The Southern Theater just announced its 2009/2010 season, which tends to be a long list, since it hosts many events that last only a weekend or two. A couple of items on that list popped out, however.
First, Dominique Serrand and Steven Epp, two of the artistic directors behind Theatre de la Jeune Lune, and the creative duo behind some of the theater’s most successful shows, are back in action. While they give no solid details as of yet, they are on the docket to perform a new work October 22-25, 2009. Epp will write and perform, Serrand will design and direct.
Second, the Southern promises not one, not two, but three different performances (in September 2009, and January and April, 2010) by a new chamber music group called “Accordo.” The group (which I can’t find mention of anywhere on the web) features SPCO principal players Steven Copes, Ruggero Allifranchini, Maiya Papach and Ron Thomas, and Minnesota Orchestra principal cellist Tony Ross.
