The Parliament of Reality

by the Icelandic sculptor Olafur Eliasson. Installed at Bard College in 2009 (the location of my usual summer opera destination in the Hudson River Valley).

Taneyev's Opera ORESTEIA at Bard

A Russian rarity at Bard Summerscape in the Hudson River Valley this year -- it deserves a place in more regular repertoire! I saw last Friday night's performance, and there are a few more performances this week before the production heads to the Mariinsky Theater in Saint Petersburg.
