Over 90 musicians take the Cape Symphony stage for Opera Without Words.

Over 90 musicians take the Cape Symphony stage for Opera Without Words.

  • Barnstable Performing Arts Center at Barnstable High School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Over 90 musicians will take the Cape Symphony stage for Opera Without Words. Before movies, opera was the grand stage where stories were told. With its mythic battle between the forces of good and evil, an inspiration for modern heroic sagas like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, Wagner’s epic cycle The Ring requires an enormous orchestra to support the larger-than-life music. 
Another dramatic tale, Bizet’s Carmen shocked audiences by telling a gritty tale of passion and jealousy. In Waxman’s “Carmen Fantasie,” the violin is Carmen, and international star Ji-Hae Park embodies her fiery virtuosity. The overture from Rossini’s comic farce The Silken Ladder provides levity amidst the drama. The orchestra is the diva in this extraordinary event!

Cape Cod Maritime Museum presents “Shipwrecks of Cape Cod: a talk with historian Don Wilding”

On Sunday, January 27 at 2:00 pm in our Community Room, as part of our Sunday afternoon lecture series, join noted historian, author and filmmaker Don Wilding for his presentation of some of the greatest shipwrecks and rescues of Cape Cod’s outer beaches. His talk narrows in on the earliest days of the U.S. Lifesaving Service (1872) to the early years of the U.S. Coast Guard in the first half of the 20th century, focusing on notorious shipwrecks including the Italian bark Castagna (1914), the Canadian schooner Montclair (1927), and the British ship Jason (1893), in which 25 men perished.

An award-winning writer and editor for Massachusetts newspapers for over 30 years, Don pens the popular “Shore Lore”history column for Orleans’s Cape Codder newspaper, and is the author of two books, Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: how The Outermost House inspired a National Seashore, and A brief history of Eastham: on the Outer Beach of Cape Cod. A co-founder of the nonprofit Henry Beston Society of Cape Cod, Don is also an instructor of Cape Cod history courses for the Open University of Wellfleet and Nauset Community Education. He’s been a public speaker on the Cape for more than 15 years.

In 2018, Cape Cod Maritime Museum and Wood Boat Shop celebrated its 20th anniversary of preserving, protecting and promoting the maritime history and tradition of wood boat building on Cape Cod. The museum offers permanent and rotating exhibits, interactive maritime-themed activities and a fine arts gallery. The Cook Boat Shop is a working exhibit space for traditional and contemporary wood boat building and includes restoration projects on historic Cape Cod water craft. The Historic Wood Boat Shed holds the only collection of all wooden boats native to Cape Cod. The museum is also home to“Sarah,” a Crosby catboat replica, and a gift shop featuring unique and beautiful maritime themed gifts, books and apparel.

Food from a Christmas Carol

"The moment Scrooge's hand was on the lock, a strange voice called him by his name, and bade him enter. He obeyed. It was his own room. There was no doubt about that. But it had undergone a surprising transformation... Heaped up on the floor, to form a kind of throne, were turkeys, geese, game, poultry, brawn, great joints of meat, sucking-pigs, long wreaths of sausages, mince-pies, plum-puddings, barrels of oysters, red-hot chestnuts, cherry-cheeked apples, juicy oranges, luscious pears, immense twelfth-cakes, and seething bowls of punch, that made the chamber dim with their delicious steam..."

A week to go, all the lists have been mailed, preparations are still being made so let's enjoy a brief respite from all of it. We will dine on oysters, suckling pig, goose and cheeses!! Wash it down with holiday bubbles and Bordeaux!!

Topics include: 

How to pitch your novel/screenplay/story collection
How to submit to agents, magazines, and editors
How to market your writing
How to write a catchy synopsis
The steps to publishing novels and memoirs
Dealing with rejection
How to edit your work, and much more!

The Dreaded Question What is your book about? Every author will have to answer that question sooner or later. It’s best to be prepared. How you hook a reader is how you hook an agent, a publisher, a producer, and so on. What does high-concept mean and why does the market want it? What is an elevator pitch? From personal experiences at the Cannes Film Festival to concrete advice on how to write a catchy synopsis, Daniel Presley will speak about how best to answer the dreaded question.

The Long Game of Short Work The road to a published novel or memoir often begins with the publication of short work. Not only to capture an agent’s attention and assemble a body of work, but also to practice and benefit from feedback. From the submission process and dealing with rejection to social interaction and self-promotion, Claire Polders will speak about how to find your place in the writers’ community.

An Evening with Tom Rush and Matt Nakoa

A music legend the world over, singer-songwriter and folk rock pioneer Tom Rush brings his unique brand of blues-influenced folk/rock music to Cotuit. As a founding father of the folk rock genre, he's been credited with launching the careers of Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Jackson Browne. From his early days at Club 47, through 16 albums, to his sold out Club 47 concert series, Rush is known not only for his own wonderfully written songs filled with healthy doses of both folk and blues influences but also for supporting and recording those of emerging artists such as Mitchell, Eric von Schmidt and Eric Kaz. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists.

Matt Nakoa’s first solo album, Light In The Dark (2012), is an eclectic pop opus. In contrast, A Dozen Other Loves (2014), explores a simple acoustic palette. This intimate collection has earned many songwriting awards, including a win at Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New Folk Competition. Additionally, Matt’s piano music has received favorable reviews in publications including The New York Times, and his film scoring has been featured by Disney. Matt now tours internationally, recently performing at The White House, throughout India, and regularly with folk music icon Tom Rush.
