Comedy Tonight

Ava Pine in the title role of Fort Worth Opera's Lysistrata, May 2012.

Lysistrata opened at Fort Worth Opera Saturday night: about the piece itself, obviously, I can hardly be objective, but I was utterly delighted with FWO’s elegant and knowing production and its winning cast.   Darren and his companies (he also leads the Seagle Young Artist program in northern New York) have been stalwart supporters of what I do—next month’s Little Women will be the fifth production he’s mounted of an opera of mine–so I’m particularly gratified that Lysistrata has been a substantial critical success (not unqualified, of course) for the company.
