Everyone has a voice. Shouldn’t yours be heard? Don’t take your voice for granted. A weak, breathy, hoarse, scratchy, strained, or graveled voice often indicates a problem. Hoarseness lasting longer than a few weeks probably isn’t “laryngitis.” Dr. J. Michael King treats the full spectrum of ear, nose, and throat disorders. He is an otolaryngologist and a fellowship-trained laryngologist (voice specialist) providing care to singers, performers, and professional speakers. As one of only a few specialists in the Western region who performs minimally invasive office procedures, balloon sinuplasty, and laser surgery, Dr. King is always willing to take the time to explain options to help you decide what treatment is right for you.

J. Michael King, MD Services and treatments include• Minimally invasive office procedures of the throat and sinuses • Laser surgery of the vocal cords • Treatments for pre-cancerous lesions or early throat cancers • Microsurgery for vocal cord polyps or cysts • Botox injections for spasmodic dysphonia • Voice restoration for vocal cord paralysis • Esophagoscopy and evaluation for reflux Offices in Broomfield & Golden 403 Summit Blvd., Suite 204 1030 Johnson Road, Suite 350 Broomfield, CO 80021 Golden, CO 80401

Scene 3: The Measure-worm Rock (Native American) A flock of birds flies about. Noticing that it is very dry, they migrate to other climes. A dreadful drought ensues. The animals, from small to the large, suffer in the heat. Finally a tiny cloud appears on the top of a tall mountain. One by one, each animal jumps, trying to catch the cloud. They fail. The tiny measure-worm appears. It inches up to the very top bringing down the cloud. It rains. The animals dance in celebration. Scene 4: The Skunk Song Corey Dargel introduces his troubadour band of extinct animals. Scene 5: The Stag and the Lion (Jean de La Fontaine) A stag, performed as a duet of male dancers, admires his large, beautiful antlers. Then he catches sight of his scrawny legs, reflected in the pond. They embarrass him. A lion suddenly gives chase. The stag is slowed down when his magnificent antlers get caught in the trees. The lion catches his prey. Scene 6: The Ant and the Chrysalis (Aesop) A busy, productive ant notices a chrysalis just sitting, doing nothing. The ant disdains it. Suddenly it feels a breeze. A beautiful butterfly emerges. The ant chases it in awe. Scene 7: The Ant and the Dove (Aesop) An ant colony hurries about it business at breakneck speed. One falls, but none of the other ants take notice. A dove sees the ant’s struggle and comes to its rescue. But just as the dove frees the ant from peril, a lion spies the dove is about to attack, when - a gnat distracts the lion from its prey. The ant and dove are saved. Scene 8: The Gnat and the Bull (Aesop) A bull munches on grass. A gnat flies about thinking itself very important, so important in fact, that the bull is paying attention only to it. The bull could care less. When the gnat brags, the bull eats it. Scene 9: The Belly and Its Members (Aesop) The members of the bull’s body - the legs, feet, arms and head - get annoyed with the stomach. They do all the work while the belly just sits there. They rebel, detaching from the lazy belly. Gradually the members loose strength and begin to wither. They return to the belly and united, find strength. Scene 10: We Have Lost Our Taste For Acorns Based on Lucretius’ text On the Nature of the Universe, the song points out how quickly fashions come and go while the human appetite remains insatiable. Scene 11: The Ant and the Cicada (Jean de La Fontaine) An ant colony hurries about it business at breakneck speed. The Cicada prefers a peaceful pace. Gradually she convinces the ants to slow down and change to a less reckless way of being. Scene 12: The Forest and the Woodcutter (Jean de La Fontaine) A woodcutter promises no harm and then wields his axe. Scene 13: Butterfly Dreams (Chuang Tzu) The Chinese Daoist fable shows that man and butterfly are connected as one and the same being, sharing nature. This performance will be presented without an intermission.

ARMITAGE GONE! DANCE Over the past 30 years, Karole Armitage and her dancers have shaped the evolution of contemporary dance through the creation and performance of new works.

