Internship: International Opera Theater; Citta della Pieve, Italy
My Hepburn Internship with the International Opera Theater was a challenging and engaging experience. I worked harder than I ever expected taking stage notes, constructing the set, caring for costumes, creating blocking schedules, advertising, body doubling, and running the set during the performance. I gained a deeper understanding of the organization and production of opera and worked with a truly international cast. I also had the opportunity to explore and engage in rural Italian life, observing the basic and beautiful cultural differences that define Italy.
