(If you can call November “fall,” which perhaps you cannot.) Two updates:
1) I’m in Baltimore/DC now for the final rehearsals and the premiere, on Monday, November 19th, at the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theatre, of the one-act opera “A Game of Hearts,” with music by Douglas Pew and words by your correspondent.
Longtime SOSers know this piece to be one of three twenty-minute operas commissioned by the Kennedy Center / Washington National Opera as part of the first year of the American Opera Initiative.
2) Shortly after said operaticness, upon returning to Polska, a very unfinished “pokaz” (showing) of everybody’s favorite Ancient Greek Mash-Up That Wouldn’t Die, To Die In Athens//Umrzeć w Atenach, will be presented (passive voice!) at Fabryka Sztuki (ul. Tymienieckiego 3) in Łódź on Sunday, December 2nd at 5 pm. Free admission. Details and Facebook event here.
If you want to join the Greek chorus, show up from 12-4 to rehearse with us. Chór jest (as always) otwarty dla wszystkich.
