Where have all the pictures gone?

Anyone keen to delve into Tagora’s pictorial history may be disappointed to find that the photo archive appears to be empty. Folders below the top level (2014, 2013, 2012, etc.) lead only to an error page. There seems to be some incompatibility between WordPress 4 (the content management system that runs this Web site) and the plug-in that generates the photo albums. The good news is that the photos are still there. Our precious historical records are safe! The bad news is that it’s beyond the Continue reading →

Blithe Spirit in Darmstadt

The ESOC Theatre Group (attached to the European Space Agency) is producing Noël Coward’s “Blithe Spirit” in November 2014. It’s a comedy, now over 70 years old but still frequently played and recently revived at the top level both on Broadway and in the West End with Angela Lansbury in a leading role.

Season’s greetings!

No, not yet that season. But the Strasbourg theatre scene is reawakening after its summer lay-off. Theatres are offering presentations of the season’s  programmes; and it’s not only the “biggies”  (like the TNS and Le Maillon), but also the Cube noir, where Tagora will be staging The Cherry Orchard early next year. Trois 14, Strasbourg’s amateur theatre collective, is organising this season’s presentation. On behalf of Tagora, Isabelle Dousset will be delivering a short introduction to The Cherry Orchard. The evening will end with a glass of something and Continue reading →
