Description Click to see original Image in a new windowThe Cal Poly Music Department student production ensemble RSVP will stage the multi-layered production “RSVP XXII: Wine – A Whimsical Commentary” at 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, May 30 and June 1, in the Performing Arts Center Pavilion.

This year’s show celebrates electroacoustic diversity, compositional risk and all things viniferous. Lighthearted on the surface, the story follows a wine tour group’s experience at a winery. But the production is all an allegory of more serious fare — the importance, even sacredness of what we share, particularly special food and drink.

The show promises to be, as its title implies, whimsical, comedic, entertaining, and fanciful. At once, it revels in and mocks aspects of wine culture. The show includes music and dance and theatre from an extremely wide variety of styles. “This is an intentional attempt to push the concert goers from the safe, obvious moorings of the surface story line,” says Antonio G. Barata, artistic director of the RSVP series. “It keeps people guessing, wondering what might come next, and makes them think beyond a simplistic interpretation.”

The music, soundscape and staging combine the creativity of students in Barata’s Sound Design classes with the choreography of Diana Stanton, a Theatre and Dance Department faculty member, and the students in her dance classes.

Tickets are $14. Event parking is sponsored by the PAC. Tickets are sold at the Cal Poly Ticket Office between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. To order by phone, call 805-SLO-4TIX (805-756-4849).

The performances are sponsored by Cal Poly’s Music Department and College of Liberal Arts. For more information, call the Music Department at 805-756-2406
