trueSUFFRAGE From trueTHEATRE Going Online July 23rd

TRUE_logoFriends,

We sincerely hope all of you are safe and healthy and your friends and loved ones are, as well. Our Board Members and volunteers at True Theatre are healthy and getting by and looking forward to sharing some more stories with you!

Status of our next main-stage show:

While we seem to be on the precipice of some events being held “in-person” again (with social-distancing and other precautions in place), there has also been a lot of news about cases of COVID-19 spiking (particularly in Hamilton County). It is for your (and our and our storytellers) comfort and safety that we have opted  to hold our next show, trueSUFFRAGE (Thursday, July 23rd, 7:30PM), as scheduled, but entirely online.

trueSUFFRAGE celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution — which states that the “right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex” — by being entirely dedicated to stories of female empowerment. Be prepared to be moved and inspired!

As with our last show, trueFAKES, which you can still watch at https://youtu.be/NOMi1cZeWL0, the show will broadcast live via Zoom (webinar format) and Facebook Live the show will be FREE.

The first 100 to register for the Zoom event will be able to take part in a poll which will affect our next season (so you definitely want to be in the Zoom audience, if you can!)
The show will be view-able after the fact, as well. In fact, because you are on our mailing list or are a current ticket-holder for trueSUFFRAGE, you are the first to be able to register for the Zoom event!

Register now by visiting: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_D-aWRKy_RzqkvKRQwRiNCw

Those of you who have already purchased tickets to trueSUFFRAGE (including subscription holders) will have the option to get a refund. We did not offer ticket-holders from our last show the option to donate the cost of their ticket to True Theatre, but some of you generously did that, anyway, so we have pre-arranged to make that possible this time, as well. NOTE: if you do nothing by close-of-business on Thursday, July 16 (one week before the show), a refund of your ticket(s) will be submitted. To expedite your refund or to donate the cost of your tickets, please contact the Memorial Hall box office during their normal business hours (Tuesday through Friday, 1-6pm at 513.977.8838).

Another alternative, if you are interested in donating your ticket-cost back to True Theatre, email dave@truetheatre.org and say so. We’ll coordinate the rest with the box office.

And for those of you who won, earned, or were otherwise gifted a ticket to trueSUFFRAGE, know that we will honor those tickets at a future show and will touch base with you about using those tickets as we near Season 11.

And what about Season 11?
As is our custom, we hope to announce details about our next season at our last show of this season, so there’s another reason to join us as we live-stream trueSUFFRAGE on July 23rd!

Stay true!

Thank you for your continued support of Community-building through the sharing of true, personal stories and True Theatre.

Even over the Internet, we believe that live-streaming of stories can break down walls and build bridges between people and that is why we cannot wait to bring you trueSUFFRAGE on July 23rd!

Stay healthy, stay connected, and stay true.

KSO Safely Navigates the Summer of 2020 with Distanced Performances in the Park

KSO_Purple logoThe Kentucky Symphony Orchestra moves its 26th Summer Series of free family-friendly programming to the Tower Park amphitheater in Fort Thomas, KY. Adhering to Kentucky’s “Health at Work” guidelines, the KSO’s three socially-distanced (on-stage and off) performances will return musicians to work and offer Northern Kentucky residents a return to a safe semblance of tradition.

At a unique time in history, the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra cautiously moves outdoors with its 26th free summer series at the beautiful amphitheater at Tower Park in Fort Thomas, KY. The KSO’s last performance was March 12, after which four scheduled programs and events were canceled due to the pandemic. The KSO eagerly anticipated the Summer, where the ability to physically distance on the lawn and on-stage (with smaller resources), during sunny, warm weather, offered opportunities for all. Providing varying degrees of PPE for volunteers, staff and attendees, together with individual personal responsibility, the KSO and the City of Fort Thomas saw the summer series as a guarded way for musicians to return to work, while providing a safe semblance of tradition and normalcy for residents, as we collectively find our way forward.

In compliance with Kentucky’s June 29, 2020 Healthy at Work Requirements, the KSO and City of Fort Thomas have taken extra measures to ensure the safety and well-being of its musicians, staff, volunteers and audience members. KSO General Manager, Angela Williamson, is coordinating directly with the City of Fort Thomas Recreation Department to meet current public health guidelines.

For those considered to be at risk (health/age), or are sick/exposed can watch on Facebook Live. Seniors are also invited to attend the morning dress rehearsals in the park. Those planning to attend the performance are strongly urged to register on-line, observe distance postings and instructions, don masks as you share close proximity with others and pack your hand sanitizer. The KSO and its guest artists will handle the music, nostalgia and quality entertainment.

For 25 Summers the KSO performed at the WPA-built bandshell in Devou Park. With COVID-19 projections and guidelines evolving and uncertain, Covington city officials thought it best not to host the series at Devou Park this Summer. The KSO, in its efforts to safely employ its talented musicians, turned to Fort Thomas, which after deliberation, agreed to permit these three safe, distanced activities for its residents.

