Hegeler-Carus Mansion

The Hegeler-Carus Mansion in LaSalle, a national landmark (1876). Edward C. Hegeler was born in Oldenberg, Germany. After several visits to America, Hegeler’s father decided that he wanted a child to be raised in the country. Hegeler was educated at the School of Mines at Freiberg, Saxony, where he met F. W. Matthiessen. Hegeler and Matthiessen immigrated to the United States in 1857 at the age of 22. Hegeler and Matthiessen first worked at a floundering zinc factory. They were able to turn it around, but the owners shut the factory down in the aftermath of the Panic of 1857. Hegeler & Matthiessen then travelled around, looking for a place to build their own factory. They settled in LaSalle, Illinois, because of a surplus of coal in the area and its proximity to the zinc mines in Mineral Point, Wisconsin. The Matthiessen & Hegeler Zinc Works grew to become one of the most productive smelters in the Midwest, employing over 1,000 people.

In 1887, Hegeler founded the Open Court Publishing Company in his house. He intended it for the purpose of discussing religious and psychological issues in the mindset of the scientific world. He rejected dualism (good versus evil) in favor of monism. To discuss these views, he founded The Monist in 1890, a periodical that is still in publication today.

Dr. Paul Carus was Hegeler’s son-in-law, and held very similar views. Carus was also a German immigrant, who left Germany because he felt persecuted for his liberal views. Carus came to the attention of Hegeler in the late 1880s when he edited the German-language journal Index. Hegeler hired Carus as the managing editor of the Open Court Publishing Company. Carus was particularly interested in the philosophy of Charles Sanders Pierce, and popularized his ideas through publications. In 1893, he attended the World’s Parliament of Religions, where he became enamored with Asian religions. It was there he met Soyen Shaku, a Buddhist Zen Master. Carus invited Shaku to his mansion, but he sent D. T. Suzuki instead. Suzuki became one of the first translators of Chinese, Japanese, and Sanskrit literature.

The New Theatre Teatro Nuovo

The New Theatre is the second opera of Verona and the Veneto , in addition to being one of the major Italian theaters. It is currently used for most representations of prose and musical works, or conference.
Inauguration
The theater was inaugurated on September 12th 1846 , with a work ever staged in Verona (the world premiere took place six months prior to the Teatro La Fenice in Venice), Attila by Giuseppe Verdi . Among the performers one was particularly well known, the soprano Rita Bass Borio . Work was combined with dance illusions of a painter

For the opening of the theater, the Verona Victor Merighi composed a sonnet patriotic: he wrote a sonnet dedicated to the first woman Rita Bass Borio which thrilled the audience, which was distributed together with other flyers, so that the police would not notice. The poem in fact said:

" Woman, now roaring of the wind, and the storm
pregnant rotation, and thunder shudders to give notice to Austria death, and life in Italy Appeals »
The season continued with Ernani Verdi and the good of Mercadante .

At the closure of the theater season, a new ode was composed, almost a hymn to ‘ Italy personified in the artist Conti and against the Stranger, who cowardly and evil have the perpetual grin on Italy . The Journal of Verona , controlled by the Austrian police , he could not deny what had happened, but did not explain the real reason for the enthusiasm nor the content of the ode.

The viceroy to the theater
In the two years that followed there were at the Teatro Nuovo for the most dramatic, and March 18 arrived in Verona even the Viceroy of the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia , to attend a drama. Police to create consensus popularized the rumor that he had come to bring some benefits to the city. On the same day the news came that Vienna was rioting, and that Metternich had fled, and the Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria had to concede the Constitution .

The announcement spread to Verona , and citizenship came to the New Theatre during the show. The chronicles tell of a true delirium, and a festive crowd and praising all ‘ Italy and Pope Pius IX . The theater was closed for this until the end of 1849 . The theater was closed again in 1858 by the military authorities.

Up to the present day
On January 2, 1862 , the theater was reopened with Il trovatore , then, from 1872 , the Martha by Friedrich von Flotow (which was unsuccessful). In 1893 there was Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo . In 1901 there was the first of masks of Pietro Mascagni , which was done simultaneously in seven cities. In 1909 the theater was closed for safety.

Reopen in 1914 with Tosca by Giacomo Puccini in 1915 The Barber of Seville , in 1919 a Lohengrin , in 1930 a Madama Butterfly , in 1932 Lucia di Lammermoor , in 1940 a Manon by Massenet and Andrea Chénier . In 1943 , during the war, were represented La traviata and La bohème .

The theater at the end of the war was in poor condition so much so that he had to close. There were quite a lot of renovations, which ended in 1949 . On 2 October 1949 the theater was finally reopened. From this point onwards, however, the theater billboard focuses on the representation of shows mostly in prose and in hosting conferences and cultural events.

In the New Theatre then became home to the Teatro Stabile di Verona, recognized in 2005 by the Ministry of Heritage and Cultural Activities Teatro Stabile.

Architecture
austere neoclassical fact the main facade of Viviani Square is dominated by a colonnade in white and gray stone. The room is Italian style, with two rows of boxes (except two small portions at the proscenium where orders are three) with Ionic columns, a balcony and a gallery. The environment, from simple white painting, it is enriched with golden decorations and clock located above the proscenium (on example of citizen Philharmonic Theatre ). The theater has a little reduced, which is accessed, rather than the main entry Piazza Viviani, from the side overlooking the Piazzetta Navona .
