Union Avenue Opera presents Puccini’s La bohème

Four Performances: July 26, 27, August 2, 3 at 8:00 p.m.

Presented in Italian with English supertitles

Join the Bohemian Revolution in the heart of 19th-century Paris as a group of struggling artists strive to create beautiful art, find love, and ultimately live life to the fullest in this romantic operatic blockbuster. Rodolfo and his friends scrape by using their wit and charm to escape life’s harsher consequences until a chance encounter one winter night when Mimi asks Rodolfo to light her candle, changing everything and sending the pair into a deep, passionate whirlwind. At the same time, Marcello can’t resist the flirtatious charms of the feisty Musetta. Follow the triumphs and toils of this band of struggling young artists as they search for love, life, and laughter against impossible odds. For over 100 years, La bohème, Puccini’s most celebrated opera, has moved audiences to laughter and tears with its irresistible music and timeless tale. 

Ukrainian born soprano, Yulia Lysenko makes her UAO debut in the role of the ill-fated Mimi alongside Cree Carrico as Musetta in La bohème. Jesse Donner returns following his triumphant UAO debut as Ismaele in Verdi’s Nabucco last summer. Andrew Wannigman (Jigger, Carousel), Nicholas Ward(Pish-Tush, The Mikado) and Scott Levin (Pooh-Bah, The Mikado) also return to UAO as Marcello, Schaunard, and Alcindoro respectively while Isaiah Musik-Ayala makes his UAO debut as Colline.

Saunders Schultz (1927-2017) was a prominent St. Louis artist and among the founders of the concept of Architectural / Environmental Sculpture. He was cofounder of Scopia Studio with fellow St. Louisan William Severson (1924 - 1999), and contributed to nearly 300 monumental works over his career; these diverse sculptures are found throughout St. Louis, in 37 states, and around the world. 

This focused exhibition presents examples of drawings, paintings and sculpture that illustrate Schultz’s affinity for nature as his primary inspiration. The drawings and paintings in this exhibition reveal the complex ways in which Schultz captured the shapes of leaves, trees, flowing water, and in some cases capturing the concept of rushing air. Despite their small size, these pieces still convey the grace, complexity, and monumentality of the site-specific works for which Schultz is known.

The premise of the event is to foster unification between those who conduct research within academia and those who apply scientific concepts or sustainable practices within their businesses by highlighting the shared values of both our staff and a few local breweries that are leading the field in sustainability.

Guests will view demonstrations from NGRREC scientists on topics from amphibian and reptile conservation (including live animals), to soil science, to automated animal tracking devices, and more. 

Children are invited to participate in hands-on activities like looking at bugs under microscopes, decorating their own reusable tote bags and more at the Swarovski Waterschool Kids Corner. Guests can also check out NGRREC’s native landscaping and take a walk through the grounds and onto the green roof guided by a plant map with build-in scavenger hunt.

Local brewers will be present to talk about the ways in which the brewing industry can reduce their environmental impact without compromising the quality of their products. Participating breweries include The Old Bakery Beer Company, Schlafly Beer, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company and Blueprint Coffee. 

The event is free to attend, and no purchase is necessary to enjoy the science demonstrations, native gardens, free snacks, Swarovski Waterschool Kids Corner or to speak with brewers about sustainability in their industry. 

Anyone can purchase a commemorative glass for $3, but only those over the age of 21 will receive a wristband with their purchase. The wristband will allow guests to enjoy samples from local breweries that are leading the field in sustainable practices. NGRREC can accept credit card, check or cash, but no change will be available. Those planning to pay in cash, should have exact change.

Lost & Found

June 21-August 19, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 21, 2019

6 pm-8 pm

I scrounge the alleys, boarded-up buildings and vacant lots like an archeologist searching for buried treasure. The ghosts of a once thriving community have a story to tell before all memory of their existence is erased. My current studio practice involves assembling disparate elements, things that I scavenge and collect from the carnage that is now North St. Louis City. From these discarded materials I create my mixed-media assemblages. The materials I collect are from city streets and neighborhoods, a treasure trove of materials left behind for me to collect – wrought iron metal; rusty nuts, bolts, screws; ropes and chains; old broken tools; lots of wood, now burnt and rotten, that were once doors, window frames and decorative molding; and an abundance of bricks. I use these discarded objects to create art that tells a story about what we value and how we treat the people that once owned them.
