Volunteer Ushers for Symphonie Fantastique
HERE Arts Center is seeking volunteer ushers for the upcoming show, Symphonie Fantastique, running March 29 - June 17. The Ushers would come an hour before the curtain, help set up the house, greet and assist patrons, and then stay after the show to clean up and close the house. All of our ushers are invited to sit and see the show for the performance they work.
About Basil Twist's Symphonie Fantastique: Twenty years ago in 1998, Basil Twist debuted his boundary-breaking response to Berlioz’s 1830 "Symphonie Fantastique" to universal acclaim, inaugurating HERE's intimate Dorothy B. Williams Theatre. In the two decades since Symphonie Fantastique's premiere, Basil Twist has become an internationally recognized artist in opera, ballet, and on Broadway, and has won countless awards including the illustrious MacArthur Fellowship. Twist will revisit his legendary masterpiece as part of HERE’s 25th Anniversary Season. In this revival, accompanied live by a virtuosic pianist playing the exquisite Liszt transcription, Symphonie floats and swirls in a 1,000-gallon water tank neatly disguised as a puppet stage. For the many who never saw it, and for those who relish seeing it again and again, the return of this tour de force to HERE is the event of the season.
