thought.

There's two sides to every story... Stage Manager Kate Freston-Davy and members of the cast & technical team backstage during rehearsals at the beautiful @leedsgrandtheatre for our production of Puccini's Il tabarro. If you've seen the show from the other side, tell us what you thought!

We're heading to an equally impressive venue this week with our #seasonofsecrets tour: @The_Lowry. Catch us there!

Theatre wisdom.
We love this — backwards logic of the theatre, because we're all a little crazy! It's pinned up backstage at out home venue @leedsgrandtheatre and we wanted to share it with you. We hope you'll join is in wishing all our artists luck for their performances @the_lowry next week, or as opera singers say 'Toi Toi Toi'! Follow us @operanorth to see more and to get to know us better :) #ArtistTakeover #TheLowry #Theatre #Theater #Opera #Backstage #Opera #OperaOnTour #OperaNorth #IgersManchester #mcruk #igersmcruk #Salford #theatrewisdom #breakaleg #rules #seasonofsecrets #behindthescenes

Happy Friday! A team effort.
The opera rehearsal studio can get pretty busy! Rehearsing an opera requires a lot of different people — besides the performers you've got the director, assistant director, conductor, assistant conductor, choreographer, language coach, repetiteur (pianist), stage management, members of the technical crew, and more!

Here you can see just some of the production team for Billy Budd during the final rehearsal studio run. This intense story, set on the warship HMS Indomitable, comes to @the_lowry next Thursday... #ArtistTakeover #TheLowry #Theatre #Theater #Opera #Backstage #Opera #OperaOnTour #OperaNorth #IgersManchester #mcruk #igersmcruk #Salford #ONBudd #billybudd #britten #seasonofsecrets #rehearsal #productionteam #team #teameffort #noiinteam

Conductor Jac van Steen takes the helm of our Puccini double bill of Il tabarro and Suor Angelica in the orchestra pit @newcastletheatreroyal tonight!
We asked him why Puccini's music makes us feel the way that it does: "There are three key aspects of Puccini’s writing which cause his music to touch our emotions: Honesty, simplicity, and purity. These direct qualities mean that Puccini affects connoisseurs and those who have never heard his music before equally." Discover more on our blog via the link in our bio... Photo by @tomarber

Gotcha!

Here's actor Durassie Kiangangu, who plays the role of the Marschallin's servant in Der Rosenkavalier, in a dressing room during stage rehearsals. You can see photographs of the costume pinned to the wall. These photos are taken at the beginning of the rehearsal period when each performer has a costume fitting wit the wardrobe department, and are then used as a reference point for the rest of the run, so everyone knows exactly how the costume and wig is meant to look!

The Marschallin's servant is a silent role, but has some fantastic comic moments to look out for... #ArtistTakeover #TheLowry #Theatre #Theater #Opera #OperaOnTour #OperaNorth #IgersManchester #mcruk #igersmcruk #Salford #Backstage #BehindtheScenes #DressingRoom #Costume #ONRosenkavalier #derrosenkavalier #seasonofsecrets #strauss

Prompt corner.
We can't wait to bring our intense double bill of Puccini one act operas to @the_lowry next Thursday!

Here's one taken from stage rehearsals for Il tabarro. You can see our Deputy Stage Manager Becky sat at Prompt Corner with a meticulously marked up version of the score so she can give all the cues! There are three monitors so the Deputy Stage Manager can see what is going on on the stage, backstage, and see the conductor in the orchestra pit... It's a pretty intense job, and we are lucky to have such a fantastic team of stage managers here at Opera North who are absolutely vital to our work in Leeds and on tour.
