Walnut Street Theatre: A Life in the Theatre

  • February 6, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theatre presents David Mamet’s humorous and thoughtful play about two actors competing for the spotlight — and the dressing room! Inspired by his background as an actor, this Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright wrote a very funny and touching story about two actors in a repertory company: Robert, a veteran actor, and John, a promising young actor. This hilarious work provides a backstage glimpse into the world of show business, and the challenges of the relationship between this mentor and his apprentice — from rehearsals to reprisals, and ego trips to acting tips. "Mr. Mamet has written — in gentle ridicule; in jokes, broad and tiny; and in comedy, high and low — a love letter to the theater. It is quite a feat, and he has pulled it off." (New Yorker)

Please note that this performance includes mature language.

Virginia Opera: Salome

  • February 14, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

Richard Strauss's chilling one-act opera, an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's notorious play about the Bible's wicked femme fatale, both shocked and thrilled audiences more than a century ago with its extravagant debauchery and rich, evocative score. Salome, the beautiful yet troubled stepdaughter of Herod, has a perverse obsession over the imprisoned John the Baptist, who spurns her seductions. Meanwhile, her lecherous stepfather is willing to offer her whatever her heart desires if only she will perform a dance, until he learns of the extremity of her demands. With its broad vocal range and the sensual "Dance of the Seven Veils," the title role is among one of the most demanding in all of opera. Virginia Opera brings this spectacular work to our stage for the first time. Sung in German with English supertitles.

Christopher O'Riley and Pablo Ziegler: Two to Tango

  • February 22, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Concert Hall

Two brilliant contemporary pianists share the stage in a  program featuring two-piano arrangements of tango music. One of the foremost pianists of his generation, Christopher O'Riley is known for breaking down barriers between classical and popular music, regularly performs as a soloist with the world's leading orchestras, and is host of NPR's From the Top. The Washington Post says, "O'Riley played so delicately that he seemingly left no fingerprints on the keys, yet his melodies sang out with sweet clarity." Latin Grammy Award-winning pianist, composer, and arranger Pablo Ziegler launched his career performing in the legendary quintet of tango master Astor Piazzolla, and has since become the face of Argentine New Tango, a fascinating hybrid of tango and American jazz. The Guardian says, "Ziegler…plays straight from the beating, bleeding heart of nuevo tango, with its Argentinian mix of swagger and sweetness."

Mark Morris Dance Group

  • February 28, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

For over three decades, this visionary choreographer has thrilled audiences and impressed critics with the exquisite beauty and delightful wit of his choreography, and the remarkable artistry of his dance group. Mark Morris's work, almost always performed to live music, is celebrated for its musicality, and he continues to experiment with the relationship between music and movement. This program includes two works set to music by Lou Harrison: Pacific, a renowned ballet by Mark Morris being performed by his company for the first time, and Grand Duo, which has been called “intoxicatingly thrilling” (Seattle Times) and “one of the masterpieces of the late 20th century.” (The Guardian) Additionally, a new dance set to Songs Without Words by Mendelssohn will be featured along with another work from the company’s extensive repertoire. "There is no other choreographer today with Morris' unbound imagination and the skill to realize it onstage." (The Washington Post)
