We're now in the Netherlands, up in the northeast corner of the country, Groningen, getting ready for our tech rehearsal.
It's disorienting to have a 30-degree temperature drop--suddenly the scarf I used to cover my head in Istanbul's mosques is now wrapped around my throat to bar the cold.
Mike's performing in a speigeltent, pictured above. (Note: picture was actually taken last year, though I expect it will look very much the same.) It's a round, mirrored structure, with lots of velvet and colored panels. It feels very much like performing in a tented carousel, except there is a stage and audience instead of wooden horses.
More after we've survived our opening!
