The Met: Live in HD preparations

Our projectionist, David Austin, and I have been busy installing the satelite equipment needed for broadcasting the Metropolitan Opera season which begins October 9th.
The first step after receiving the hardware was to install the hard drives and receivers in our projection booth.
We then hauled the satelite dishes up the side of the building, 32 cinder blocks up an interior ladder, assembled the dishes on the roof, and weighted down the tracks that the dishes are attached to.

A message from the President of the Board of Directors

Dear Lincoln Members, Patrons and Friends,
Thank you for your patience with our hibernation this summer.  Many of you have told me how much you have missed our regular programs,  I am also missing them and miss seeing my friends and neighbors at the Lincoln every week. I also want to thank and acknowledge the devotion of staff and volunteers (in some cases this is one and the same person) that put on the Saturday night events in Pine Square. Although it has not been a easy year, everyone's support makes our efforts worthwhile.

Ginko Leaves - Works on Paper, Pastel and Mixed Media by Caroline Seibert

Free - In the Lincoln Theatre's Art Gallery - Throughout August & September

Artists of every medium have been attracted to and inspired by Ginkgo biloba, also called the Maidenhair tree, a deciduous conifer, a living fossil, unchanged since the time of dinosaurs. From a single bud, several leaves emerge in the spring, each a separate design, unlike any other leaf known on our planet today. Prior to the Ice Age, the tree was common throughout America. Thought to be extinct, a cultivar of Gingko biloba survived, discovered in China where the tree, now sacred, symbolizes love, peace, hope, and longevity.

The Metropolitan Opera - Armida (Rossini)

Saturday, May 1, 10:00 am
Sunday, May 9, 1:00 pm
General: $22; Seniors: $18; Students: $15 - Season Packages Available

This mythical story of a sorceress who enthralls men in her island prison has inspired operatic settings by a multitude of composers, including Gluck, Haydn, and Dvorˇák. Renée Fleming stars in the title role of Rossini’s version, opposite no fewer than six tenors. Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman returns to direct this new production of a work she describes as “a buried treasure, a box of jewels.”  The fanciful and magical tale, Zimmerman says, “has an epic, enchanted quality and a tremendous visual element.”
