Denver International Festival of Arts and Technology (DIFAT) will present three components at the Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts on the University of Denver campus July 25-July 31. For authorized admission tickets: newmantix.com or 303-871-7720.
The festival is sponsored and presented by the Joseph & Loretta Law Institute of Arts & Technology (founded by their son Dennis Law, MD). The first component is the world premiere of Ms Butterfly – a combination of ballet and opera with costumes on super steroids. Full rehearsals began on July 15. Instead of a 65-piece orchestra, because of technology – there will be six musicians. Instead of a chorus, there will be 24 dancers. The cast of dancers is from Wonderbound, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company and members of Law Brothers Chinese Performing Arts International. The second component is The Finals for the Denny Award International Competitions for Electronic Music in three categories. The third component is a Festival Symposium on Arts & Technology on July 31 from 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. Admission to this symposium is free to the first 250 respondents by contacting Grace Tian (617-816-4850) or e-mail: gtian@
Dr. Larry Chan coordinated a three-course dinner at University Club to feature Dr. Dennis Law’s discussion of his upcoming futuristic adaptation and production of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. “It’s a fresh showcase to appeal to broader audiences including young people,” said Dr. Law, a retired surgeon who never lacks for passion and creativity and who is also chairman of the Denver International Festival of Arts and Technology.
