Osvaldo Golijov arrived last night, and was at rehearsal today to help us play his piece the way he imagined it. He stood against the wall behind Maria for most of the rehearsal, with an intense expression on his face (eyes, often closed).

After rehearsal, we went out for India food with our old cellist friend Edward Wu. Ed was supposed to be a part of the cello section, but ended up being unable to participate. :(

Tomorrow is the west coast premiere of La Pasión! We're all very excited to be a part of this, and every once in awhile, one of us will lean over to the person next to us and whisper, "this piece rocks."

Peter Sellars stopped by at the end of the rehearsal, and I snapped a photo of him with Maria and Ozzie. "That picture you took is going to be a historic photo," said Barry.

Maria ended rehearsal with: (directed at the chorus) "Get lots of rest. Don't go out salsa dancing!" :)
