For the second (and final!) time this summer, our artists engage in a musical dialogue with paintings from The Phillips Collection. Tomorrow (Thursday 6/18) at 1:00pm, baritone Daniel Billings and pianist Michael Baitzer treat Wolf Trap staff and guests to a mini-recital inspired by the likes of Renoir, Hartley, Manet, Degas, and Hopper. Songs of Tchaikovsky, Copland and Barber take the stage along with traditional spirituals and a dose of Sinatra.
This weekend, it’s onto the stage for the beginning of tech week for Cosi fan tutte. We’ll integrate sets, costumes, hair & makeup, lights, and orchestra in a dizzying 72 hours. I’ll report from the trenches.
