Local Arts Broadcast Comments (0)

The MET Live in HD series at the PAC continues on May 10th at 9:55am with Rossini’s La Cenerentola, while art from the Paso Robles Art Association is featured in the foyer. 

The Opera

"Stage-Lit Diva" by Bob Lahr (La Cenerentola)

“Stage-Lit Diva” by Bob Lahr will be on display May 10th.

Taken From the MET Press Release:

Joyce DiDonato sings her first Met performances of the title character in Rossini’s Cinderella story, La Cenerentola, with bel canto master Juan Diego Flórez as her dashing prince. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads a cast that also includes Pietro Spagnoli in his Met debut as the servant Dandini, Alessandro Corbelli as Cenerentola’s stepfather Don Magnifico, and Luca Pisaroni as Don Ramiro’s tutor, Alidoro.

The Art

This show was open to all members of the Paso Robles Art Association – all levels, all mediums, all fun!  Some of these artists have been at the PAC earlier in the year as individuals and are returning to bring all their work to the larger show; some have never been seen at the PAC. For some of the artists, this is their first introduction to opera and the PAC – ever.

Preview some of the artwork on display.

3D as well as 2-dimensional works will be on display and for sale.  

Some artists joining this exhibition are: John Barnard, Hellie Blythe, Becky Brown, Page Graeber, Peg Grady, Sarah Griffith, Steve Johnson, Margrete Koreska, Anne Laddon, Sandra McGillvray, Marilyn Marshall, Penny Monmonier, Janice Pluma, Alice Ronke, Sandra Rude, Mindy Sisemore, Kim Snyder, Bill Tuck, Jim Tyler, and Nancy Vest.

"Adrift" by Kim Snyder (La Cenerentola)

Inspired by Cinderella, “Adrift” by Kim Snyder will also be on display.

The Paso Robles Arts Association

The Paso Robles Arts Association is dedicated to providing quality artwork and to raising awareness and appreciation of art in the community. The Association also offers countless workshops, classes, and overall arts education to members and the public.

Anne Laddon

One of North County’s most acclaimed artists and principal of Studios on the Park in Paso Robles, Anne Laddon, will be “sketching” in the lobby of the PAC prior to La Cenerentola!  She will bring a small easel and some pastels and draw away in a corner of the lobby.  Two of her paintings will be at the show as well, making this is an event not to be missed.


The Pairing

Following the success of last weekend’s display during Cosi fan tutte, this show will leave audiences wanting more.  As Cinderella is such a popular story, it will attract audiences of all ages, and has even inspired some of the artists’ work.