KSO 2020 Summer Series at Tower Park

Swingin’ Cirque Revue
(KSO meets Circus Mojo)
7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 11, 2020

The KSO and Ludlow’s Circus Mojo first teamed-up in 2010 to bring high-wire acts, jugglers and hi-jinx to the Symphony. Ten year’s later they are back together with the orchestra’s 10-pc. swing group (The Devou-Doo Daddies), performing the high-energy 1990s swing revival music of The Squirrel Nut Zippers, Royal Crown Revue and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and more. “Hey Pachuco” — What other symphony would combine zany high-flying acts with Swing? (Full playlist attached)

“The Band Played On”
(An Old-Fashioned Band Concert)
7:30 p.m. Saturday, August 8, 2020

100 years ago towns used to gather in the Summer to hear their own local or national touring concert band perform at the bandshell or gazebo. Most wind, brass and percussion players of today’s symphony orchestras started their careers via middle and high-school band programs, playing the warhorse works penned in the early to mid 20th century. Current band students and teachers are invited to experience their musical heritage. The KSO’s wind ensemble re-creates this nostalgic setting and sound, with cornet soloist Michael Mergen from the “President’s Own” Marine Corps Band. (Full playlist attached)

Pop-pourri
(Pop hits for Boomers to Centennials)
7:30 p.m. Saturday, September 5, 2020

The KSO’s 21-pc. studio orchestra with vocalists — The KSO Boogie Band — has covered some of the most popular radio hits of the past seven decades. With 300 charts in its repertoire (adapted by arranger Terry LaBolt), the group this Labor Day weekend offers nostalgic hits for all generations attending, including chart toppers from Patsy Cline to Camila Cabello and The Beach Boys to Bruno Mars. Be ready to dance, sing along and toe-tap to music of your youth (1950s-2010s), and say — so long to Summer.

“The circumstances of the last few months have made us all understand how simple gatherings and traditions, like sharing a nostalgic and cultural moment together, are quite fragile and can be lost to significant threats and fears. We hope that those who can attend will take precautions to protect their families and citizens, as well as the right to assemble at a distance.” — James Cassidy, KSO Music Director.

The KSO appreciates the generous support of the following local corporate sponsors: St. Elizabeth Health Care, Fischer Homes, Duke Energy, Schneller & Knochelmann, The Milburn Family and the Wohlgemuth-Herschede Foundations, and the City of Fort Thomas for hosting the KSO’s 2020 free series of family-friendly and safe summer programs.

Join the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. — July 11, August 8 and September 5. Food trucks will be on-site. Bring blankets, picnics or lawn chairs. For more information, registration and directions, visit the KSO at http://www.kyso.org or call (859) 431-6216. $5 (per person) suggested donation. Free parking in Tower Park (though it is limited).

For 29 seasons the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra has taken the “phony” out of symphony by eliminating traditional barriers and presenting engaging, live, thematic concerts that enrich, educate and entertain the residents of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. The KSO performs three series of concerts annually throughout Northern Kentucky.

CINCINNATI, OH—June 25, 2020—Cincinnati Opera and CET have announced plans for Cincinnati Opera at 100, an hour-long televised program commemorating Cincinnati Opera’s centennial. Featuring insights from local and national opera experts and performances by artists from across the country, Cincinnati Opera at 100 will premiere on CET 48.1 on Friday, July 3 at 9 p.m. EST. Additional airings will follow on CET Arts 48.3 through Tuesday, July 7.

The nation’s second-oldest opera company, Cincinnati Opera presented its first performance on June 27, 1920, at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, and its annual Summer Festival has become a beloved Cincinnati arts-going tradition. Though the company’s 100th Anniversary Season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Cincinnati Opera at 100 transports the opera-going experience into viewers’ homes, including performances by much-loved singers from recent Cincinnati Opera productions and historical highlights from opera experts. Performances take place from the artists’ homes as well as iconic locations throughout the city, including the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Cincinnati Music Hall, and other surprise venues.

“In this extraordinary year, we’re honored to partner with CET to tell the story of this ‘opera company that could,’” said Christopher Milligan, The Harry Fath General Director & CEO of Cincinnati Opera. “Our first 100 years are rich with memorable moments, remarkable people and partnerships, and a deeply devoted audience whose enthusiasm is truly inspiring. Cincinnati Opera at 100 is a love letter to all who have made this company what it is today.”

Major support for Cincinnati Opera at 100 has been provided by Monteverdi Tuscany, a luxury boutique hotel centrally located between Rome and Florence, founded by Cincinnati Opera board member Michael L. Cioffi. The celebration of the arts and humanities is central to the Monteverdi Tuscany experience, and the hotel regularly presents performances by some of opera’s most distinguished artists.

“A founding philosophy of Monteverdi Tuscany is that beauty, art and music are fundamental to our nature as human beings, and remain now, as much as ever, integral to us all,” said Cioffi. “We are thrilled to be a part of such an extraordinary moment of Cincinnati Opera’s distinguished history.”

“Michael is a visionary and a great fan of opera and Italian culture,” continued Milligan. “When we shared with him our idea of a televised centennial celebration with singers across Cincinnati and from their homes across the country, he was immediately inspired. It is his support and the sponsorship from Monteverdi Tuscany that has made this program possible.”