Dedicated to redefining the boundaries and perception of contemporary dance, the company extends the mandate of innovation that characterizes

both her earlier Armitage Ballet, founded in 1985, and her first full time company, Armitage Gone!, founded in 1979. Armitage Gone! Dance is well known for its collaborations with innovators in music, science, and the visual arts. The company regularly performs to live music and has commissioned many scores since its 2004 debut. Known for their free spirited panache, Armitage Gone! Dancers bring unique flavors and strong personality to the stage.

LYRICS FABLES ON GLOBAL WARMING All lyrics and music by Corey Dargel © 2012-13 Automatic Heartbreak (ASCAP) 01—THE MARRIAGE OF THE SUN The sun decides that he is lonely Making everyone’s day but his own He decides to take himself a wife Perhaps another star Someone to brighten his own life The birds and the bees Are filled with delight They know how these things go “Now every day “Will be twice as bright “We must let everyone know” So naturally they made a b eeline As they sang “Let it be known Now two suns will shine Where once only one sun had shone” No more rains, no more fogs All rejoiced except the frogs Who thought, “One sun is bad enough “We’ve had enough “So we shall take a harsh stand “Two suns will dry up our marshland Our world will come undone Under more than one sun Our world will come undone Under more than one sun”

02—THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE [no lyrics] 03—THE MEASURE-WORM ROCK The air is so dry No rain in years We can’t even cry We’ve run out of tears The sun can be so unkind Does it think we don’t really mind Some say it does care The sun is aware Frankly I find that droubtful There has gathered a crowd To jump for the cloud First to jump is the mouse Poor mouse, don’t grouse Then came the rat But she was too fat Now the raccoon Shoots for the moon Well the wild boar, big and strong Gets it all wrong Finally the massive grizzly bear Takes to the air The meager measure-worm Climbs inch by inch Slow as ever Squirm by squirm Achieves the elusive endeavor Emotions overflow As it rains down below

04—THE SKUNK’S SONG I am a big thicket hog-nosed skunk And if I get sick it’s because I am drunk It’s the best way to cope With the absence of hope Hee is Carolina Parakeet But alas she could not compete Listen to the Passenger Pigeon squeal Because none of us is really real Or to put it more succinctly We’re performing for you extnctly And after the curtan closes Each of us decomposes So while we’re still here Why don’t we have another beer We can drink to the icebergs shrinking We can clink to the distnction Between my extinction And your extinction. 05—THE STAG AND THE LION A tirdty stag drinks from a pool And stares at his reflection in the water At first he brags about the length of his antlers And thinks no other stag could be hotter But short-lived was the stag’s splendor For as he adjusted his position He saw his legs, weak and slender His confidence shifted to inhibition

BULL: Well, I didn’t even notice you were here And I don’t give a damn if you disappear But if you insist that I should greet you Be forewarned: I might just eat you 09—THE BELLY AND ITS MEMBERS Stupid stomach Dopey drowsy belly Getting in our way We work all day Sweaty and smelly While you Eat all the grass And pass all your gas Why don’t you just leave us alone We will survive on our own 10—WE HAVE LOST OUR TASTE FOR ACORNS We have lost our taste for acorns We’ve disgraced this place with car horns In our race to seize the unseized We have chased away the wild beast In our haste to please the displeased We have chased away the wild beast Animal skins have gone out of fashion So begins the dawn of dispassion Of fluorescent costumes and glitter Of excessive exhaust fumes and Twitter We subsist on our lack of contentment So we exist in a realm of resentment

(A lion appears and chases the stag. The stag skillfully outruns the lion, until his antlers get caught in a tree. The lion catches him and eats him.)

