THE NEW YORK TIMES.COM ORCHESTRATES A MOMENT IN TIME:
A SINGLE MOMENT IN THE LIFE OF OUR PLANET

Thousands Of Shutters To Be Released Simultaneously for Photo Quilt

WHAT IS IT? The Lens Blog Division of The New York Times.com will capture one single moment in the life of the planet with pictures taken from around the world, resulting in a fascinating, diverse photo quilt of world issues and humanity.

WHO: This program is dependant upon thousands of professional and everyday photographers. Everyone with a digital camera, a cell phone with a camera, or even a recyclable one-time-use digital camera (available at places like CVS) is invited to participate – no matter where you are in the world. Thousands of shutter-bugs from across the globe have already committed to and shared their enthusiasm for the project at its Facebook page (A Moment In Time).

WHERE: The “where” is up to you. Assuming you will be here on the east coast of the United States, where would you typically be on a Sunday morning at 11 AM? Think about your photo in advance as you’ll be sending in only one -- the most important part of this project is the thought behind the picture.

General topics include Religion, Play, Nature and the Environment, Family, Work, Arts and Entertainment, Money and the Economy, Community and Social Issues. Note: If you do not plan on taking a photograph, remember to look sharp, as someone may photograph YOU.

WHEN: Sunday, May 2nd at 15:00 hours U.T.C. (the neither-English-nor-French abbreviation for Coordinated Universal Time, previously know as Greenwich Mean Time.) Much of the populated world is in daylight at this time -- the moment translates into 11:00 AM here in New York, lunch time in Rio de Janeiro, dinner time in Cape Town, dusk in Afghanistan and Monday morning in Australia.

HOW: After you have taken your photo, send it as soon as possible to submit.nytime.com/moment (the link will be activated then). You will have five days to upload the picture as some will not have immediate access to a computer or the Internet.

On the web form you’ll be asked to categorize your photo by location and subject (see topics above) as well as caption information (you can view submission form beforehand though obviously you won’t be able to use it yet. A small margin of error of within a few minutes is expected, but do your best to target 15:00 UTC exactly.

THEN WHAT: The photos will appear quickly on the Lens blog and on NYTimes.com. You will be able to arrange and view them by country and topic and rank other photos. Random viewing is also encouraged for an overall effect.

"Falstaff" by Verdi
The “Best of” Film Series
at The Best Little Theater in Westchester
Irvington Town Hall Theater [link]
Presented By Irvington Town Hall Theater Commission. During May we are presenting the final two operas of Giuseppe Verdi, Otello and Falstaff, both based upon plays by Shakespeare. Verdi, after the completion of Aida, had retired from opera composition. His work was done. But he always loved Shakespeare. (Macbeth had brought him one of his early successes, and he worked throughout his life on the never completed opera, King Lear.) So when his publisher, hoping to woo him from retirement with one last opera, left the libretto for Otello with him, he was tempted. This opera and its successor, Falstaff, were both written to librettos of the poet Arrigo Boito, unarguably the greatest librettist of his day. Falstaff, Verdi’s final opera, is a lyric comedy, and the only comedy he ever composed, aside from an unsuccessful attempt early in his career. It follows the antics of Sir John Falstaff, a portly, old cad who, being short of drinking funds, decides to write love letters to two wealthy married women. Unfortunately for him, the two compare notes and decide to teach Falstaff a lesson.
