New York Opera Conservatory is presenting a free virtual opera: Mozart’s Don Giovanni (A Pandemic-Nightmare Comedy). The Conservatory makes the pandemic the backdrop of an opera, and some of its strange and unanticipated consequences a part of the production! Since Mozart’s Don Giovanni (a dark tragedy) had already been chosen by the Conservatory for its summer program, it was totally reimagined as a hilarious comedy taking place during a pandemic, and created entirely by relying on internet connections and cell phones. The entire production was staged, filmed, and edited without any of the cast and technical crew leaving home. Every special effect offered by phones was used throughout the production, from Snapchat filters to tinder messaging to turning the tenor aria “Il mio tesoro” into a home cooking show--showing us just how bizarre and surreal the world has become. Production glitches, similar to what you see every day in the media where programming is home-based, are a major part of the charm and fun of the work.

This production is offered free of charge to the public; however, any donation large or small will help to make up for some of the essential revenues lost as a result of the pandemic. Make a donation at www.TaconicOpera.org.

Don Giovanni is available on YouTube to watch at your leisure and as often as you like at https://youtu.be/Mwa428_ZJpI.

Once you find some—and 'tis the season—download the iNaturalist app, photograph the flower, and upload it to the database. By mapping an invasive species you'll both be educating your child and helping to save the planet.

All you need is a blender (one you don't also cook with), soda ash, and some easy-to-find crafting supplies. I Love My Park Day, which had been scheduled for May 2, has been canceled.
