Cavalli's Giasone in a cabaret setting

Opera Omnia launched their second production, Giasone by Francesco Cavalli at New York's Le Poisson Rouge last week. Their  inaugural production, Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea, played to sold-out houses in 2008.  The very special thing about this production is that the final show Wednesday night, September 7 at 7:00pm is being streamed live! Watch it here:


This posting is the first for my new blog and I wanted to direct attention to the wonderful musicians who have become friends and clients. Daniel Swenberg and John Lenti are playing theorbo and baroque guitar. Thanks to Dan for sending me the link.

I am working on three instruments now: a baroque guitar that will be finished in a few weeks, a 19th century Lacote model guitar that is more long term and a Kaiser model theorbo that is due for completion in October. My future posts -- hopefully frequent -- will concern the building details, stories and backgrounds, both contemporary and historical, of those instruments and the musicians who play them.
