It's too bad we have not seen any Gray Hats around recently... well that's about to change!
This Saturday (the 5th) at 1:00 PM EDT, Jamie Marchant will be putting on a show in The Fun House!
It willl consist of the usual stuff you have come to expect from the Gray Hats like Disco Fog, "Mixalllagy" and the age changing around you. If that's not enough he will be taking request from players and he will try his best to fulfill them.
Come one, come all and bring your requests.
The Guild of Sleepers is organizing a party in MOULa to celebrate their first year of activity!
The Amber Horizons Hood, in association with the Rooftop Volunteer Group presents:
The opera performed will be Claudio Monteverdi's "Il Ritorno D'Ulisse in Patria".
Stream address to access the performance is Radio KTDN at: http://radioktdn.zapto.org:8025
The date of the exhibition will be March 5th, 2012 at 19:00 KI-time in the Amber Horizon's Hood, replacing the Bevin's regularly scheduled event.
Here's what our esteemed Lord of Chaos had to say about the musical piece over on the MOULa forums:
"[The opera] was first performed in 1640. I'll be playing a version performed by the Concerto Vocale, and soloists, directed by Rene Jacobs. He's a specialist in early vocal music, and this performance is in accordance with "historically informed practice." The instruments used are those of the time and the vocal practice similar...
There's no extant full score. Jacobs had to do quite a bit of reconstruction and interpolation, as would anyone performing this work. "L'Orfeo" is more popular, so there has been more work done on that one. Even the libretto had problems, as there are different versions. The differences aren't major, though. Any libretto you find on-line will probably be a little different from this one, which is sung in Italian."
Be aware, the opera runs almost three hours. An intermission has been planned. The RVG's signature browines, along with other light snacks and beverages, will be provided on the mezzanine. Read more
Over in the MOULa forums, Jamie Marchant came up with a brief thought:
"How can we get Cyanists to visit the cavern?"
followed by a novel idea:
"What if players formed the Cyan Logo, while humming the corporate theme song, maybe it would attract some unexpected visitors?!?"
This is something that has already been done in the past, sometimes with success (some Explorers may remember the Summoning Yeesha event in sil-oh-wet's Bevin during the GameTap Era).
Well, guess what??? Now it's time to make this vision into reality once again! The betting odds are against us, but all we can do is try!
A planning session for this event will be held in Jamie Marchant's Hood on Tuesday, March 6th at 15:15 KI-time. Help map out this future event, or drop by just to talk , have some fun, and good times!
Perhaps one our many cavern D'niJ's may even be there to provide some tunes! You'll have to stop in for a visit to find out!!!
