Verdi: La traviata

Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind - at least not until now.

Heartbeat Opera Spring Festival

May 20-28 the acclaimed indie opera company Heartbeat Opera presents the world premiere of a daring new 90-minute adaptation of Puccini’s iconic romance, BUTTERFLY. The radically staged and re-orchestrated production (stripped down to a string quintet and harp) explodes the stereotype of Puccini’s tragic geisha, which has dominated the Western imagination for over a century. BUTTERFLY is presented as part of the third annual Spring Festival alongside Bizet’s CARMEN (May 21-28). General Admission is $35 ($50 premium, $15 Students) and can be purchased online at Baruch Performing Arts Center.

The Aspidistra Drawing Room Orchestra is an orchestra that specialises in the type of light classical music that is usually referred to as 'Palm Court Music' or 'Salon Music'. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries there was an enormous appeA concert of popular music from the beginning of the last century, performed in style by this authentic ensemble consisting of string quartet, piano, flute and oboe, praised for their lively interpretation of the genre.

The Aspidistra Drawing Room Orchestra started from very small beginnings: a group of friends and a folder of music. However, since the mid-1990s they have steadily expanded their repertoire, continually hunting for new material.

Aspidistra made their Radio debut when the BBC used some tracks from the Best of Palm Court as background music for the radio play 'Tears of War' on Remembrance Day 2002. Since then their recordings have been heard regularly on Brian Kay's light programme and as background music for other radio plays. Their music was also used for 'The Producer Prince', a TV documentary based on interviews with Prince Alessandro Tasca di Cuto, the son of an illustrious Sicilian family. Sadly, his father squandered the family fortunes and died penniless in 1927.
