Fisher Center for the Performing Arts Presents: Anton Rubinstein's "Demon" | Fisher Center at Bard College | 08/18/2018
Anton Rubinstein's "Demon"
Anton Rubinstein’s operatic masterpiece Demon first premiered to great acclaim in 1871. Although performed frequently in Russia, the work remains something of a rarity in the West today.
Based on the renowned fantasy poem by Mikhail Lermontov, Demon boasts rich choral writing and a fiery libretto. The work vividly depicts the isolation and despair of a fallen angel doomed to eternal damnation. All is upended by a chance encounter with the princess Tamara with whom he falls desperately in love. Tamara’s attempts to resist him and her eventual submission end in tragedy.
The 2018 Summerscape production will be conducted by Leon Botstein and directed by the renowned American director Thaddeus Strassberger with sets by Paul Tate dePoo and costumes by Kaye Voyce. An all-Russian cast will be led by the sparkling-voiced soprano Olga Tolkmit (last seen at Bard in Dimitrij) in the role of Tamara alongside baritone Efim Zavalny in his American debut in the title role.

Fisher Center for the Performing Arts Presents: Leonard Bernstein's "Peter Pan" | Fisher Center at Bard College | 08/18/2018
Leonard Bernstein's "Peter Pan"
Definitely not your grandparents’ Peter Pan! Internationally renowned director Christopher Alden reveals a darker side to J. M. Barrie’s fantasy of childhood and the inner child in a psychologically gripping new production, by turns whimsical and sinister, transfigured with a joyous and shimmering score by Leonard Bernstein. Originally composed for a 1950 Broadway production, Bernstein’s Peter Pan songs have long lain like secret jewels, waiting to be rediscovered. Now Alden (revered for his New York City Opera production of Bernstein’s A Quiet Place) restores them to thrilling life in an intimate, contemporary staging, specially commissioned for the worldwide celebration of Bernstein’s centenary year.

Walking the dog Theater of Ghent, NY presents 3 performances of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at Solaris, 360 Warren St. in Hudson, December 21, 22, & 23 at 8:00 pm. Admission is free as part of WTD’s Free Culture Initiative, which seeks to make the experience of live theater available to all; donations in support of this initiative are gratefully received. The Hudson performances are part of a tour that includes communities in NY, CT, and MO in December and several cities in China and Taiwan in the New Year. The theater’s Executive Artistic Director David Anderson, who performs the piece solo (moving fluidly from character to character) says of the project, “A Christmas Carol has become an annual tradition in many communities, and it is the best way I know to become inspired by the season.”
Through drama and masterful storytelling, Anderson performs the story exactly as Dickens wrote it, giving the audience not only the dialogue but the descriptive passages as well. Anderson’s rendition, directed by Ted Pugh, is a modern revival of Dickens’ own manner of storytelling. Dickens gave performances drawn from A Christmas Carol and The Pickwick Papers throughout the Northeastern United States, from his arrival in Boston in mid-November, 1867 to his return to England in April 1868. Walking the dog Theater’s production, now in its 12th year, received high praises from Bruce Hallenbeck of The Independent, who wrote of David Anderson’s performance, “Amazing one-man show. . .what Dickens intended all along!”
Walking the dog Theater, Inc. is a professional not-for-profit theater company based in Columbia County, NY.

Tai Chi Classes | Sadhana Center for Yoga and Meditation | 08/18/2018
with Robert Manenti
Tai Chi is based on the idea that mind, body and emotion are not separable. Consisting of 124 movements, it is performed in a slow, rythmic, continious motion which relaxes the body and helps promote blood circulation. It strengthens muscles and joints and while it develops concentration and awareness, it helps relieve fatigue, tension and stress. Tai Chi is a complete physical exercise bringing stimulation and health to all parts of the body. It may be taken up by anyone regardless of gender, age or health.
