Aquila Theatre: The Tempest

  • January 23, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

Shakespeare's ultimate commentary on life and art, vengeance and forgiveness is unique among his work and is widely considered to be one of his finest. The acclaimed British-American touring company, Aquila Theatre, brings to our stage this tale of shipwrecks, magical powers, vengeance, forgiveness, and enlightenment. The Bard's tale is the story of Prospero, the Duke of Milan and self-taught sorcerer, who was put to sea with his daughter, Miranda, but found exile on an exotic and mystical island. Seeking justice against those who usurped him, and with retribution finally within his grasp, his relationship with his child is tested when she falls in love with the son of one of the conspirators. Prospero's memorable soliloquy and epilogue, in which he vows to give up magic, is thought to be Shakespeare's retirement speech. "If energy be the food of Shakespeare, then Aquila Theatre serves up a smorgasbord." (Boston Globe)

Jasmine Guy and the Avery Sharpe Trio: Raisin' Cane: A Harlem Renaissance Odyssey

  • January 24, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

By the 1920s, Harlem had become the heart of the African-American community in New York, and was a breeding ground for intense creativity. This outpouring of artistic expression became known as the Harlem Renaissance. In an extraordinary performance, renowned actress, singer and dancer Jasmine Guy, along with the acclaimed Avery Sharpe Trio, honors these legendary artists, who struggled against racial inequality, prejudice, and segregation. Weaving together text, song, movement, and imagery into a panoramic experience, Guy and the trio transport audiences to this prolific period through the voices of Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Zora Neale Hurston and W.E.B. Du Bois. Ms. Guy is well known for her extensive work on stage, film, and television, including her starring role on the Cosby Show spin-off, A Different World. Mr. Sharpe is considered one of the greatest jazz bassists of his generation. "Lively, informative, motivating, and entertaining." (Dayton Daily News)
