Aquila Theatre: Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare

  • September 30, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Mistaken identity, espionage, and deceptions take center stage in Shakespeare's famous comedy. This classic farce is a tale of matchmaking and romantic mischief. When the soldier Claudio returns from war to his fiancé Hero, the two conspire to set up the sharp-witted and belligerent Benedict and Beatrice. Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's last comedies and is considered one of his crowning masterpieces. For their 25th Anniversary season, Aquila Theatre tackles this classic romantic comedy with their signature physicality and remarkable dramatization. This festive play, full of combative wit and melodrama, will leave you rolling in the aisles.

Virginia Opera: The Seven Deadly Sins and Pagliacci

  • October 8, 2016 at 8:00 pm
  • October 9, 2016 at 2:00 pm

Concert Hall

Virginia Opera opens its 25th season at the Center for the Arts with a fantastic double bill — the satirical ballet chanté The Seven Deadly Sins and Ruggero Leoncavallo's masterpiece Pagliacci. The final collaboration between Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, The Seven Deadly Sins is a sharp critique of capitalism, exploring greed, desire, and sacrifice in the pursuit of success. Anna, performed by renowned Weill specialist Ute Gferer, embarks on a cross-country journey in search of the American Dream, encountering one of the infamous sins in each of the cities she visits. In Pagliacci, a traveling troupe of actors blurs the lines of art and life as their play mirrors their own reality with tragic consequences. It features one of the most familiar of all tenor arias sung by the crying clown, "Vesti la giubba." The renowned baritone Michael Chioldi and the acclaimed soprano Kelly Kaduce appear in these two tales of temptation and vengeance. Seven Deadly Sins will be sung in English with English supertitles. Pagliacci will be sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Jones is recipient of numerous awards, including the National Medal of Arts, MacArthur Genius Award, a Kennedy Center Honors award, and multiple Tony Awards.

Fall for the Book: Civil War Historians James McPherson and Edward Ayers

  • September 28, 2016 at 7:30 pm

Harris Theatre

Two noted historians of the Civil War, James McPherson and Edward Ayers, join in conversation about their work on this important period in American history in a rare event presented by Fall for the Book at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, in Harris Theater on Mason’s Fairfax Campus. McPherson, appearing via video conference from Princeton University, will offer observations, growing out of his most recent book, on why the Civil War still matters, and Ayers, who will be on the stage in Harris Theater, will talk about his work on the Reconstruction and its relationship to the war and present time. They then will join in discussing their ideas and insights, followed by taking questions from the audience. Christopher Hamner, George Mason Professor of History, will moderate. The appearance by McPherson via video link is necessitated by his not being able to travel to Mason, as he originally planned. The re-formatting offers audience members a rare opportunity to gain from the insights of two experts in the field. It does mean, however, that McPherson will not be present to sign copies of his books, which will still be for sale at the event. Copies of Ayers’ books also will be available for sale and signing. Sponsored by Mason’s Department of History and Art History.

Experience a one-hour multi-media event that marries art and science to bring awareness to the issues of water ecology, land use, and public policy in the American West.

Powell’s studies of the Colorado River Basin concluded that the arid West was incapable of supporting substantial human populations at any distance from the main water sources. This production is based on Wallace Stegner’s 1954 book, Beyond the Hundredth Meridian: John Wesley Powell and the Second Opening of the American West. In partnership with the College of Science, the English Department and the School of Art.
