“Earnest is coming!”
The Auburn Players are proud to present Oscar Wilde’s, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST at the Auburn Public Theater  November 13, 14, 15 2009. Directed by Collin Sullivan

“…swift, sardonic repartee in Wilde’s masterpiece ripples through the ages. Probably the wittiest play in the English language.” —Carlyn James New York Times May 2008
The story  revolves around the most ingenious case of “manufactured” mistaken identity ever put into a play. Wilde’s comedic masterpiece satirizes English society in the late Victorian era. Two wealthy young men pretend their names are Earnest in order to impress their beloveds. Audiences have loved this play since it opened in 1895.

Further information about this delightful presentation can be had at www.auburnplayers.net

Syracuse Opera presents Puccini’s “La Boheme”

La Bohème features large replicas of Impressionist art and posters as part of the scenery; and a series of art song recitals based on works of art in the exhibit to be performed in the galleries and in the Everson Museum’s Hosmer Auditorium.

La Bohème will be performed on October 23 and 25, 2009, in the John H. Mulroy Civic Center Theaters at Oncenter. The central work in Turner to Cézanne is Renoir’s La Parisienne. The Syracuse Opera plans to recreate Renoir’s art onstage as one of Mimi’s costumes.

Adriana Zabala has created a program called “L’heure exquise”, musical impressions from Turner to Cézanne that pairs 10 works in the exhibit with art songs by Elgar, Debussy, Ravel, Fauré and Duparc set to the poetry of Verlaine, Hugo and Moréas, among others.

There will be performances both in the galleries with the actual paintings and in the Everson’s recital hall where we will project images of the paintings. The recitals will take place in mid-November, in collaboration with the Everson Museum’s exhibition schedule.
