Vivat: The New Barbarians
This was a commissioned performance piece for the Walters during Baltimore's celebration of Sister City, St. Petersburg, in Russia. The piece centered on the lives of two women of different ethnicities who met while traveling to Russia in the early part of the 20th century. Much history of that era was incorporated into the performance and the Russian language was used in some of the songs and dialog.
A Theremin lecture/demo/concert was presented at The Walters Museum in March of 2003 by Lorraine Whittlesey as part of the 'Vivat! celebrations since the inventor of the Theremin, Leon Theremin, was from Russia.