We have lost our taste for acorns

“Woe is me” He cries with his last breath “Woe is me” As he contemplates his own death “Why did I feel so ashamed My legs could’ve kept me alive But instead I shall be maimed Well, at least my antlers At least my antlers shall survive”

CICADA: When spring comes around I emerge from underground To make my mating sound My song of sexual urge

06—THE ANT AND THE CHRYSALIS

Maybe it’ll help if I strike a pose even more and more proudly Maybe if I sing the notes Even more and more loudly

Look at this poor Chrysalis Imprisoned in his shell He isn’t feeling well, is he Well we are very busy very busy very busy And we will not abide the infraction Of this stupid pupa’s lack of action 07—THE ANTS AND THE DOVE [no lyrics] 08—THE GNAT AND THE BULL GNAT: You are moving so slow now Do you mind if I go now

11—THE CICADA AND THE ANTS

But with the temperature rising every year The season of spring will soon disappear When I really wanna copulate When I really wanna procreate

ANTS: We ants cannot concentrate Your cicada song is too loud and too late Why don’t you quiet down, do a little dance And give up on romance Your species really has no chance We bid you farewell, adieu, so long And we trust that you will be quitting Quitting your ear-splitting song Then at last we won’t be distracted by you There is always so much work we must do


12—THE FOREST AND THE WOODCUTTER

But may I ask for a token from you A broken branch or two Then I’ll go elsewhere I swear, I swear

FUNDING CREDITS Armitage Gone! Dance wishes to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the following organizations for their generous support.

SKUNK: An axe-man actually sees The forest for the trees Until the forest isn’t there Until there’s no more breathable air No more shade from the sun Oh, if only trees could run Forgive me my disgust At this deceit and abuse of trust Forgive me my fervent passion But why must everything unjust Seem to always be in fashion

WOODCUTTER: This axe I wield is broken Good news for you A woodcutter disarmed Means you won’t be harmed

13—BUTTERFLY DREAMS In your nightly human dream You are a butterfly Who never wonders why She is a butterfly Then this beam Of sunlight hits your face And you awake back in place Back in the human race But the butterfly, as she slept Also dreamed, she dreamed that she was you She knew exactly who She was passing through You hugged your pillow and wept On behalf of the butterfly ‘Cause butterflies cannot cry They barely live, then they die Before you come completely undone Remember nature and you are one And when you dream about anything that lives and dies It dreams of you likewise When you dream about anything that lives and dies It dreams of you likewise

ARTIST SERIES—ARMITAGE GONE! DANCE, October 2, 2013

BIOGRAPHIES Karole Armitage (Choreographer) is the Artistic Director of the New York-based Armitage Gone! Dance Company founded in 2004. She was rigorously trained in classical ballet and began her professional career as a member of the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, Switzerland (1973-1975), a company devoted exclusively to the repertory of George Balanchine. In 1976, she was invited to join Merce Cunningham's company, where she remained for five years, (19751981) performing leading roles in Cunningham's landmark works. Through her unique and acute knowledge of the aesthetic values of Balanchine and Cunningham, Armitage has created her own “voice” in the dichotomy of classical and modern dance, and is seen by some critics as the true choreographic heir to the two masters of 20th century American dance. Known as the “punk ballerina,” Armitage created her first piece in 1978, followed by the iconic DrasticClassicism in 1981. Throughout the 80s, she led her own New York-based dance company, The Armitage Ballet. Commissions from the Paris Opera Ballet and American Ballet Theatre led to choreographic commissions in Europe throughout the 80s, 90s and into the early 2000s. She set new works on companies including the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, the Ballet de Monte Carlo, Lyon Opera Ballet, Ballet Nacional de Cuba, The Washington Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, The Kansas City Ballet, The Greek National Company, The Bern Ballet and Rambert Dance Company. Armitage served as director of the 45-member Ballet of Florence Italy (1996–2000), the Biennale of Contemporary Dance in Venice (2004), and as resident choreographer for the Ballet de Lorraine in France (2000–2004). After her company's successful season at the Joyce in 2004, Armitage's focus shifted to creating her New York-based company, Armitage Gone! Dance. Armitage is renowned for pushing the boundaries to create contemporary works that blend dance, music and art. She is inspired by disparate, nonnarrative sources, from 20th century physics, to 16th century Florentine fashion, to pop culture and new media. In her hands, the classic vocabulary is given a needed shock to its system, with speed, fractured lines, abstractions and symmetry countermanded by asymmetry. Music is her script and she has collaborated with contemporary and experimentalist composers such as Rhys Chatham, Vijay Iyer, Lukas Ligeti and John Luther Adams. The scores can be marked by extreme lyricism as well as dissonance, noise and polyrhythms. The sets and costumes for her works are often designed by leading artists in the contemporary art world, including Jeff Koons, David Salle, Phillip Taaffe and Brice Marden. Armitage’s work is at once both esoteric and the popular. Having choreographed two Broadway

