Season 2018-2019 • The Sixteenth Season Ruben Valenzuela, Artistic Director Michael Sponseller, Associate Director Clara Rottsolk, Soprano (Cupid) Sumner Thompson, Baritone (Cold Genius) CUPID What ho! thou genius of this isle, what ho! Liest thou asleep beneath those hills of snow? Stretch out thy lazy limbs. Awake, awake! And winter from thy furry mantle shake. COLD GENIUS What power art thou, who from below Hast made me rise unwillingly and slow From beds of everlasting snow? See'st thou not how stiff and wondrous old, Far unfit to bear the bitter cold, I can scarcely move or draw my breath? Let me, let me freeze again to death. May 4, 2019 Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church (Cardiff)
