Bard SummerScape & Bard Music Festival

Date/Time

Jun 27, 2014 to Aug 17, 2014

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

These two fests are joined at the hip. SummerScape presents seven weeks of music, theater, film, and cabaret performances, many of which tie directly into the theme of the Music Festival — which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year by lauding 19th-century Austrian composer Franz Schubert.

What’s new: For the first time in a century, Carl Maria von Weber’s opera Euryanthe is performed in the U.S., with soprano Ellie Dehn in the lead role (July 25, 27, 30; Aug. 1 & 3). A semistaged production of Schubert’s own opera, Fierrabras (Aug. 17) — along with other concerts, lectures, and special events — takes place as part of the Music Festival.

Be sure to: Experience the Spiegeltent. Avant-garde performer Justin Vivian Bond hosts weekend programs at this mirrored entertainment space, one of only a handful of these traveling tents still in use today. 845-758-7900; www.fishercenter.bard.edu/summerscape
