Jacques Offenbach http://wrti.org en Thomas Eakins http://wrti.org/post/thomas-eakins <p>Efforts are now underway to keep Thomas Eakins' iconic painting The Gross Clinic in Philadelphia. We speak with those leading the charge; Jason Peifer explores The Tales of Hoffmann from Temple University Opera Theater. The production is based on the newest edition of the 19th century opera, which incorporates 24 previously undiscovered pages from Composer Jacques Offenbach's original score; and, Susan Lewis looks at a new film-making contest. Project 21 gives competitors just 21 days to create a complete new work-but with a twist.</p> Sat, 18 Nov 2006 15:54:00 +0000 Jim Cotter & Susan Lewis & Jason Peifer 1679 at http://wrti.org