Cincinnati Opera and 90.9 WGUC Present Summer Series of Opera Radio Broadcasts

CO_Opera and Public Radio logosThrough June and July, Cincinnati’s classical public radio station celebrates Cincinnati Opera’s 100th anniversary with a special series of encore performances

CINCINNATI, OH—Though Cincinnati Opera performances have been cancelled this summer, a special partnership with 90.9 WGUC will bring opera to fans all season long.

The nation’s second-oldest opera company, Cincinnati Opera presented its first performance on June 27, 1920, and its annual Summer Festival has become a beloved Cincinnati arts-going tradition. On the occasion of the Opera’s 100th birthday, 90.9 WGUC will launch a series of encore presentations of some of the company’s most memorable productions from summers past. This special series will be broadcast both on-air and online each Saturday at 1 p.m. EST beginning June 27, 2020 and will continue through July 25, 2020.

The June 27 kickoff opens with an hourlong program titled “Cincinnati Opera’s Beginnings,” hosted by Evans Mirageas, The Harry T. Wilks Artistic Director of Cincinnati Opera. Mirageas will interweave history and musical excerpts to chronicle the creation of the company.

“When we realized our stages would be dark this summer, we knew we couldn’t let our big birthday go by without some sort of celebration,” said Mirageas. “The operas featured in this series represent some of our most extraordinary productions from recent seasons. We’re so grateful to our partners at 90.9 WGUC for keeping the music going!”

Continued Mirageas, “These encore performances are also being presented with the kind cooperation of Local 1, the Cincinnati chapter of the American Federation of Musicians, and the American Guild of Musical Artists.”

“We value our relationship with Cincinnati Opera and regret that their 100th Anniversary season had to be cancelled. I’m happy that WGUC can ensure summertime opera to Greater Cincinnati fans and music lovers with these encore broadcasts. We’re looking forward to experiencing these classic performances with everyone on Saturday afternoons,” said Richard Eiswerth, President and CEO of Cincinnati Public Radio, home of 90.9 WGUC.

CINCINNATI OPERA SUMMER BROADCASTS ON WGUC 90.9
Event Schedule (all times are EST):

Saturday, June 27

  • 1 pm: “Cincinnati Opera’s Beginnings” featuring Evans Mirageas
    • Cincinnati has had a love affair with opera since the early 1800s, not long after the city was founded. Mirageas will chronicle the rich—and sometimes hilarious—history of opera in the Queen City and the events that led to the creation of Cincinnati Opera in 1920.

    • Originally performed in 2002 at Cincinnati Music Hall

      Music by Richard Strauss; libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal
      Sebastian Weigle, conductor; Nicholas Muni, stage director
      Featuring Anja Silja, Deborah Polaski, Inga Nielsen, Robert Hale, Kenneth Garrison

      Description:
      Based on the tragedy by Sophocles, Strauss’s Elektra traces the emotional struggles of its title character, a young woman whose father has been killed by her mother and her mother’s paramour. Elektra obsessively plots to avenge her father’s death, but upon its achievement is herself destroyed. The 2002 presentation marked the company’s first-ever production of the work and featured a star-studded cast.

Saturday, July 4

  • 1 p.m. Encore broadcast of La Bohème
  • Originally performed in 2017 at the Aronoff Center for the Arts

    Music by Giacomo Puccini; libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa

    Description:
    For more than a century, Puccini’s most celebrated opera, La Bohème, has moved audiences to tears with its sweeping score of gorgeous melodies and timeless tale of young lovers in Paris. Cincinnati Opera presented this co-production with English National Opera. Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Music Director Louis Langrée conducted, becoming only the third sitting CSO music director to conduct his orchestra for Cincinnati Opera.

    Description:
    Offenbach’s one true opera, first performed in 1881, vaulted him into the realms of great operatic composers. A fantastic tale about a poet and the fates of his three true loves, The Tales of Hoffmann is, in many ways, a dark comedy, though it is flavored with an abundance of gorgeous musical moments.

    Music by Gregory Spears; libretto by Greg Pierce

    Description:
    Cincinnati Opera presented the world premiere of Fellow Travelers during its 2016 Summer Festival. Based on the 2007 novel by Thomas Mallon, Fellow Travelers takes place in 1950s Washington, D.C., and follows Timothy Laughlin, a recent college graduate and devout Catholic eager to join the crusade against Communism. A chance encounter with a handsome State Department official, Hawkins Fuller, leads to Tim’s first job in D.C. and—after Fuller’s advances—his first love affair. As McCarthy makes a desperate bid for power and investigations focus on “sexual subversives,” Tim struggles to reconcile his political convictions, his love for God, and his love for Fuller—an entanglement that will end in a stunning act of betrayal.

    Rebellion is brewing at Egypt’s borders. Aida, an Ethiopian princess and prisoner of war, finds herself in love with her captor, and he with her. When he is commissioned to lead a battle against her people, Aida is torn between her love for him and for her country. The grandest of all operatic masterpieces, Verdi’s beloved Aida is infused with gorgeous melodies, bringing ancient Egypt to life through music such as the iconic “Triumphal March.”
