After joining the staff at a school for the deaf, speech therapist with an unorthodox approach to education, James, played by Joshua Jackson, becomes infatuated by Sarah, a vivacious, yet delicate, deaf woman, played by Lauren Ridloff. James tries to help Sarah, a school dropout, navigate her way through the hearing world, however Sarah finds solace in her sphere of silence.

Gt. Barrington, MA–Boston Early Music Festival presents Pergolesi’s La Serva Padrona & Livietta e Tracollo @ Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center

IMPORTANT TICKET INFORMATION:
Not finding the seats you are looking for?   Tickets for this event are also available for purchase directly through Boston Early Music Festival.  Visit BEMF.org or call (617) 661-1812

Humor and love abound as the BEMF Chamber Opera Series presents a double bill of Neapolitan comic opera—Pergolesi`s La serva padrona and Livietta e Tracollo.

These delightfully witty masterpieces come to life in an intimate chamber production led by GRAMMY-winning Musical Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed Stage Director Gilbert Blin. Originally written as interludes during productions with a more sober tone, Pergolesi’s comedies enchanted audiences with their side-splitting humor and engaging romance. La serva padrona tells the tale of a cunning maid who conspires to win the heart of her testy employer, while in Livietta e Tracollo, a duplicitous con artist meets his match in a peasant woman plotting his comeuppance to avenge her brother.

This lively staging is an encore of BEMF’s 2014 production that The Boston Globe hailed for its “zest and earthy opulence.”

Norfolk, CT–Emerging Artists Showcase @ Ellen Battell Stoeckel Estate
Jun 30 @ 7:30 pm

Music in Norfolk has a long and vibrant history, dating back Catch a rising star as the Festival presents its Emerging Artists Showcase — performances by summer Fellows of the Yale School of Music attending Norfolk’s New Music Workshop and Chamber Music Session. These casual concerts are in the Music Shed and are free of charge.

Throughout the years Norfolk audiences have heard hundreds of emerging artists who have gone on to successful professional careers. Norfolk alumni perform with the most illustrious musical organizations in the world: the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, the Saint Lawrence, Calder, Muir, Miró, Ying, Brentano, Shanghai, Maia and Jasper String Quartets; the Claremont and Eroica Trios; and new music ensembles such as eighth blackbird and SŌ PERCUSSION. Syoko Aki, Claude Frank, Pamela Frank, Frederica von Stade and Richard Stoltzman are all former students of Norfolk.

Under the direction of composer Martin Bresnick, Norfolk’s acclaimed New Music Workshop invites composers and instrumentalists to study the dynamics of taking a piece from a composer’s imagination to the performance hall. The Workshop culminates in a performance featuring world premieres performed by the Norfolk Contemporary Ensemble led by conductor Julian Pellicano.to the 1890s when Ellen Battell and her husband Carl Stoeckel, son of the Yale School of Music’s first professor, founded the Litchfield County Choral Union.  Upon her death in 1939, Ellen Battell Stoeckel left her estate in a private trust with instructions that the facilities be used for Yale University’s summer music school, ensuring an enduring artistic legacy. The Yale Summer School of Music – Norfolk Chamber Music Festival has a dual teaching/performance purpose. Audiences from around the country come to northwest Connecticut to hear world-class artists.

Over the years, while Norfolk has become a symbol of quality in chamber music performance and professional study, thousands have enjoyed the picturesque environment of the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Estate and the excellence of one of America’s most distinguished musical traditions.
