STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at LA DOUBLE COQUETTE, 6/4STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at LA DOUBLE COQUETTE, 6/4
by Stage Tube - May 6, 2016

What happens when a good-looking, double-crossing cross-dresser meets her match(es) in beautiful costumes designed by leading French artist Annette Messager ("a bold messenger of feminist art," The New York Times)? The very French La Double Coquette, Ensemble Amarillis' charming update of an opera comique by Antoine Dauvergne, first presented in 1753. Glorious voices bring Dauvergne's gorgeous score to life, with 32 additions - supplements, asides, codas, and new harmonies that seamlessly complement the original score -- by contemporary French composer Gerard Pesson, and a cheeky, updated libretto by French poet Pierre Alferi. In a plot reminiscent of a farce by Marivaux, two women compete for the same fickle lover. The acoustic heaven of the Alexander Kasser Theater is the perfect place to hear this lovely baroque classic (sung in French with English and French supertitles) performed by a gifted cast and the superb musicians of the 11-member Ensemble Amarillis. Amarillis is now one of Europe's most original Baroque ensembles, known for its fine sound and excellent instrumental technique. Fresh from the Spoleto Festival, this is the NY/NJ area premiere of this saucy chamber opera produced by Festival d'Automne a Paris.

Zimmerli Art Museum to Display Woodcut Prints from Helen Hyde, Bertha LumZimmerli Art Museum to Display Woodcut Prints from Helen Hyde, Bertha Lum
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2016

New Brunswick, NJ – The historic re-establishment of trade between Japan and Western nations in 1853 also greatly influenced art and culture throughout the second half of the 19th century. Exhibitions at museums and world's fairs introduced Asian artists and traditions in North America and Europe, where artists enthusiastically embraced subjects, compositions, and materials they rarely – if ever – had seen before. The Zimmerli Art Museum's new exhibition “Infinite Opportunities Offered in Color”:  Prints by Helen Hyde and Bertha Lum, on view through July 31, features 35 works by two American artists who, in turn, disseminated these artistic developments to audiences back home. Both artists spent considerable time living abroad in Asia and recognized the unique artistic possibilities for representing traditional aspects of life in an area of the world that was rapidly modernizing. They mastered complex color printing techniques and depicted aspects of Japanese and Chinese culture that essentially had been absent in the West. Because these artists generally are presented in survey exhibitions, this is a rare opportunity to view a significant group of works by either artist.“Infinite Opportunities Offered in Color” also complements other works on view from the Zimmerli's permanent collection, including examples of the Japonisme movement and a gallery that commemorates Rutgers' historic relationship with Japan.   (more...)
