Sweat, Sweat, Sweat

Back to see Bicycle Opera Project’s production of Sweat last night as it opened a run of four performances in Toronto on a suitably diaphoretic Toronto evening.  This time we were at the Aki Studio in the Daniels Spectrum complex.  It’s quite a small theatre but has the proper complement of lighting and so on to permit a richer staging than when I saw it in Hamilton.  Other than to note that proper lighting definitely helps the atmospherics I haven’t got much to add to my review of the show at WAHC.  I guess with three weeks touring the show has got a little more polished but it’s fine detail stuff.  So, to summarise, it’s an excellent piece with a well crafted libretto and a sophisticated score which is realized expertly despite the significant amount of movement that has to be synched with the music.  It’s a real step up in ambition and execution for BOP.  You should see it if you can.
