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.

Male singers play the role of the lecherous Don Giovanni and ruler of the gods, Wotan. Mezzo-sopranos play Cherubino, the young boy who sometimes pretends to be a young girl. Or so goes the customary wisdom. But what happens when long-held conventions are turned on their heads by extraordinary singers and interpreters whose paths defy traditional ways of thinking about opera? On January 24, join countertenor Kangmin Justin Kim and female baritone and trans advocate Lucia Lucas for an intriguing evening of opera scenes, songs, and conversation, exploring how they have found their own voices despite the mainstream.

Kim earned acclaim last spring for his Cherubino at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, under the baton of John Eliot Gardner, and soon will embody the title role of M. Butterfly (by Huang Ruo and David Henry Hwang, debuting this summer at Santa Fe Opera). Lucas recently made powerful house debuts at English National Opera (Public Opinion, Orpheus in the Underworld) and at Tulsa Opera (title role in Don Giovanni), and next season will add Rigoletto to her growing repertoire.

Pianist Zalman Kelber joins this NationalSawdust+ program, to include audience Q&A. Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer, whose work includes Little Shop of HorrorsHedwig and the Angry Inch, and Spring Awakening on Broadway, and La TraviataRigoletto, and Nico Muhly’s Marnie at the Metropolitan Opera, will moderate.
