His weapon was Absurdity his Battles hilarious and the caravan theatre at Dorset present some of his Best work in Quot a Thurber carnival Quot this week. Flawlessly acted brilliantly staged and almost reverently faithful in feeling and style tothe spirit and letter of or. Thur berms intention. The magic starts with the opening curtain and weaves its Subtle Way from fable to fable As Gem after Gem of pure comic invention is polished to Luminous brilliance and casually set aside. The secret is simple a the absurd is real. The actor s believability is the key to the fun. As each Absurdity becomes reality on stage a and How fantastically quickly you accept even the most outlandish suggested a Little shreds of real reality Are fed into the a a surd machine.

Photo by Carol Foster music review Tanglewood program is musically attractive by Lisa Tate Lenox mass. A Tanglewood a program is More musically attractive this year than usual. I had the Good Fortune to hear two concerts there last week both memorable enough to deserve mention even if mention is belated. Memorable for its scope was sunday afternoons performance of music composed by Mozart in the last years before his premature death. A male chorus Sang the Little heard but stirring Quot Freemason cantata k. 623 with the chamber Section of the Boston symphony orchestra followed by the seemingly simple yet melodic Motet Quot ave verum Corpus Quot k. 618 Sung in unison by the chorus with strings and Organ. The major work was the Quot requiem Quot Mozart s last work which he did not even Complete. Erich Reinsdorf chose to dedicate this performance to the memory of Pope John Xxiii wh6, like Mozart died Quot before he had completed his masterpiece. The Quot requiem Quot was a moving performance indeed although at moments Reinsdorf seemed to be calling for More vocal weight than the Large but Young chorus could produce. For those of us who Sang the requiem Here in the Bennington Community chorus in May 1962, several were in the audience Paul Boepple s interpretation seemed More dramatic than Reinsdorf a who in turn seemed More scrupulous in the Effort to keep his Large forces together. The Harvard summer school chorus was ably prepared for his performance by Iva Dee charter no. 2395 Reserve District no.
