'Die Fledermaus' set to flit about in BGSU's Donnell PDF Print E-mail

Guest Director Eric Gibson wants to keep "Die Fledermaus" light.
Some productions may dig deep into the subtext, foreboding of war and imprecations of marital discourse. "There's no reason to bring all that angst into it," Gibson said.
"We've retained the lightness and comic flair," he said. The aim is for the production "not to take itself too seriously."
Gibson compared it to serving up chocolate cake. Why add any exotic ingredient?
The Johann Strauss will be staged Friday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Donnell Theatre in the Wolfe Center for the Arts. Tickets are $15. Visit bgsu.edu/arts or call 419-372-8171.
"Die Fledermaus (The Bat)" made its premiere in 1874, but Gibson decided to set this production in the 1920s and make the Act 2 ball "a raucous New year's Eve Party," including some cross-dressing, "not typical gowns and tuxedos."
It's a time when "women are more empowered... and not so cookie-cutter and subservient to their men."
A university press release sums up the plot: "The tale of "Die Fledermaus" begins in the home of Gabriel von Eisenstein, a wealthy man of independent means. Eisenstein, his attractive wife, Rosalinda, and the rest of the cast lead the audience on an amusing journey from bedroom to ballroom to prison."

After placing second in the David D. Dubois Piano Competition Evelyn Mo decided she wanted to return to Bowling Green.
This morning, Mo, a high school sophomore from northern Virginia, won the fourth Dubois competition held at Bowling Green State University, with sparkling performances of W.A. Mozart, Frederic Chopin and Lowell Liebermann.
Renowned pianist and guest judge Jeremy Denk was especially impressed with her performance of Chopin's Sonata in B-flat minor. She "played with incredible polish and sound," he said.
Mo, 15, has studied piano since she was 3. She doesn't remember not playing piano, and it's always something she's loved. "Even when I was young I always practiced."
Though she has diverse interests - she loves writing, math and science and also plays the violin, she knows she wants music to remain a part of her life even if that means the academic rigors of seeking two degrees in college.
Right now, she said, she's leaning toward studying piano performance and finance and economics.
"It's part of me," Mo said of music. "I like playing, I like performing. It's like telling a story when you play. It's an exhilarating experience." And that's how she felt after finishing her Dubois winning performance.
