Selfies, Life + Death…

Recently, I attended a classmate’s unexpected funeral as we had been friends since high school. It was a sudden heart attack. No selfies were taken, only grief, and shared tears.

He was also a great supporter of my work and will be deeply missed, as have many teachers, family, colleagues and friends who have died very young from AIDS over my career and family members who generationally are all gone now. I have never taken a selfie because I cannot afford or own a smart phone. Some people would say I am very dumb because of this.

But I remember Susan Sontag’s great essays in her book ON PHOTOGRAPHY. I grew up with a haunting photo of my Mother’s Father who came to America from Italy whom I never met.

He died 11 years before I was born. His youngest child my Uncle died of lieukemia at about age 10. My Father lost his Father when he was 10 years old. There was memory but also silence.

My Italian side of my Family made annual and semi-seasonal trips to their grave to place flowers, wreaths or pray.

The Irish side of my Family never went.

My Grandmother died and later my parents were buried there in Queens as well. No one took a selfie as they did not yet exist.

There was a noble history in photography that we have now downgraded into self (ishness), self-promotion

and a web driven swamp.

We all think we are immortal…

All we really have is today.

The Kennedy Center etc.

The Kennedy Center with Janet Baker, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Claudio Abbado, Georg Solti, Herbert von Karajan the Deutsche Oper, Paris Opera and LaScala !

LaScala sang the Verdi Requiem by heart. Wieland Wagner’s LOHENGRIN by the Deutsche Oper !! Verdi’s MACBETH with Shirley Verrett, , and SIMON BOCCANEGRA; contrasted by Rossini’s CENERENTOLLA with the debut of Frederica Von Stade to LA BOHEME as clear as day decades later.

Jane Alexander and Richard Kiley’s in Ibsen’s MASTER BUILDER in repertory at the Eisenhower Theatre with Henry James’ WASHINGTON SQUARE.

Jason Robards and Zoe Caldwell in O’Neill’s LONG DAYS JOURNEY INTO NIGHT. Irene Worth and Christopher Walken in Williams’ SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH, John Wood in Stoppards’s TRAVESTIES; the U.S. Premiere of Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND with John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson in spellbinding synergy from the National Theatre.

These first-rate productions graced the Kennedy Center, under Roger Stevens tenure and several came to the Brooklyn Academy of Music as well.

Italian Music in America.

This program was at the Elmwood Park Municipal Building where Quinn spoke about La Scala and his time in Milano. His insider comments on Voices and LaScala from a backstage perspective were a highlight.

Quinn worked in Milan, Italy and loves doing Opera programs, or on Broadway for your audience. Newark has an illustrious Opera history from the retirement home of Maria Jeritza, to Beverly Sills in NORMA, Magda Olivero in TOSCA, and farewell recital’s by Roberta Peters, Franco Corelli, and Sills.

When Marilyn Horne lived in Orange she sang a concert performance with Henry Lewis of PRINCE IGOR. The Times could have lobbied for an Historic Site of Jeritza’s still standing estate as she frequented he Opera a Symphony Hall in Newark, as did Giovanni Martinelli, and even Imelda Marcos. Alfredo Silipigni devoted most of his career to the Opera in Newark, and made notable recordings of rarely heard opera’s by Mascagni and Leoncavallo as well.

Exits and Entrances includes chapters on history of Lyons, France and sister silk City Paterson, NJ. New Book Provides Behind-the-Scenes Look at 25 years Off-Broadway, Opera at LaScala, and Lyons including the Kennedy and Lincoln Centers as well as International Productions. Mr.Quinn has worked with first class writers and opera conductors including luminous names such as Frank McCourt and Claudio Abbado. Olympia Dukakis: on FANGS TO RICHES: “As a great many indictments of American culture…if performed w/gusto… it would have a strong impact….be an ideal project…for an audience.

Eyes open and shut 2021

Close your eyes and you will see clearly.
Cease to listen and you will hear Truth.
Be silent and your heart will sing.
Seek no contacts and you will find union.
Be still and you will move forward on the tide of the spirit.
Be gentle and you
will need no strength.
Be patient and you will achieve all things.
Be humble and you will remain entire.

Puccini, Maria Jeritza and me.

ArtsPRunlimited, Inc.
Since I was born in Newark, went to St Benedict’s Prep, and received a Certificate from Essex County College as Arts Editor of The Ecco, and Literary Editor of Shapes of Things. At Ramapo College I produced a Classical Concert Series featuring Emmanuel Ax; Fred Sherry; Ursula Oppens and Joyce Mathis when they were Young Concert Artists.
My career began after a dual degree from Intercultural Studies and Contemporary Arts at Ramapo College. I then went to grad school at the American University and worked at the Kennedy Center.
At LaScala I as a guest of Claudio Abbado in Milan, Italy. At the Kennedy Center as an usher I saw every performance of LaScala and the Paris Opera at the Kennedy Center. I was overwhelmed by their work. I also saw the Deutsche Oper premiere of Wieland Wagner’s LOHENGRIN there the previous year.
Later I was a guest of Aer Lingus as a producer at the Dublin Theatre Festival in Ireland, and guest directed THE GIGLI CONCERT in Rome. Subsequently I was a guest of French Cultural services in Lyon, France for my 5 year Festival with the City of Paterson.
My 25 year Off-Broadway Award winning career is detailed in Exits+Entrances (Amazon.com or B+N).com.
Opera and Concert Series could be dedicated to Maria Jeritza for NJPAC in 2019-20. Jeritza was a superstar at the Metropolitan, Vienna, Czech, + LaScala Opera Companies. Jeritza also premiered Opera’s by Puccini, Strauss, + Janacek. Jeritza also loved, lived, and retired, to her home in Newark NJ.
The New York Times noted in their obituary she was a star of Opera’s Golden Age in the 20th century. She was an Opera Diva, who lived, retired, and died In Newark in 1982 at 94. She attended and supported opera at The Mosque Theatre and Symphony Hall in Newark, NJ. Her appearances would generate instant applause at each performance with her blond hair and blue tinted glasses.
Homage to Maria Jeritza, who resided In Newark and made opera andmusic history in Brno, Newark, The Met, Vienna and inspired and workedwith Giacomo Puccini, Leos Janacek, and Richard Strauss in her career.,MARIA JERITZA, STAR OF OPERA’S ‘GOLDEN AGE,’ DIES AT 94 …
www.nytimes.com/1982/…/maria-jeritza-star-of-opera-s-golden-age-dies-at-94 .- Maria Jeritza, the internationally renowned soprano who has beencalled … Miss Jeritza was one of the great artists of opera’s”golden age,” (1887-1982) longtime resident of Newark,NJ who sang for Richard Strauss, Leos Janacek, and GiacomoPuccini :Premiere’s at the Met, Vienna, Brno, LaScala in her illustrious career in Europe and the United States.

