UC San Diego's Geisel Library hosts an annual Paper Theater Festival, celebrating an art form with roots in Victorian Era Europe. Paper theaters (also known as toy theaters) were used to promote productions. They were printed on paperboard sheets and sold as kits at the concession stand of an opera house, playhouse, or vaudeville theater. The kits were then assembled at home and plays performed for family members and guests, sometimes with live musical accompaniment. The theaters gradually declined in popularity during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but have enjoyed a resurgence in interest in recent years among many puppeteers, filmmakers, theater historians, and hobbyists. Presently there are numerous international paper theater festivals throughout the Americas and Europe, as well as several museums.

La Jolla Symphony & Chorus begins their 64th season with questions about lineage: Where do we come from? How does the music of our past inform our understanding of the future? "Lineage," a piece by young Canadian composer Zosha de Castri, recalls how her grandmother's tales shaped her own sense of being Canadian. Igor Stravinsky's Petrushka was inspired by his memories of Russian Shrovetide fairs, in all their color and excitement. Finally, everything on the planet began with water, and in celebration, Music Director Steven Schick gives up his baton to solo in Tan Duns "Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra," with Michael Gerdes conducting. Recorded on 11/4/2018.
