The Burning Fiery Furnace

The last production of Opera Brittenica's 2013-2014 season will feature local celebrity baritone, Robert Honeysucker and NYC tenor, Marcos Vigil in Benjamin Britten's second church parable; "The Burning Fiery Furnace." The production will be led by Donald Teeters (Conductor Emeritus of the Boston Cecilia) and Erin Huelskamp (Founding Member of Juventas New Music) at All Saints Parish in Brookline, thanks to the generosity of the parish. There will be no official ticket price, but a donation of $10 would be greatly appreciated. 

The Burning Fiery Furnace tells the story of Nebuchadnezzar and the three Israelites, Ananias, Misael and Asarias (corresponding Babylonian names:Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego), who were thrown into a furnace for their refusal to worship Nebuchadnezzar's image of gold. However, God saves them from death, as the voice of an angel joins the Israelites in a 'Benedicte'.

From the Britten/Pears Foundation Website:

After the inward concentration of Curlew River, Britten set out to make his second Church Parable, ‘something much less sombre, an altogether gayer affair’ as he put it. Based on the Old Testament story of Nebuchadnezzar and the three Israelites, The Burning Fiery Furnace uses the same basic vocal and instrumental forces as its predecessor and retains its most distinctive structural features, but the work makes a strongly contrasted impression. 

The attempt to write in a generally lighter vein results in a more flexible approach and a greater variety of colour (aided by Britten’s imaginative deployment of the rarely used alto trombone). Although the work is no less powerful and concentrated as a result, the wider range can accommodate such memorable diversions as the young acolytes’ entertainment during the Babylonian feast and the march before the raising of the image of Merodak when the players take up their instruments and process around the church.

We are pleased to announce a magical evening, to benefit, The Home for Little Wanderers.It will be our pleasure to welcome you to The Larz Anderson Auto Museum,in Brookline. This 1888 Castle like Carriage House was built by the first architect of Boston, Edmund Wheelwright, and modeled after the French "Chateau de Chaumont-Sur-Loire".

This wonderful Tenor from Salerno,Italy, has toured throughout Europe for many years, and debuted in The USA in March of 2013. He was featured in The Boston Globe and sang, selling out audiences, while here. Carmine is happy to perform for such a worthy cause at this beautiful venue.He will take you on a musical journey, you won't soon forget....

Guests can tour the entire museum at their leisure, while sipping a cocktail from the cash bar and enjoying complimentary hors d'oeuvres.There is plenty of parking on the premises. Come early and stroll  the  64 acres of beautiful grounds.

 A little information about myself, Carol Foley and  Barbara LeRoy. We have both volunteered for The Home in the past. We agree that it is  vital to help our children in this state.What could be more important than taking care of children? What a wonderful opportunity to come together for the children, have a great evening, enjoy a fabulous musical talent , meet new friends, and experience some New England history!

Six Thinking Hats

Six Thinking Hats® is a simple, effective parallel thinking process that helps people be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved. And once learned the tools can be applied immediately!

You and your team members can learn how to separate thinking into six valuable functions and roles. Each thinking role is identified with a colored symbolic "thinking hat." By mentally wearing and switching "hats," you can easily focus or redirect thoughts, the conversation, or the meeting.

•look at problems, decisions, and opportunities systematically

•use Parallel Thinking™ as a group or team to generate more, better ideas and solutions

•make meetings much shorter and more productive

•reduce conflict among team members or meeting participants

•stimulate innovation by generating more and better ideas quickly

•create dynamic, results oriented meetings that make people want to participate

•go beyond the obvious to discover effective alternate solutions

•spot opportunities where others see only problems

•think clearly and objectively

•view problems from new and unusual angles

•make thorough evaluations

•see all sides of a situation

•keep egos and "turf protection" in check

•achieve significant and meaningful results

Cinema Jukebox: HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH

Little East German boy, Hansel, spent his young life secretly listening to American rock & roll and dressing up in his mother's dresses, heels, wigs and lipstick.

He was destined for great things, but not stuck in an East German Soviet Block apartment. When a U.S. G.I. catches his eye and offers to help him get a sex-change operation and move to America, Hansel jumps at the chance to finally escape into his dreams.

The sex-change operation gets botched, however, and while Hansel has become Hedwig, she now has a one-inch mound of flesh where her penis used to be and her vagina never was. Her G.I. sugardaddy leaves her, but no obstacle will stop her flight to the U.S. to become a world-renowned rock goddess... except success.

Puppet Building 101 Adult Puppetry Class

Puppets are moving sculptures carefully crafted to be brought to life. Engineering and design play crucial roles in shaping a puppet character's personality and movement abilities. In "Puppet Building 101" participants will each create an original sculpted rod puppet from scratch. To begin, class members will learn how to turn their ideas into drawn designs, ready to be produced. From there, participants will sculpt plasticine, apply paper mache, pattern and sew fabric, and apply other materials to turn their designs into fully functional, performance-ready works of art! Although the puppet made in class will be a rod puppet, the skills and techniques used are applicable to many types of puppet construction.

This is an intro-level class. Lessons are cumulative so consistent attendance is important. Participants will be expected to work on projects outside of class time.
