Sherry's outreach campaign for Idomeneo in March 2017 marks her five year collaboration anniversary with Fathom Events and The M...Friday, March 24, 2017
To celebrate the 230th anniversary of Mozart's opera Le nozze di Figaro, Sherry created the Figaro230 initiative to collect and display celebratory regards from Mozart fans all over the world at Mozarthaus Vienna. They were displayed in the museum on October 13th and 14th, 2016 during their symposium on contemporary Mozart reception, entitled Mozart heute: Zum aktuellen Stand der Mozart-Rezeption (Mozart Today: The Current Status of Mozart Reception).
Mozart Reimagined (October 2015) by Tyson Vick captures Mozart's dramatic works in nearly 100 photographs with lush costumes and set designs. Approaching the subject as a designer and photographer, Vick vividly brings to life a contemporary interpretation of Mozart's operas. Sherry received a mention in the book's acknowledgements for source consulting.
To mark Mozart's 259th birthday on January 27, 2015, Sherry realized a new celebratory idea through a collection of sentiments from around the world to create and present Mozart's first global birthday greeting at the Mozarthaus Vienna. The Mozarthaus, now a museum, was the grandest apartment owned by Mozart and he lived here for longer than in any other apartment. Although he lived at several addresses in the city, the Domgasse 5 residence is the only one that survives today.
In October 2014, Sherry attended the Da Ponte Day symposium and concert hosted by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York with members of the Da Ponte family. The celebration honored the life and work of their ancestor, Lorenzo Da Ponte, who collaborated with Mozart on three of his greatest operas. Ms. Davis also attended Le nozze di Figaro at The Met with the family and was onsite at Columbia University for their interviews with filmmaker Nayo Titzin for the upcoming doc Being Da Ponte.
"To celebrate the release of Volume 9 of The Ealing Studios Rarities Collection, we thought we would take a closer look at one of the classic films included. Whom the Gods Love (1936) is the story of Mozart and his wife Constanze, set against a background of court intrigue and professional jealousy, with music conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham. We thought it might be nice to invite Sherry to write a little piece on the film, and how right we were." -Network Distributing London (Jan 2014)
