We performed "fragments" of our work-in-progress "Weaver Woman" as part of the garden's Enchanted Evening Series, amid gorgeous surroundings of elegant latticework doors, stone courtyards, ponds, maples, and bamboo. The show was done as a concert of pieces: fragments of the text movement and music by members of the Orchid Ensemble with special guest, cellist Peggy Lee, featuring new compositions. Ines Ortner created stunning "prototype" costumes (which were much more than prototypes!). The sky was clear and full of stars, the atmosphere perfect and even the resident bullfrog made an appearance at a ideal moment. It was a magical evening and a fantastic step in the creative process of this show.
