Getting Ready for Gilbert and Sullivan

Set Building

It may look like a big mess, but the stage set is under construction at Andrew Carnegie Free Library’s Music Hall in Carnegie, being prepared for the Pittsburgh Savoyards’ performance of Princess Ida. I’ve never liked recordings of these shows, but I discovered I love the productions live, and this is the 75th year the Savoyards have been performing G&S. the sets are always detailed—I think I see some stonework in progress at the bottom, the voices are spectacular and the music is a live orchestra. Read more about the Music Hall and about the Pittsburgh Savoyards.

A colorful tea set with a backdrop of colored glass lit by they sun on a bright afternoon. Seen in Carnegie Antiques, it was all just so colorful and gleaming it was hard to resist.

It’s always interesting to see what is collected, what is saved, and what survives to be shared again, sometimes the most unlikely things! If you’re local to Carnegie or the Pittsburgh area, don’t forget to stop in at Carnegie Antiques, and the shop’s owner is also hosting an estate sale this Saturday, July 21 that looks like a collector’s dream.

The sun at this time of year is magical, long and angled, brilliant among the bare trees, alighting even the simplest of household items and creating abstract images or interesting patterns of light and shadow.
