Opening Night 2015: Eve Gigliotti, Gyan Riley, and Jeffrey Zeigler perform Paola Prestini’s Yoani Songs

Mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti, guitarist Gyan Riley, and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler performed an excerpt from Paola Prestini and Royce Vavrek’s Yoani Songs, a song cycle based on the life of Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez, who gained notoriety as a sharp critic of her government, at our opening night in 2015. “Olivia” traces the wrenching journey of a trans woman struggling under Castro’s regime told through Yoani’s lens.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
