[Les Illuminations de Rimbaud]

This weekend I was fortunate to be included in a new production of Schumann's Dichterliebe and Britten's Les Illuminations at the Mile Square Theater in collaboration with Premiere Productions at Zen Space Studios.  While Brian Holman, pianist and I performed Les Illuminations, artist Rufino Jimenez improvised a large charcoal drawing on stage left. Then Byron Singleton sang Dichterliebe and was joined on stage by several incredible dancers, including choreographer/ director Kristen Mangione. I'm thrilled to say that we will be taking this production to other venues in the future!
