DiChiera's Cyrano de Bergerac - November 4, 9
Right words; wrong man. What's a beautiful young woman to do with two suitors — one of whom has a lyrical way with words but is too insecure to face her? She should be careful not to fall for the wrong guy. Sung in French with projected English titles.
Verdi's Rigoletto - February 11, 15, 17
Some sins can’t be swept under the rug. Life at court isn't all pomp and pageantry. There's deceit, lust ... and a curse that comes to pass. Tragedy befalls Rigoletto, the court jester, just when he thinks he's the one getting revenge. In Verdi's dramatic tale, love leads to murder. Sung in Italian with projected English titles.
Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro - April 15, 19, 21
Multiple suitors and deceit: it’s a bit thorny. Getting to the altar has never been more fraught with complications. A frisky count, his neglected wife, the object of his desire and her weary, but cunning fiancé — plus a cadre of manic characters — create and then navigate chaos. All in the name of love. Sung in Italian with projected English titles.
Tappin, I Dream - May 18, 19 , 20, 24
The final 36 hours in the remarkable life of American icon Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is recounted through flash-backs to the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement and Dr. King and Coretta’s journey together. I Dream envisions a renewing of Dr. King’s dream at a time of deep divisions in our culture. Composer Douglas Tappin fuses classical, jazz, contemporary and Broadway styles into language that communicates the power and immediacy of Dr. King’s message.
