What does Larry have to say?
"From the beginning, TMT has been defined by the contributions of our wonderful artists. It will be an honour and a joy to gather with many of them and offer you a grand celebration of the company’s spirit and energy. The program includes excerpts from Acis and Galatea, The Fairy Queen, The Lesson of Da Ji, The Mummers Masque, and Orpheus and Eurydice, and a new commission from Andrew Downing – not to mention a few surprises!"
