Rovno Gubernya and the Vienna Woods

I was not born in sunny Hispania,

My father came from Rovno Gubernya.

But now I’m here, I’m dancing a tang0!

Di dee di! Dee di dee di!

I am easily assimilated.

I am so easily assimilated.

(Candide: The Old Lady)

And, as if rehearsals for Candide and Alcina weren’t enough, we’re thick into preparations for Steven Blier’s next recital, Tales from the Vienna Woods. We’ve had a few requests for program detail, and it’s not yet available on the Wolf Trap website, so here ’tis.
