The Rape of Lucretia

Benjamin Britten's gripping chamber opera about self-possession and self-destruction is set in a civilization devastated by the atrocities of war. Morality and mortality are obscured in this story of a lustful and obsessive leader's determination to destroy and conquer the last remaining hope of purity and faithfulness. Sung in English with supertitles.

The Rape of Lucretia is for mature audiences only due to sexual content and graphic violence.  

Merrily We Roll Along

Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's legendary musical, which runs backwards in time from 1976 to 1955, examines the lives of three people whose friendship is tested by time, events, ambitions and fate. It charts the rise of a songwriting team during the years of Sondheim's own young career and features some of his brilliant and bruising songs, including Not a Day Goes By, Old Friends, Our Time and Opening Doors.

Senior Dance Concert

Dance Division seniors choreograph new works.

Noises Off

Backstage antics and hilarious comedy - not to mention a plate of pesky sardines - ensue as harried director Lloyd Dallas puts his mercurial cast through its paces during a final rehearsal of Nothing On. Then things really go crazy - backstage we witness a final lurch toward the last performance.

The Cunning Little Vixen

Leoš Janáček's delightful opera follows the adventures of Vixen Sharp Ears and teaches us all about the cycle of life and the restorative power of nature. The story was taken from a popular Czech newspaper comic strip in the 1920s, and Janáček's brilliant score captures the humor and politics of the day, the amazing sounds of the natural world, and the profound lessons offered by the miracle of life.

Sung in Czech with English supertitles.
