Washington National Opera to Present THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT with Special Opening Night Guest Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg!
by BWW News Desk - Oct 21, 2016

Washington National Opera (WNO) continues its 2016–2017 season with a new production of Gaetano Donizetti's mashup of slapstick comedy and charming romance—The Daughter of the Regiment, November 12–20, 2016, in the Kennedy Center Opera House. The cast is led by superstar tenor Lawrence Brownlee as the hero Tonio and fast-rising soprano Lisette Oropesa, who starred as Susanna earlier this season in WNO's The Marriage of Figaro, as Marie. While the opera is best known for the vocal acrobatics required of its singers, the high-comedy antics of the non-singing role of The Duchess of Krakenthorp often steal the show. On opening night, November 12, 2016, the role of The Duchess will be performed by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her official Washington National Opera stage debut. The brand-new WNO production is directed by acclaimed Broadway director and choreographer Robert Longbottom, and the WNO Orchestra is led by rising conductor Christopher Allen, both in their WNO debuts.

Cindy Amrhein Pens Book on the History of New York and More
by BWW News Desk - Oct 12, 2016

From the book blurb on the back cover, 'A complex and troubled history defines the borders of upstate New York beyond the physical boundaries of its rivers and lakes. The United States and the state were often deceptive in their territory negotiations with the Iroquois Six Nations. Amidst the growing quest for more land among settlers and then fledgling Americans, the Indian nations attempted to maintain their autonomy. Yet state land continued to encroach the Six Nations. Local historian Cindy Amrhein takes a close and critical view of these transactions. Evidence of dubious deals, bribes, faulty surveys and coerced signatures may help explain why many of the Nations now feel they were cheated out of their territory.' Released in March of 2016, Amrhein's new book is now carried in over 30 college/university libraries in 19 states including Columbia University, Princeton, Harvard, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and Yale University Law School Library, according to Editorial reviews: 'Now I understand better why I periodically read about highly contested claims even today in the Adirondack region.Reading the book has given me a better appreciation of the complexity of the matter.' Richard Frost, Adirondack Daily Enterprise 'Amrhein does an excellent job of organizing and laying out her information in a straight forward manner. I would recommend this book published by The History Press.' Alex Hamer, Indian Country Today 'Every elected official in the region should read this book, as should every student in the state, as it is important for the greater public to realize why there is so much frustration with those trying to claim land that was unlawfully removed.' Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door' Author, abstractor, writer and county historian Cindy Amrhein provided Akwesasne community members with a critical insight into local (Hogansburg), as well as regional Iroquoian land negotiations in her book, A History of Native American Land Rights in Upstate New York' Karonhiaton, Indian Time Available in paperback and eBook formats at Barnes & Noble, Amazon as well as other retail and online outlets. About the Author: Cindy Amrhein is the county historian for Wyoming County, New York. After working for ten years as a freelance abstractor for a title search company, Cindy Amrhein changed her focus to title searching only historic properties and Native American land. From 2004 to 2006 Cindy was a weekly columnist for a Native American newspaper in northern New York State, Akwesasne Phoenix Sundays (now out of print) under the pen name of HistorySleuth, the handle she still uses online.
