Great Performances at Mason 2015-2016 Season

This season marks a quarter century of presenting the best of the performing arts at the Center for the Arts. To celebrate our silver anniversary, we have assembled some of today’s most brilliant artists, from burgeoning luminaries to legendary masters, representing the worlds of music, dance, theater, and more. The opportunities to witness artistic greatness abound, from Broadway’s favorite leading lady Bernadette Peters and tap dance virtuoso Savion Glover to the brilliance of Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra and the vocal splendor of Chanticleer. The season truly offers something for everyone: cutting-edge contemporary dance from RIOULT and Mark Morris Dance Company, a chilling Halloween performance of Dracula, inspired string-quartet interpretations of ragtime music and even a reimagination of the Beatles’ classic Sgt.
