danielpquinn684 | Newark, NJ Revamping all the Founders Memorials, Lincoln, and Columbus would be a better bet than tearing them all down. The Smithsonian, Library of Congress, NEA and NEH with the Park service could make this happen. In DC on F St Ford’s Theatre was restored in the 1960’s. The Lincoln Annex Museum built in the last few years could models of inclusion not destruction. What would happen if people call for destroying all the Mall Museum’s ? The decapitated statute of St. John’s Cathedral in Lyon, France still bear witness to the frenzy of the French Revolution. We have to ameliorate history or we destroy ourselves.
Opera Daily 🎶 — Manon Lescaut Opera Daily Sep 11 44Today we’re listening to…“In quelle trine morbide,” a soprano aria from Act II of the four-act Italian opera Manon Lescaut by Giacomo Puccini. As I mentioned on Wednesday, we are moving to more formalized themes on Monday, so I decided I would take my last opportunity to go rogue and bring back Read →
Daniel P QuinnSep 11Liked by Opera DailySaw Leontyne Price do MANON LESCAUT in a dreadful 1949 production at The Met about 1980. She made the best of it in a production that had become threadbare over 31 years. The Met has rough nights like this not to mention Martin Rich conducting TOSCA in 1970.Who you might ask was he ? 2ReplyDelete

Opportunity for THE MASTER BUILDER and Community Outreach for ArtsPRunlimited in 2021. We are planning a program on Henrik Ibsen’s THE MASTER BUILDER as part of our Covid-19 virtual season. Henrik Ibsen’s Master Builder is a precursor in many ways of Trump in his leading character Solness and fall from grace.It speaks profoundly to us in our time and would be ideal for students, the general public, and Theatre buffs. You can help us achieve our work on Henrik Ibsen’s THE MASTER BUILDER and my plays. We are also soliciting sponsors to present an opera recital honoring the memory of Vienna and Metrpolitan Opera Soprano Maria Jeritza (1888-1981) who lived in Newark, NJ. ArtsPR was founded to present, produce, + promote the Arts. https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=11419> Email Link http://conta.cc/2oFQOlg

FURIES 4 COVID-19 Seemingly blown out of proportion the intensity of the screams of anger & disgust at the position in which this society sits: Docile Bloated Obese While mocking Reducing the rhetoric to ridicule or worse Yet, It is necessary to understand not the nobility of such phrases
But the reality Behind the frustration That Creates Indignation.
Nobility can be something besides class. Simple to play a game of intellectual superiority or engage in a show of force for what farce is this?
Difficult to recognize the impulse behind the reality of the rhetoric: By not dismembering its content for lack of grammatical rigor by recognizing its passion. Foolish to use the vocabulary of the haves against the have nots.
Simple to tear up a piece of paper or manifesto.
As if having destroyed the object of one’s disdain. Forgetting for a moment.
Other realities too difficult or impossible to name.
In the nether world Furies and spirits would lay claim.
In medieval times: Salvation!!! the aim. Enduring life as it reignedf amine, Pestilence, starvation death. In ours we think we are beyond the elements
Invincible. Our vision a limited one. For there are other voices, Waiting to be proclaimed.
Furies wait Even if for Centuries Virtue the gods ! These are not only names.

Lincoln on the Know Nothing Party vs Trump. August 24, 1855: Letter to Joshua F. SpeedThe American or “Know Nothing Party” was an anti-immigrant political party of the 1850’s.I am not a Know-Nothing. That is certain. How could I be? How can any one who abhors the oppression of negroes, be in favor of degrading classes of white people? Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we begin by declaring that “all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes.” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty-to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy.