Richard Strauss wrote 4 Last Songs (and one last song for Maria(Jeritza ) who retired to Newark after her international opera careerfrom Vienna to The Met.
Puccini loved Jeritza as his favorite TOSCA. Maria started thetradition of Tosca laying prone on the floor to sing “Vissi d’arte.”Jeritza premiered Janacek’s JENUFA among other highlights from Brno,Vienna and Milan. Her legendary musical soirees occurred at her homein North Newark. It should be an Historic Site and turned into a OperaMuseum while it still stands though now in private hands. Her postretirement appearances at The Met and Symphony Hall (formerly theMosque Theatre) garnered a rash of applause from the opera audience.

Newark Then + Now is a reclamation of my grandfathers journey from Italy to Newark in 1899. Newark has artistic roots from Armenia, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, France and beyond. Immigration is a ongoing event. The past is indeed prologue to our present and future.

Welcome to my Newark, Nevarca and the new old sod in New Jersey. Daniel P Quinn also wrote:”Exits + Entrances, 25 years off-Broadway, Opera and Beyond”; Short Plays to Long Remember (TNT) and “organized labor”: Organized Labor, Poems with Grit and Passion, (Author House)

As a member of three labor unions, and I really enjoyed Daniel P Quinn’s collection of poems, Organized Labor. Mr. Quinn’s use of language and imagery paints a picture of an era that hardly exists anymore. His poems also touch on topics that we all face today in an ever-changing global society. If you like poems that are alive with truth and deep emotional observation, you will enjoy the poems of this man who sees the world in a highly unique fashion. Web review by Davidson Garrett, Author. Poet.

Proclamation by Gov. Michael S. Dukakis on Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Memorial Day in 1977.

WHEREAS: A half century ago next month, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts after being indicted, tried, and found guilty of murdering Alessandro Berardelli and Frederick A. Parmenter; and

WHEREAS: Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were Italian immigrants who lived and worked in Massachusetts while openly professing their beliefs in the doctrines of anarchism; and

WHEREAS: The atmosphere of their trial and appeals was permeated by prejudice against foreigners and hostility toward unorthodox political views; and

WHEREAS: The conduct of many of the officials involved in the case shed serious doubt on their willingness and ability to conduct the prosecution and trial of Sacco and Vanzetti fairly and impartially; and

WHEREAS: The limited scope of appellate review then in effect did not allow a new trial to be ordered based on the prejudicial effect of the proceedings as a whole; and

WHEREAS: This situation was later rectified as a direct result of their case by the adoption of Chapter 341 of the Acts of 1939, which permitted the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to order a new trial not merely because the verdict was contrary to the law, but also if it was against the weight of the evidence, contradicted by newly discovered evidence, or “for any other reason that justice may require”; and

WHEREAS: The people of Massachusetts today take pride in the strength and vitality of their governmental institutions, particularly in the high quality of their legal system; and

WHEREAS: They recognize that all human institutions are imperfect, that the possibility of injustice is ever-present, and that the acknowledgement of fault, combined with a resolve to do better, are signs of strength in a free society; and

WHEREAS: The trial and execution of Sacco and Vanzetti should serve to remind all civilized people of the constant need to guard against our susceptibility to prejudice, our intolerance of unorthodox ideas, and our failure to defend the rights of persons who are looked upon as strangers in our midst; and

WHEREAS: Simple decency and compassion, as well as respect for truth and an enduring commitment to our nations highest ideals, require that the fate of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti be-pondered by all who cherish tolerance, justice and human understanding; and

WHEREAS: Tuesday, August 23, 1977, will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Michael S. Dukakis, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, by virtue of the authority conferred upon me as Supreme Executive Magistrate by the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and by all other authority vested in me, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, August 23, 1977, “NICOLA SACCO AND BARTOLOMEO VANZETTI MEMORIAL DAY”; and declare, further, that any stigma and disgrace should be forever removed from the names of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, from the names of their families and descendants, and so, from the name of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; and I hereby call upon all the people of Massachusetts to pause in their daily endeavors to reflect upon these tragic events, and draw from their historic lessons the resolve to prevent the forces of intolerance, fear, and hatred from ever again uniting to overcome rationality, wisdom, and fairness to which our legal system aspires.

Given at the Executive Chamber in Boston, this nineteenth day of July in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and seventy-seven and of the independence of the United States of America the two hundred and first.

GOD SAVE THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS
