Opera Production 2019
The SMPP 2019 will be presenting Act II of the operetta Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II.
We will use the G. Schirmer edition and using the Ruth and Thomas Martin translation.
Opera auditions will take place at Raphael Hall on Friday June 28th (after Orientation).
Prince Orlofsky's parties are legendary. They delight everyone but him. Orlofsky suffers from that terrible disease of billionaires-ennui: everything bores him! He cannot laugh. Tonight, Doctor Falke is his 'Master of the Revels' and has arranged something special for the Count's amusement. Orlofsky promises to pin a medal on Falke's chest if it makes him laugh.
When the Act opens, the guests are singing in praise of the occasion. Adèle receives a less than warm welcome from her sister. 'Letter? What letter? I didn't send you a letter!' Falke sent it. He greets Adele warmly, congratulates her on her new career as an actress, and rechristens her 'Tanya'. A moment later Eisenstein arrives, calling himself the Marquis Renard.
First he makes the grave faux pas of mistaking the elegant actress Tanya for his housemaid! The guests take him to task in 'The Laughing Song'. Adèle joins in. Next, Eisenstein strikes up an undying friendship with Chevalier Chagrin, the pseudonym being used by prison governor Frank. But by the time Falke's chief guest of the evening arrives - a masked Hungarian Countess - Eisenstein has a pair of dancing girls on each arm and his infallible chiming watch at the ready.
He is extremely taken with the mysterious foreign lady. Being well acquainted with the watch and its uses, the 'Countess' (Rosalinda in disguise of course) encourages Eisenstein to put it through its paces. During 'The Watch Duet', she manages to take it from him in such a way that he dare not ask for it back. He bewails his disgrace at losing it.
Orlofsky's entertainments of course include a ballet - an obligatory ingredient in operettas of the period. Then the 'Hungarian Countess' obliges the guests by singing a native Hungarian folksong - a Czardas. Then Count Orlofsky toasts the life and soul of the party - 'Champagne the Great!' Frank and Eisenstein are, by this stage, inseparable. The mood is one of universal friendship as Orlofsky begins the dancing with a waltz - the waltz!
The clock strikes midnight. Like twin Cinderellas, Eisenstein and Frank scramble out of doors, leaving behind a wake of wrong coats and hats, not realising that they are headed for the same destination.
This year the Summer Music Performance Program at ACT will be offering Alexander Technique sessions.
The Alexander Technique is a method that teaches you to move in a more relaxed and comfortable way, the way nature intended. The Alexander training shines a light on inefficient habits of movement and patterns of accumulated tension, which interfere with our innate ability to move easily and according to our design. It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of one’s own learning and healing process, an active exploration that changes the way one thinks and responds in activity. It provides you with a skill set that can be applied in every situation. Lessons leave one feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded.
The Alexander Technique sessions are ideal for you if:
You are ready to identify and lose the harmful habits you have built up over a lifetime of stress.
You are ready to learn to move freely and feel more comfortable in your own body.
You suffer from repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome.
You have a backache or stiff neck and shoulders.
You become uncomfortable when sitting at your computer for long periods of time for composition purposes or other.
You feel you are not performing at your full potential or would like to further explore ways to improve your technical and artistic skills.
Please contact Dr. Nevart V. Galileas at +30 6945 392 301 and/or email@example.com to reserve a lesson time including your instrument and a few sentences explaining what drew you to Alexander Technique. *At the lessons please wear comfortable clothing.
