Sweet Tracks!

In Phase III+, NTPA’s “standard” production method will be to mimic some professional theatre environments by employing “sweet-tracks” that allow ensembles to pre-record group vocal elements such that during live performances they may project at less than 100% of volume. This enables the performer to focus on choreography and other activities, compensates for volume loss due to masks, and provides a better online audio experience. Studies have shown this approach also reduces “transmission risk” by up to 95% versus regular full-volume onstage singing.

Synopsis

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter.
