Apologies once again for delays. We did a little traveling, and had to deal with some family medical issues.
I have the complete libretto now! Dave outwrote himself.
In Act II, there is an extended dance/choreographic sequence. I have written the music for that, and I have completed Act III, scene 2. I would say we are comfortably past the halfway point. (It still all needs to go into Finale, which will be several weeks’ worth of work itself, but that’s OK.) The next stage of the game will be to write Act III, scene 1 (which will feature “The Hunters of Kentucky” prominently, as it takes place during the Jackson inaugural…uh, bacchanalia).
You don’t often get the chance to write patriotic kegger music, so this oughta be fun.
Anyway, back to the grind.
