Transcript Art Calendar Susannah, Carlisle Floyd's opera based on the biblical story of Susannah and the Elders, will be presented free at the Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park on the evenings of June 4, 5, 7,9, 11, and 12. Diana Soviero plays the part of Susannah, a young Appalachian woman who is accused of and persecuted for an illicit sexual affair. Reserved seat tickets (free) can be picked up the day of the performance between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., at the Miller box office. SOPRANO DIANA SOVIERO The Alley Cinemafest '76 begins June 15. During the first week of films, Spectacle in the Cinema, you won't see many women's faces on the screen in Seven Samurai, Fellini Saiyricon, and Creatures from the Black Lagoon. The Friday midnight Sleaze series begins appropriately enough with Ken Russell's The Devils, about "a worldly priest accused of sorcery by a group of sexually obsessed nuns," starring Vanessa Redgrave. During the second week, women appear as members of Dynamic Duos, Ginger Rogers as the Gay Divorcee, Maria Montez as Cobra Woman, and Katherine Hepburn on Holiday. The second Slease movie is Myra Breckenridge, with Mae West and Raquel Welch. The McNay Art Institute in San Antonio is exhibiting a major Bicentennial show of American women artists through the end of July. The show comprises one piece of painting or sculpture by each of 56 artists from east coast to west coast including Judy Chicago, Audrey Flack, and Texans Dorothy Hood of Houston and Stirling Willis of Dallas. A handsome catalogue with pictures of every piece (18 in color) and a comment by every artist is available for $6.00. The McNay Institute is located at 6000 North New Braunfels, San Antonio, Texas, 78209. (More about this in the July issue of Breakthrough.) The Patsy Swayze Jazz Ballet Company will dance at Miller Theatre on the evenings of July 6, 7, and 17. The first two performances will be in concert with the Houston Pops Orchestra. Their repertoire includes classical ballet, jazz, modern and ethnic dances. On July 4, Channel 39 will show a 45-minute documentary on the company. Photographs from the Wellesley College Collection will open at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, on June 12. The exhibition will include photographs by Gertrude Kasebier, Julia Margaret Cameron, Imogen Cunningham and Doris Ulman, all born in the nineteenth century. Twentieth century women photographers are represented by the young, contemporary Judy Dater, noted for her portraits of women. In addition, three photographs shot by French photographer Eugene Atget and printed by the American Berenice Abbott in 1956, will be shown. Houston musicians Lucinda Williams (known professionally as Lucinda) and Lynn Langham performed at Houston's first all-women's concert on May 13. Langham sang two original songs Living in the Music and Grandmother Song. Lucinda sang the traditional Fish in' Blues and her own S/ippin'St Trippin'. Having lived in Austin, Lucinda says she is tired of the "Cosmic Cowboy Macho Mystique" and finds Houston audiences more receptive to women and to non-country music. She will be playing at tne bull 'n Anchor restaurant through June. Both artists have appeared on the Channel 26 television show "Crash's Jam." On June 19 at 8 p.m., Langham will participate in the Songwriters' Workshop at the Contemporary Arts Museum. ADVERTISE IN BREAKTHROUGH The Gershwin opera, Porgy and Bess, will be presented by the Houston Grand Opera from June 22 through July 4. The story takes place in a Black working class neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1920's. In Act I, Jake the Fisherman sings A Woman Is a Sometime Thing. In Act II, Porgy and Bess sing the duet Bess, You Is My Woman Now, but in Act III, Porgy discovers that Bess has left for New York with Sporting Life, who peddles "happy dust." Ella Fitzgerald will sing in Jones Hall on Thursday June 24. Fitzgerald is the diva of scat-singing, which is an instrumental use of the voice, stringing together nonsense syllables in a melody without using lyrics. To paraphrase the diva: "Shoo-bee-doo-bee-diddly-bop- n-doo." She also sings the blues. On Saturday, June 26 at the Contemporary Arts Museum, there will be a poetry reading and book party for Vassar Miller, Houston's most prominent poet. Her first book of poetry, Adam's Footprint, was published in 1956, followed by Wage War on Silence, My Bones Being Wiser, and Onions and Roses. Her new book is called If I Only Could Sleep Deeply Enough. Esther Phillips will sing at the newly reopened La Bastille Tuesday, June 29 through July 4. Galveston artist Jane Allensworth's acrylic on canvas paintings are hanging in the Watson/de Nagy Gallery through the month of June. The Joffrey Ballet of New York will present three completely different performances at Jones Hall, June 14, 15, and 16, beginning at 8:30 each night. On Monday, June 14, Face Dancers, a brand new ballet by Margo Sappington, will be featured. The Tuesday, June 15 program includes Deuce Coupe II by Twyla Tharp, which is a juxtaposition of classical ballet and choreography based on popular dances of the 1960's, with music by the Beach Boys. Margo Sappington's Weewis will be presented on Wednesday, June 16. Dr. Julia Maxow will teach a 5-session course on Recent Women Writers at the Jewish Community Center on Friday mornings starting June 18. Joyce Carol Oates, Susan Schaeffer, Gail Godwin, June Arnold, and May Sarton will be discussed.
