Well friends, we think the letters of the alphabet have been in the same order for quite a long time, too long.....so we are going to shake it up a bit! Make alphabet soup!!
In other words, we are postponing the Dragon (but the Dragon is just resting and Will show up...beware!) We had a last minute cancellation in the cast and were not able to fill the opening on such short notice. So the Dragon is looking at February for his arrival and will keep you posted!
Meanwhile, we roll on to "M", January 6 at the gorgeous Petaluma Museum!
Elizabeth Blumenstock, who has just recorded the Vivaldi Four Seasons with Philharmonia Baroque at Skywalker Ranch, will be playing with members of that orchestra and of VOT (very old time) Music: Phebe Craig, Maria Caswell,Cynthia Albers, David Bowes, Gwyneth Davis and Judiyaba. Music of Merula, Matteis, Martini, Marini, Mielczewski and more! much more...mmmm.....

The Dragon of Wantley will arrive at Beth Ami (the Friedman Center) in Santa Rosa in February. This comic opera was written by a bassoonist in Handel's orchestra.....perhaps spoofing Handel's operas! We will do a semi-staged version, which allows you to enjoy the totally silly words, and the orchestra of strings and harpsichord.
