Pianist Susan Starr, 29, has been invited to appear in the Soviet Union for the third time since, placing second in the Tchaikovsky competition in Moscow in 1962. Her tour will include Moscow, Leningrad, Kiev, Lvov and Minsk. She will be featured in nine concerts -- seven recitals and two with orchestra. ' ' After the tour Miss Stair will fly to Korea for a six-day engagement and then perform in' Manila, Singapore and Bangkok. She received a letter from the president of B'rith Sholom asking her not to appear in Russia, because of that country's treatment of Jews. She wrote a reply in which she said that her refusal to go would probably be unheeded in Russia but thather appearance carries with it a niessage of freedom. -- Citiitn Photo by Dan Pavillartf jrSandy Record, assistant, and David Waterman, stage director, check the details. [Gilbert t · « ' . - · . ' ' - Ishunned Sullivan \ Why would anyone in ..to-jay's mod mid-America want to perform an English operetta from the 1880's? , 6 - ' . · · ' ' . ; Well, there are many good reasons, according to Dr. iibuis Brunsting, who has been 3n nearly every Gilbert and ·^ullivan effort mounted here in 4he last 10 years. * ' . . - . · · · ' · ' . . J "Gilbert and Sullivan pro- ;yide a satire on human nature ·that is unchangmg," the doc- ttbr allows, for openers, "The pperettas are musically tune- ?ul and challenging, capable of Acceptable performances by ;talent on a variety of levels. TThey are. a beautiful wedding frf words to music and they ·Jiave many leads, with a ^chance for a striving per- Jormer to work his .way up 'from- the chorus to a minor ;iead and then to a principal "role. (Brunsting started as ·Sam in "The Pirates of Pen- iwnce"). ^Brunsting, who plays the ,tole of Ko-Ko in the upcoming ·production of "The Mikado," notes that the theater in England was pretty bawdy before Sir William Schwenck Gilbert ind Sir Arthur Sullivan joined in-an attempt to upgrade it in ttie early 1870's. * - . It'.'They didn't speak to each other a lot of the time." Brunsting says. "Gilbert was jealous because Sullivan received so much attention. He was knighted 25 years before Gilbert was. ;; "And they had a big hassle once over carpeting for a new theater, a quarrel that nearly ended their collaboration. I "During this time, Sullivan had kidney stones, the most painful thing there is besides childbirth," says Brunsting. -History has taught Brunsting a few lessons about GS audiences: "Thursday, it's opening night and the critics are there. We're all up tight -you stumble through. :'."Friday, it's generally a quiet house. People who really like Gilbert and Sullivan are there. They appreciate everything. : "Saturday, I like because of the matineee. Kids have been prepped at school to know what the story is about, but they miss good lines, laugh like the Three Stooges at others. ·"Saturday night? Everybody's blotto, and they laugh al'everything." -- Dan Pavillard KIVA 907 f. Urn*. Blvd. 623-1851 1 Nock West of Main Univ.
