About Beverly
map
Beverly Massachusetts is a city in the northeastern part of the state that was founded in 1626 and is one of the Commonwealth's oldest communities.

The first ship commissioned by the Navy sailed from Beverly Harbor and residents believe Beverly to be the birthplace of the United States Navy. The city has the distinction of being the location of the first cotton mill and the first Sunday school in the country.

Over the past 50 years the city has shifted from an industrial site with huge manufacturers to a bedroom community that is 85% residential and emphasizes its academic and cultural facilities.

Beverly is the home of private Endicott College and the public North Shore Community College as well as the site of the North Shore Music Theater that hosts Broadway productions and famous music acts. Some of the most historic families live on gracious estates in the northern section of the city.

Beverly also houses a first rate hospital, miles of beautiful beach, and a diverse population. It offers everything from rural to urban lifestyles and residents believe it is all anyone could want in a hometown.

Claus Guth's Messiah - Film

To mark the 250th anniversary of Handel’s death, Vienna’s Theater an der Wien realized a truly extraordinary and controversial project: the staging of Messiah, the composer’s most popular oratorio. Collaborating with an exquisite cast of singers, Claus Guth, one of today’s highly renowned stage directors, delivered an emotional and psychologically charged sequence of images with spectacular musical execution and expressiveness. 

Called alternatively sacrilegious and freshly devout, this production offers the opportunity to hear a masterpiece with fresh ears, and the timeless message of hope offered in the context of our age’s hopelessness.

Alfred Eaker: Guth’s staging has been called agnostic, and that might be an apt description according to the traditional meaning of the word. Simultaneously, this may also be the most “Christian” filmed religious narrative since Michael Tolkin’s The Rapture. Guth’s Messiah makes an overly familiar yuletide narrative startling again. I believe Handel would have approved.

OperaRamplings.com: It’s a rare and valuable experience when a performance makes one reconsider a familiar work.  That’s the effect of Claus Guth’s staging of Handel’s Messiah.  I don’t think that there is any piece I’m more familiar with than Messiah.  I feel like I’ve known it all my life.  I’ve sung it.  I own a vocal score (rare indeed for me!).  I couldn’t begin to count how many times I’ve heard it.  And yet here it came up entirely fresh and had me thinking about it in completely new ways.

On the face of it staging Messiah is a real odd idea.  Of all Handel’s oratorios it’s the least dramatic in that there is no coherent narrative.  So, while the staging possibilities of Hercules or Theodora or Alexander’s Feast are obvious, Messiah would seem a poor candidate for theatrical treatment.  Guth gets round this by, in a sense, not staging Messiah.  The ‘play’ that we see on stage is not in any sense a representation of the Messiah narrative, such as that is.  It’s an entirely new story that is acted out with the music standing as a sort of commentary on the action.  It’s not easy to describe but it works.

We open on a scene with a distraught priest (Richard Croft) roaming a corridor.  “Comfort ye” is powerful, somewhat strident, perhaps even angry.  It’s a harbinger of how our usual emotional responses to the music will be challenged.  This leads us to a funeral.  The coffin is centre stage.  Florian Boesch sings “Thus saith the Lord” and opens the coffin.  We learn that the dead man cut his wrists.  Bejun Mehta sings “Who shall abide” and closes the coffin.  The women present are obviously distraught.  What is happening here?

Most of the rest of the drama is played out as a flashback in which we learn of the forces that drove the dead man to suicide.  We see the relationships between him and the two other men; his brothers one presumes, and the two women; one his wife.  We see his, on the face of it, prosperous and successful life unwinding.  This is played out by the singers, a dancer (Paul Lorenger) playing the dead man and a young girl (Nadia Kichler) who appears to comment on the action in sign language.  There’s also plenty of work for the chorus who get a lot of “Sellars semaphore” like action.  There is a great deal of dramatic ambiguity but emotionally it’s very straightforward.  The whole drama is played out on a rotating set that turns itself into rooms and corridors of a vaguely institutional kind with many doors and few windows.

Eventually we are back at the funeral parlour.  Here we get one of the most tradition bending moments.  The seated chorus sings the Hallelujah chorus as the coffin is wheeled into the room.  It’s curiously lyrical and entirely untriumphal.  It’s a million miles away from the Huddersfield Choral Society letting rip.  The final part of the drama deals with the aftermath and runs the gamut of grieving from anger through regret to resignation.

Musically this is really pretty good.  The Arnold Schoenberg Choir is quite outstanding throughout.  I’m not a fan of using a counter tenor in the alto role but dramatically it makes sense here and Bejun Mehta is a terrific singer.  The repeat of “He was despised” is particularly fine.  Florian Boesch and Richard Croft are excellent too, injecting more emotion into the music than one would expect in a concert performance.  The soprano roles are taken by Susan Gritton and Cornelia Horak.  Gritton gets most of the big numbers.  “I know that my Redeemer liveth” is really lovely.  Horak does just fine with the relatively little she gets to do.  “And suddenly there was with the angel” is given to boy soprano Martin Pöllmann which makes dramatic sense.Jean-Christophe Spinosi is in the pit with the Ensemble Matheus and they play in a suitably idiomatic, period style way: crisp, emotional, powerful.

Cariboo Magi
Sea Change Theatre Company presents Lucia Frangione's Cariboo Magi, A holiday tale filled with a drunken minister, a saloon keeper, an aging dancing girl and the last of the Mohicans. Join us for some hilarious cartoonish Christmas fun! Cariboo Magi will run December 12th through December 21st in the performance space inside Dane Street Church at 10 Dane Street in Beverly, MA. A drunken, Anglican minister who has failed to convert anyone in ten years, an avaricious saloon keeper with a murder in her past, an aging, pregnant dancing girl, and a man who claims to be the last of the Mohicans all need a new lease on life. They intercept a contract meant for a San Diego theatre company, form a bedraggled troupe of players, and head north, through the wilds of the Cariboo gold rush to perform at the Theatre Royal in Barkerville. Frangione's characters are brought to life by Amanda Collins of Beverly, Christopher Donahue of West Newbury, Jacquelyn Weatherbee of Salem, Matthew Schwabauer of Beverly.
