Troika was invited by the New York State Council on the Arts to perform for the Alliance of New York State Arts Organizations conference in Ithaca this October. Excerpts of Luonnotar (see page 2) were showcased. Dan Booth’s video, commissioned for the piece, was projected behind the dancers.
Troika and CRS Barn performers were involved with From The Horse’s Mouth, a live, dance/theater documentary created by New York City choreographers Jamie Cunningham and Tina Croll and presented Nov. 4 at The Clemens Center in Elmira. Performers included Saga Ambegaokar, Jill Becker, Sarah Jane Burton, Donna Davenport, Jeanne Goddard and Susan Roebuck. Organized by Lois Welk, the large cast also included Arthur Aviles, Pat Cannon, Santo Giglio, Paul Gordon and others.
Baritones Steve Stull and Aaron Nicholson alternated in the title role of Tri-Cities Opera’s production of The Barber of Seville. Peter Sicilian (an Opera Cowpoke) was the stage director and Jeanne Goddard was the choreographer. Steve took over for Tim LeFebvre who was working on San Francisco Opera’s premiere of Dead Man Walking.
Steve Stull and Linda Larson will be performing for
Ithaca Opera New Year’s Eve Gala .
