Week 21 of The Big Break: Humana Festival rehearsals, understudies in ballet rehearsal, and saying goodbye to the Kentucky Opera.

On our audio diary series The Big Break, two of our emerging performers take us inside rehearsals for upcoming productions while a third says farewell to Louisville. Over at the Louisville Ballet, trainee Claire Horrocks discusses the gravity of the understudy role in rehearsal, while at Actors Theatre of Louisville, apprentice Samantha Beach sits in on rehearsals for the five productions opening soon in the Humana Festival of New American Plays.

And Brad Raymond says a fond farewell to the Kentucky Opera — he’s headed home to Texas and on to the next stage of his career (there’s a tenor available if you’re hiring!) now that the Kentucky Opera season is over.
