When Australian composer Brett Dean’s Hamlet had its world premiere at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2017, The Guardian declared, “New opera doesn’t often get to sound this good … Shakespeare offers a gauntlet to composers that shouldn’t always be picked up, but Dean’s Hamlet rises to the challenge.” Now, this riveting contemporary masterpiece arrives at the Met, with Neil Armfield, who directed the work’s premiere, bringing his acclaimed staging to New York. Many of the original cast members have followed, including tenor Allan Clayton in the title role. Nicholas Carter makes his Met debut conducting a remarkable ensemble, which also features soprano Brenda Rae as Ophelia, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly as Gertrude, baritone Rod Gilfry as Claudius, and legendary bass John Tomlinson as the ghost of Hamlet’s father.

The Foundry Day Committee has concluded reluctantly that it will not be able to hold the Foundry Day Arts & Crafts Festival for 2021. Even though the maximum occupancy limit for outdoor gatherings has increased to 20%, it does not permit the level of attendance needed to create a meaningful festival for either attendees or craftsmen. We will miss seeing everyone in June. Stay safe until we meet again in 2022!

In recent seasons, soprano Nadine Sierra has brought down the house at the Met with virtuosic vocalism and captivating stage presence as Gilda in Rigoletto, Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, and Ilia in Idomeneo. Now, she takes on one of the repertory’s most formidable and storied roles, the haunted heroine of Lucia di Lammermoor, in an electrifying new staging by in-demand Australian theater and film director Simon Stone, conducted by Riccardo Frizza. Show-stopping tenor Javier Camarena adds to the bel canto fireworks as Lucia’s beloved, Edgardo, with baritone Artur Rucinski as her overbearing brother, Enrico, and bass Matthew Rose as her tutor, Raimondo.

Make your own 9” square stained glass panel. This class is especially for those students who have already taken a copper foil class in the past year, however, if you are new to stained glass we can accommodate you too. This class will be spread over 3 weeks, 2 hrs. each evening to allow for the time to complete this larger panel. Four different patterns will be available and you will learn all the steps (pattern copying, choosing/cutting glass, foiling and soldering to finish) to make a panel of your own, leaving the last class with a panel ready to hang. If you choose the pattern with the “P”, we can modify the pattern to accommodate a letter or number of your choosing. All supplies and tools will be provided.
