15 – 3/8  AMERICAN GLITCH
An exhibition of images captured from moving cars and trains using an iPhone.
ALAN SKEES, Christopher Newport University, VA
American Regionalism arose in popularity in the 1930’s in the grip of the Great Depression. Now, over 80 years later, our country is struggling to release itself from financial turmoil, and once again entrenched in a “Nostalgia or Future” argument with itself.
“In this series, I’m venturing out into the land seeking the same romantic reassuring images, and rarely finding these nostalgic glimpses. I find the fingerprint of technology, corporations, industrialization, and sprawling urbanization… and I embrace it.
Armed with technology: cell phones, gps, digital cameras, apps, I scan the landscape at high speed, blasting music, sampling rough pixel data of whatever flashes by, aware of my own perception of the world viewed through a tiny screen. Firing it off into the digital aether that surrounds us all with a push of a button.”

6 – 8  SUOR ANGELICA and TROUBLE IN TAHITI
Giacomo Puccini and Leonard Bernstein
The Opera Ensemble offers an evening with two very different one-act operas.
“Suor Angelica” (Sister Angelica) is the second opera in a trilogy of one-act operas known as “Il trittico” by Giacomo Puccini.  This one-act opera is set in the 17th century and tells the story of Sister Angelica who has been shamed by her family and forced into a convent after giving birth out of wedlock.
“Trouble in Tahiti” is a chamber opera with both story and music composed by Leonard Bernstein in 1951. Written in a style reminiscent of his Broadway scores, the opera begins with a jazz trio (which remains present to make commentary throughout the opera) singing the glories of married life in suburbia. But in contrast to the trio, the opera turns its focus onto the domestic conflict of Sam, a self-centered businessman, and Dinah, his unhappy housewife. Trouble in Tahiti” delivers an unflinching critique of American materialism.  The story is both witty and poignant and the music is modern and jazzy.  The two combine to make an interesting and uncommon opera.
