Thanks for your support!
We want to thank all supporters again for attending our theater parties and four shows during the 2013-14 season, including our 'Night in Florence with the Florentine Camerata,' which was called a "triumph" by our audience and "absolutely magnificent," "one of the best events in Palm Beach," "more than perfect," the "performances world-class." Look for us to repeat the Camerata as a special event next season. Barrie Ingham, of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Broadway and the London stage and star of the Guild's January production 'Keep Calm and Sing On,' had this to say about the Guild's 'Night in Florence with the Florentine Camerata': "One of the finest evenings of entertainment I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. The most perfectly wonderful evening. You did a great thing for the whole society of Palm Beach last night, something which pulled people together in an artistic way and a cultural way."
The Theater Guild's Florentine Camerata show on April 23 featured favorite opera arias and images and fashions of Renaissance Florence. We told the story of the invention of the art form of opera by 1600 in the gatherings of the group called the Florentine Camerata (an intriguing model for fostering the arts in our era), and opera singers sang selected arias from the centuries since. Our story included descriptions of performances at social occasions like the wedding of Marie de Medici to the King of France in 1600, for which the oldest surviving opera was composed. The inspirational history of the Camerata challenges us in gatherings and activities in our community to pursue culture and cosmopolitan entertaining in social and cultural settings that can foster the performing and theater arts.
