Anne Arundel college has show by five on faculty
Sharon Edwards-Russell's "Caduceus" is one of a group of works in which she uses black and white motifs to refer to symbolic forms from earlier civilizations. She is one of five artists in "Abstractionists and Esthetes," an art faculty show at Anne Arundel Community College. Others are Marie Linnekin, whose paintings and prints also refer to early cultures; Richard Malmgren, whose ceramics reflect Greek and Asian influences; Judith Paris-Wear, whose charcoal drawings explore the subconscious; and Peg Swartout, who collaborates with Paris-Wear on a work called "Stations of the Cross," a reinterpretation of the traditional series of Christian images. At the art gallery of the Pascal Center for Performing Arts, Anne Arundel Community College, 101 College Parkway in Arnold, through Sept. 26. For information, call (410) 541-2341. The Washington Concert Opera offers a rare opportunity to hear Richard Wagner's "The Flying Dutchman" today at 6 p.m. in Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University. The cast is the sort one usually gets to hear only in cities such as New York and Chicago. The title role will be sung by Baltimore-born James Morris, perhaps the preeminent interpreter of the role. He will be joined by a much-talked about young Canadian soprano, Frances Ginzer as Senta, Kurt Link as Daland, Stephen O'Mara as Erik and Stephen Crout conducting the Washington Concert Opera's orchestra and chorus. Tickets, priced at $19-$43, are available by calling the Washington Concert Opera at (202) 797-4671 or at the door.
Stephen Wigler Stacy Keach stars as the title character in "Macbeth" at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre, 450 Seventh St. N.W., beginning Tuesday. Anyone who saw Keach's extraordinary *T Richard III there five years ago won't want to miss this chance to see his interpretation of the tragic Scotsman plagued by "vaulting ambition."
The production will be directed by Joe Dowling, recently named artistic director of Minneapolis' acclaimed Guthrie Theater. Set design is by Tony Award winner Ming Cho Lee. Helen Carey co-stars as Lady Macbeth. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays; 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; with matinees at 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through Nov. 5. Tickets are $13-$47.50. For more information, call (202) 393-2700.
