Delayed Performance Due to a Virus named corona. The virus has a solar allusion:
A corona (meaning “crown” in Latin derived from Ancient Greek κορώνη (korōnè, “garland, wreath”)) is an aura of plasma. Many stars share this concept surrounding our Sun. The Sun’s corona extends millions of miles into outer space. Solar eclipse, highlights it; but it is also observable with a coronagraph. Spectroscopy measurements indicate its strong ionization. Plasma temperature can be in excess of 1000000 kelvin, That makes it a lot hotter than the surface of the Sun.
Our Delayed Performance was about Cleopatra
Co-incidentally, Cleopatra wore a crown. This, as stated, is the Latin meaning of “corona”. She was the ruler of Egypt. Cleopatra in turn reforms Octavian who will wear the crown as the enlightened ruler of Rome. In his transformation, he becomes Augustus Caesar. Our opera is about their crucial historical meeting.
Cleopatra seems to have her own timing and her own way. As soon as it rescheduled, we will send out notifications. We are simply waiting for the corona fuss to clear up. Then we will reschedule her with a date and place. We already had a staged reading in New York late last August. Our poster, pictured above, relates to the Glenridge Performing Arts Center. Below is a fun internal link. It is about our opera:
