Neither Rhyme nor Reason premiere: The Boston Choral Ensemble

The Boston Choral Ensemble (Andrew Shenton, artistic director) will present the premiere of Neither Rhyme nor Reason at First Church Cambridge, MA, on May 13, 2016. The piece is the fruit my having won their annual Commission Competition last spring. The text is from As You Like It and presents Rosalind (as Ganymede) telling Orlando all the horrible things she will do to him to cure him of his love, all the while with ulterior motives. It is rife with archetypal Shakespearian double meaning, assumed identity, and young love.

Start: May 13, 2016 8:00 pm
End: May 13, 2016 10:00 pm
Venue: First Church, Cambridge
11 Garden St, Cambridge, MA, 02138, United States
