Live at Timucua: The Medium & The Telephone (In-Person)

Timucua presents two fully-staged opera performances: “The Medium” (running time 60 minutes) and “the Telephone” (running time 30 minutes) by Gian Carlo Menotti. Both operas will be performed back to back at a 3:00 pm matinee, and a 7:00 pm evening show.

The Medium is set in 1930’s USA. Madame Flora, with the help of her daughter Monica and Toby, a mute servant, tries to cheat her clients through faked seances. She is touched by a hand during one of them, an occurrence she cannot explain and which drives her to insanity and murder.

The Telephone revolves around the attempts of Ben (baritone) to propose marriage to Lucy (soprano) in her apartment before he leaves on a trip. Numerous phone calls and conversations that preoccupy her prevent him from popping the question.

Live at Timucua: Britton-René Collins (live stream)

Through an exploration of reality versus augmented reality, Britton-René Collins presents a contemporary percussion program that consists of two contrasting sound worlds: the electronic, and the acoustic. With a decrease in face-to-face human interaction due to the global pandemic, society has adapted to technology and the use of multimedia as a means for correspondence. This experimental program sonically parallels modern societal shifts relating to virtual communication and social interaction during the 2020 pandemic and events surrounding the black lives matter movement.

Percussionist Britton-René Collins finds passion in the art of contemporary percussion performance. A winner of the 2020 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, Britton-René has dedicated her artistry to shaping a more equitable community for all musicians to thrive in equally. She was awarded the Ambassador Prize for exceptional musicianship and demonstrating an active commitment to creating social change through her music.

Live at Timucua: Robert Fleitz “Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field” (live stream)

“Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field” is a two-hour long solo piano epic by the composer Dylan Mattingly, which reimagines each of the 24 books of the Iliad and threads them into an autobiographical musical epic about love, heroes, baseball, and coming of age in New York far from home. For hundreds of years, bards would travel the Aegean and sing from memory the 15,693 lines of the Iliad. Each time the story would change a little bit depending on the bard’s surroundings and memory. Achilles Dreams of Ebbets Field imagines what the Iliad in which we find ourselves — after a few thousand more years of telling, retelling, and evolution — might feel like.

Pianist and composer Robert Fleitz performs, commissions, and writes music to curate evocative, multi-disciplinary experiences for audiences. Praised for “mesmerizing” and “commanding” playing (The New York Times), and for musicality with “a delightful ease and lightness” (I Care If You Listen), his prolific career in performing both classical and new music has led to appearances in 24 US states and 13 countries across the globe. He was the winner of the André Boucourechliev Prize in the 2020 International Piano Competition of Orléans.
