A very good time was had by all at our October 15th wine tasting … if you call enjoying lively conversation, beautiful music, interesting wines, and delicious cheeses and charcuterie a “good time”! Many thanks for the lovely event go to our hosts Kevin and Hope Cotter, organizers from The Princeton Festival Guild, wine merchants CoolVines, cheese purveyors Olsson’s Fine Foods, musicians Jessica Medoff and Michael Bunchman, and surprise guest Ludwig van Beethoven (Lance Channing).
Artistic and General Director Richard Tang Yuk shared a first look at our 2017 season, with more events to be announced as they evolve –
- Opera: Fidelio, Beethoven’s only opera, matching a stirring tale of conjugal love, personal heroism, and the overthrow of tyranny with some of the most glorious and moving music ever composed for the stage
- Musical: Stop the World, I Want to Get Off (book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley), a thought-provoking tale about the fleeting nature of worldly success
- Jazz: Peter Martin Trio from St. Louis
- Dance: Ballet X, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company
- Interdisciplinary: The Unicorn, the Gorgon and the Manticore (words & music by Gian Carlo Menotti), a madrigal fable for chorus, dancers, and chamber orchestra with a timeless story of “keeping up with the Joneses”
- Film: Quartet (directed by Dustin Hoffman and starring Maggie Smith), screening of the 2012 film in collaboration with The Princeton Garden Theatre
- Chamber music: Concordia Chamber Players
- Baroque Orchestra and Choral concerts
- Conducting Master Class
- Piano Competition
(And here’s the inevitable fine print – events, venues and schedule are subject to change.)
