Still missing the concern. The example is more like this:


   - Amelia: Mourning is a VisualArtwork A1
   - A1 has a genre of costume design drawings
   - Vanity Fair is a Play (which would presumably be a subtype of Creative
   Work but which does not yet exist in the schema vocab.) P1 (from here we
   could proceed as Richard has in his example but far better is Jeff's
   suggestion to use Creative Work Series)
      - workExample P2
   - The 2016 production of P1 is a Play Series (non-existing subtype for
   Creative Work Series) P2
      - P2 starts on date of 4-Jan
      - P2 ends on date of 29-Feb
   - The 4-Jan 7:15 performance of P2 is a Theatrical Event E1
      - workPerformed P2

The problem is that schema lacks vocabulary to link A1 to P2 (or even to
E1). We could potentially use the mentions predicate that Eric suggests but
the definition of mentions does not match the actual role that A1 plays in
P2. And so we need some properties that are missing and that could be
attached to either P2 or E1.

In addition to the (pre)visualizations and stage notes, I'm also missing a
good way to distinguish between dancers and actors and also between
directors, conductors, and choreographers. Nominally I could group them all
using the performer or organizer (respectively) predicates and then
differentiate among them using roles. But since I have many instances of
each this leads to an explosion of 'Event performer Person role Role'
sub-graphs. Better would be if I could define actor and dancer
sub-properties for performer and similarly director, choreographer and
conductor sub-properties for organizer and thereby limit the growth of my
triples.

A complication that Tim has pointed out is that the properties of events
and entities in schema do not seem to be distinct but rather overlap
leading to awkward situations where I'm potentially listing the performers
and other property objects in multiple places (i.e., they are weirdly
shared between an entity and an event even though the entity takes part in
the event and so presumably we'd already have the information in hand from
the entity). The point being is where a Creative Work Series ends and an
Event begins is difficult to see (or even where a Creative Work ends and an
Event begins). And as always in this case A1 is the entity of chief import.
Relating events and other creative works back to it is the goal.
