I didn’t know what a sitzprobe was before I started working at New York City Opera (NYCO) two weeks ago.  It sounds like a really bad German techno dance move to me, but in reality, it’s the first time vocalist and instrumentalists have a seated rehearsal.  I went to hear a “sitz” for Madama Butterfly at NYCO’s theater (the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center).  The sounds were amazing, as was the space.  Here’s a photo:

Great term to drill down on. Isn’t the new theater stunning? What do you do at NYCO, if you don’t mind my asking?