productions (Passing Strange and Hair, which garnered her a tony® nomination), videos for Madonna and Michael Jackson, several Merchant-Ivory films and Cirque du Soleil’s 2012 tent show, Amaluna. In 2009, she was awarded France’s most prestigious award, Commandeur dans l'orde des Arts et des Lettres. She is the 2012 recipient of the prestigious artist-inresidence grant at the Chinati Foundation, founded by artist Donald Judd in Marfa, Texas. She has directed operas from the baroque and contemporary repertoire for prestigious houses of Europe, including Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, the Lyric Opera in Athens, Het Muzik Theater in Amsterdam. She choreographed The Cunning Little Vixen in 2011 and A Dancer’s Dream in 2013 for the New York Philharmonic and provided choreography for Marie Antoinette, by playwright David Adjmi, at the American Repertory Theater Harvard and Yale Repertory Theater. Her work has been the subject of two documentaries made for television: The South Bank Show (1985), directed by David Hinton and Wild Ballerina (1988), directed by Mark Kidel. Armitage is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of the Arts from the University of Kansas in 2013. Corey Dargel (Composer/Lyricist) is a Texas-born composer and singer-songwriter whom the New YorkTimes calls “one of the more original and consistently provocative artists pushing at the margins of modern classical music and adventurous pop” and whom Minnesota Public Radio describes as “a wonderfully difficult artist to define.” Dargel has shared the stage with artists ranging from Owen Pallett and Joanna Newsom to the Brooklyn Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, the string quartet ETHEL, and the electric guitar quartet Dither. His latest commercial album is Someone Will Take Care of Me (New Amsterdam Records, 2010). Doug Fitch (Visual Director) is a visual artist, director and designer and the artistic director of the company Giants Are Small. He first collaborated with Karole Armitage on a production of The Cunning Little Vixen for the New York Philharmonic, which he designed and directed. His much acclaimed production of Le Grand Macabre, which featured a live-filmed, projected miniature theatre, was also produced for the New York Philharmonic by Giants Are Small. His other works include A Soldier’s Tale with Pinchas Zukerman and F. Murray Abraham, and Peter and the Wolf at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. His other projects include Elliot Carter’s opera, What Next? conducted by James Levine; Hansel and Gretel for Los Angeles Opera; and Das Rheingold for the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.

Taylor was educated at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and resides in New York City with his family. Jen Baker (Trombonist) is a New York City based trombonist who champions new music, often featuring multimedia aspects. As a soloist, she has appeared at festivals around the world as both a performer and masterclass teacher. Jen has premiered numerous solo and chamber works, including her self-composed First Nation’s Ley, Concerto for Multiphonic Trombone, in San Francisco.

CU OPERA

G

reat repertoire, lavish scenery, amazing voices, and outstanding value— these are the hallmarks of CU Opera. Director Leigh Holman and Music Director Nicholas Carthy bring you the best of classical and contemporary opera in three fascinating productions each season and in CU New Opera Workshop in the summer.

La Bohème (sung in Italian)

Hansel and Gretel (sung in English)

Side by Side by Sondheim (sung in English)

by Giacomo Puccini

by Engelbert Humperdinck

by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by guest artist Paolo Panizza

Humperdinck’s enchanting opera of the classic Grimm fairy tale follows two children into the forest, where they find a gingerbread house . . . and its hungry witch.

More than a revue of the incomparable Broadway composer’s work, Side by Side by Sondheim features his bestknown tunes alongside narration exploring the context of each piece.

In the Latin Quarter of Paris, Rodolfo the idealistic poet falls in love with Mimi, a frail but resolute milliner. Around their tender love story, Puccini depicts the exuberant lives of struggling young artists, expressing joie de vivre, love, and ultimately heartbreak.
