There have been some surprise moments during the season, for example, when I had to step in at the Sitzprobe (first rehearsal of the singers with the orchestra) and sing Rodolfo's part! (Yes, that is right, La Boheme's Rodolfo.. not a small part!). Or when I had to take over two piano- stage rehearsals! Even better, the moments Gianluca Marciano let me conduct the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra! As I said, a wonderful experience!
