The newest addition to my music stand is Dimitri Shostakovich' MOSCOW, CHERRY TOWN for Long Beach Opera. Once again my dear husband is doing sound design. As Bob says, "We met at work, and I always enjoy working with you."
We get to take this production on the road - at least on the roads of Southern California - with performances at the Center Theater in Long Beach, the Barclay Theater in Irvine, and Barnum Hall in Santa Monica.
Sun. May 15, 2011 - 2pm
Center Theater, Long Beach
Wed. May 18, 2011 - 7:30pm
Irvine Barclay Theater, Irvine
Sun. May 22, 2011 - 2pm
Barnum Hall, Santa Monica
Duration: 3 hours, 1 intermission
Sung in English with English Supertitles
Here's a taste of the music (LBO production will be IN ENGLISH):
Don't expect the giant orchestra, however. We've got a cozy chamber version that looks hilarious. Rehearsals begin the first part of May.
I'm really looking forward to life in Cherry Town!
