Jonathan Salzedo writes …
Two and a half years ago, I got the first request from Sara Hagenbuch to be music director and to help find and orchestra for their upcoming production of Handel’s Ariodante. Handel’s operas are irresistible. And so is Black Box’s approach. Great art often comes from an attitude of getting a lot from a little. How does this work in practice? Check our May’s Mainly Handel offerings, centered around our third exciting Black Box collaboration – Aci, Galatea e Polifemo. It is a great love story from mythology, including a horrid giant with a wonderful booming voice, tragic misunderstandings between lovers and a wannabe, and a creative outcome. Plus some chamber music productions featuring some of the same musicians.
So we’re keeping busy, but also just starting to plan for summer and fall events – watch this space for details …
