Debbie Daniels​ and ​Cathy Schoenberg; Recent Oil Paintings

  • Jun 20, 2016 at 3:44PM

These two artists, though at different stages of their careers, are not such different painters. Both Cathy & Debbie paint the subjects of their heart desires. Choosing the path of experimentation in her painting style, Deb initially painted in the style of super realism. Now in choosing to paint in the impressionistic style, Debbie turns her attention inland to reflect the rural scenes of island life. From docile, lazy cows to beloved horses and the fields where they reside, rural island life provides Deb much impetus to paint.

Greek Tragedy Meets Early 20th-Century in HD Opera

  • May 25, 2016 at 1:37PM

The final edition of the 2015-2016 The Met: Live in HD season presents Strauss's "Elektra" at San Juan Community Theatre on Sunday, May 29 at 2 p.m. . Elektra unites the commanding impact of Greek tragedy with the unsettling insights of early-20th-century Freudian psychology. The drama unfolds in a single act of rare vocal and orchestral power. Director Patrice Chéreau (From the House of the Dead) didn't live to see his great production, previously presented in Aix and Milan, make it to the stage of the Met. But his overpowering vision lives on with soprano Nina Stemme unmatched today in the heroic female roles of Strauss and Wagner, who portrays Elektra's primal quest for vengeance for the murder of her father, Agamemnon. Legendary mezzo-soprano Waltraud Meier is chilling as Elektra's fearsome mother, Klytämnestra. Soprano Adrianne Pieczonka and bass-baritone Eric Owens are Elektra's troubled siblings. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for SJCT members and $10 for student reserved. Tickets are at or at the SJCT Box Office: 378-3210.
