The In Series adapts an opera about a crazy, juvenile ruler to the standards of our time - The Washington Post

The In Series adapts an opera about a crazy, juvenile ruler to the standards of our time  The Washington Post

Examining the 18th-century fascination with the East through 21st-century eyes: Jarrod Lee and company in “The Tale of Serse,” the In Series’s adaptation of Handel’s opera.Angelisa Gillyard Let’s talk about adapting opera. I have no problem with a director deciding to abridge a Shakespeare play for performance, or even to modernize its language. I also have no problem when cuts are made in a play for a movie version. So I see no reason opera should be uniquely sacrosanct when it comes to the red pencil. Indeed, if the In Series new production and adaptation of Handel’s “Serse” (Xerxes) show...

D-Day, 75 years ago: When York County’s worried people fell to their knees  York Daily Record

As thousands of Allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy in the D-Day assault 75 years ago on June 6, York County residents joined countless others worldwide in falling to their knees. Locally, people prayed in houses of worship, at special services in defense plants and in schools. For a moment in the afternoon, factories were silent. Stores and local offices closed. World War II’s D-Day invasion surprised the Germans in France, but not the people in York County. For one thing, they knew the demand for things that their humming machines were producing: parts for cannons and gun carr...

Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen primed to handle choice role in S.F. Opera’s ‘Orlando’  The Mercury News

Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen arrives for our interview looking exuberant. “I love Handel,” says the countertenor, who is making his San Francisco Opera mainstage debut as Medoro in the company’s summer production of the composer’s “Orlando.” He’s just finished a lengthy rehearsal, but he seems to have enough energy to go back and take it from the top. Cohen, 25, is a young artist in the company’s Adler Fellowship program, but he’s already made a big impression in the Bay Area. The New York transplant has scored successes in appearances with San Francisco Ballet, American Bach Soloists and, most rec...
