Local Opera Local Artists' La Clemenza di Tito: A Retelling

Arts Story  March 1, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...LOLA's creative team didn't expect anything this timely when they programmed Mozart's last opera. (Trivia note: Mozart was offered the commission only after his rival Salieri passed on it.) The impetus to mount Tito came from the score, which caught the ear of Artistic Producer Rebecca Herman while working on a scene at Des Moines Metro Opera..."

LOLA's La Clemenza di Tito: A Retelling
The quality of mercy is never not strained in this new adaptation of Mozart's late opera
Arts Review  March 8, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...Indeed, he couldn't hear it. As conceived by the other half of this show's Team Rebecca, Artistic Producer Rebecca Herman, this staging had Berenice – who is mentioned but doesn't appear in the original opera – reviewing past events of Tito's life, commenting on scenes for which she wasn't present and saying what she wished she'd been able to say then..."

'La Femme Bohème'
Puccini's Bohemians get an all-gal makeover
Arts Story  June 19, 2014, by Robert Faires
"..."All of the elements are there: camaraderie, friendship, love, passion for art and for each other, struggle to survive, heartache. These are universal themes no matter your gender." To stage the piece, she recruited Rebecca Herman, who developed the idea that all of the now-female characters were "living somewhere on the gender spectrum." Marcello presents herself as masculine, while Rodolfo alternates between feminine and masculine..."

Prints Charming
Marking Austin's Museum of Art's "Fresh Ink" Exhibit
Arts Story  February 21, 1997, by Rebecca S. Cohen
"...A grouping of prints from Coronado Studios -- including artists Leticia Huerta, Laura Garanzuay, Pio Pulido, Candace Briceño, and Deann Acton -- is easy to "read." Their intense colors and themes echo the Latina exhibition which preceded them in the same gallery space. But the museum missed entirely on the placement of Roger Herman's astonishing multi-panel, two-color woodblock..."
