Our Ecology Connection

Heitor Villa-Lobos was not only a wonderful, imaginative and visionary composer, he also was a philosophical visionary, seeing clearly that it is essential to bridge cultural divides by looking at our similarities rather than our differences, and to foster harmony between mankind and the natural world as the foundation for the survival of both.

The moving story of our Green Mansions, with its wondrous Amazon rainforest setting, presents us with a unique opportunity to give even more purpose to our mission by designing our production in a way that will create for our audience an indelible image of the beauty and vitality of the Amazon rainforest, and by aligning the Green Mansions production to the current efforts to protect our rainforest habitats, echoed so poignantly in the music of Villa-Lobos, which is filled with the sounds of the Amazon rainforest he knew and loved so well.

As Green Mansions develops we will be pursuing our vision by actively encouraging partnerships with ecological organizations, developing educational programming devoted to environmental advocacy, and sharing a percentage of the proceeds from ongoing productions of Green Mansions in support of our common cause.
