Innocence in Today’s World

Joyce DiDonato’s recent blog entry, Refreshing Innocence, includes her views on how the arts can serve humanity:

“I think there was a reason the Busby Berkeley Musical’s were so popular during WWII and the Depression Era, as people longed to be transported out of their every day misery and struggle.

“I’m not so sure that we’re in such different times at the moment…

“I also think it’s important to simply let music/art/opera CARRY US AWAY from time to time. To allow ourselves to dream a little bit? To escape? To laugh? Maybe to cry? To remind ourselves of what innocence was like, and to allow things to CHARM us.”
