Wells-Metz Theatre

Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike
By Christopher Durang

Directed by Jonathan Michaelsen

The tranquility of siblings Vanya and Sonia’s uneventful home life is comically disrupted by the return of their movie star sister Masha, who owns the house. She brings with her unwelcome drama, a preening (and usually shirtless) young lover named Spike, and the devastating news of her plans to sell the house. Now all they need to reconcile is Snow White, a voodoo doll, and a play about the destruction of the earth.

Performance dates include October 21, 22, 25 – 28, 2016 at 7:30 pm and October 29 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Thank you Associate Producers and Theatre Circle Members Anne and Jim Bright for supporting this production.

Serenades on a Clear Night: Music of Schubert, Brahms, and Mendelssohn

Greg Geehern, Conductor

Several nineteenth-century composers presented their vocal and chamber works not in expansive concert halls, but in private salons and parlors. The Schubertiades, a series of intimate house concerts featuring the evocative music of Franz Schubert, were the forerunners of today’s cherished song recitals.

A young Felix Mendelssohn regularly entertained a host of fashionable guests in his family’s Berlin salon through his elegant chamber compositions and his prodigious performance skills.

Johannes Brahms, in a letter to his publisher, indicated that both his Liebeslieder and Neue Liebeslieder were suitable for Schubertiade-like house concerts.

These intimate spaces, and the fellowship that they engendered, prompted the composers to explore the similarly intimate themes of love, loss and the human being’s relationship to nature and the divine. Join the Bloomington Chamber Singers as we explore these themes through the vocal chamber music of Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms.
