A View From the Bridge at the Alley Theater, Houston

https://www.alleytheatre.org/plays/production-detail/a-view-from-the-bridge

Following the success of Death of a Salesman (2012) and All My Sons (2015), the Alley returns to one of America’s greatest playwrights with a new production of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. This dark and passionate story centers on Eddie Carbone, a longshoreman by trade, who is confident of his place in the working-class Brooklyn neighborhood he calls home. That life changes when he agrees to harbor his immigrant cousins. A love affair exposes a dark family secret, and suspicion, jealousy and betrayal soon follow.

The Raven at Teatro Communale, Bolzano, Italy

http://www.teatrocomunale.bolzano.it/event/the-raven-2/

Una cantante (mezzosoprano) e una danzatrice sono al centro della messa in scena creata da Luca Veggetti per l’opera del giapponese Toshio Hosokawa, fra i più noti e apprezzati autori del panorama musicale contemporaneo. Nella sua trasposizione operistica del famoso poema Il Corvo del maestro dell’horror Edgar Allan Poe, il compositore si lascia sedurre anche dal fascino misterioso del nō, antica forma di teatro che unisce elementi di danza, recitazione, musica e poesia, dando così corpo a suggestivi intrecci espressivi. Accolta con successo anche negli Stati Uniti, The Raven è una raffigurazione allegorica del rapporto fra mondo umano e animale: nota dopo nota, la musica di Hosokawa si rivela essa stessa uno straordinario microcosmo emotivo.

Dall’omonima poesia di Edgar Allan Poe

Direzione musicale Yoichi Sugiyama

The Bronze Idol

Premiere of the production (under the title "I love you, Peter's great creation..."): 25 May 2016

This fantasy ballet is based on Pushkin’s poem The Bronze Horseman and invites the audience to see the characters through the eyes of the poet, whose pen inexorably controls their fates. Choreographer Lar Lubovitch and set designer George Tsypin reveal the paradoxical nature of the creative process: the poet chooses the future for his characters but, at the same time, is captive to his own idea. Kommersant wrote: “The characters in the ballet are phantoms roaming the streets — some of the numerous St. Petersburg ghosts whose shades fill and enliven the city.”

The Lion In Winter at the Guthrie Thater

http://securesite.guthrietheater.org/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=22064

A family feud of imperial proportions
“Well – what shall we hang? The holly or each other?” Set during Christmas 1183, The Lion in Winter tells the wickedly amusing tale of King Henry II, his imprisoned queen (released only for the holiday), and their three entitled sons who vie for the throne in a double-dealing division of the kingdom. Best known for the film adaptation starring Peter O’Toole and Katharine Hepburn, this viciously funny drama is a high-stakes chess game where the pieces constantly change sides and no one is spared the sword. Brace yourself for an epic family takedown at the Guthrie Theater, just in time for the holidays. 

Online sales until 4pm for evening performances, 10am for matinees. Call the Box Office at 612.377.2224 for assistance.

“Cuando bailamos junto a la música de Bruce es como si se creara algo espiritual en escena. Se genera algo abstracto, porque no hay una historia reconocible.
Sólo es la oportunidad de juntar nuestras almas y que el público nos acompañe en este viaje por la danza y la música…

Alessandra Ferri (El Mercurio, 2016)

En el mundo del ballet y la danza, Alessandra Ferri es considerada una de las artistas más importantes del Siglo XX. Su sensibilidad, capacidad interpretativa y armonía de movimiento, hacen que sus propuestas artísticas hoy, desde un mundo más contemporáneo que clásico, dejen sin aliento.

Stravinsky Concert at the Grand Theatre de Provence, Aix-en-Provence with Esa Pekka Salonen, conducting the London Philharmonica Orchestra, Choreography by Karole Armitage

Esa-Pekka Salonen conductor

STRAVINSKY Symphonies of Wind Instruments, 1947 revision
STRAVINSKY Agon
-interval-
STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring
Across his creative life Stravinsky was continually exploring new ways of presenting ritual through music in order to make it relevant to his own time. Most famously in The Rite of Spring, premièred on the eve of the First World War, the listener is confronted with a powerful and frightening spectacle of human sacrifice. Agon, written after the Second World War, reflects poignantly on personal and collective loss, here imagined with dynamic choreography by 'punk ballerina' Karole Armitage.

In co-production with Festival d’Aix-en-Provence

I Love You.. Peter's Great Creation, Ballet by Lar Lubovitch

To mark the anniversary of the founding of St. Petersburg comes the première of this two-act ballet, created by the American choreographer Lar Lubovitch based on themes from Pushkin’s narrative poem The Bronze Horseman. The production will feature music by Glière, although it will be his Symphony No. 3 rather than the music from his ballet based on the poem. The choreographer, inspired by Pushkin’s work, has said that he will strive to create a fitting tribute to the brilliant Russian poet and to the beauty of the country’s northern capital. Pushkin’s tragic tale will be related through the language of contemporary choreography.

Boston Ballet: Bitches Brew - premiere of a new ballet by Karole Armitage

Boston Ballet is thrilled to commission a world premiere by Karole Armitage, set to the iconic Miles Davis track "Bitches Brew", with costumes designed by Peter Speliopoulos, VP of Design for Donna Karen New York. Known for boundary-breaking dance and drastic classicism that seeks to engage the audience in new and meaningful ways Armitage has choreographed everything from ballet to music videos for Madonna and Michael Jackson. Her works echoes her classical ballet training, in-depth knowledge of the Balanchine repertoire, and the works of her mentor Merce Cunningham.

In her hands, the classic and modern vocabulary of dance is pushed to the limits of what movement can be. Dubbed "the punk ballerina" by Vanity Fair, Armitage recently choreographed the Cirque du Soleil show "Amaluna" and was nominated for a Tony  for the Broadway revival of Hair.

 Karole Armitage's Bitches Brew was made possible in part by a generous gift from John and Janice Doyle. 

Choreography: Karole Armitage  Music: Miles Davis, "Bitches Brew" † Costumes: Peter Steliopoulos  Lighting: Clifton Taylor

"Bitches Brew" - Music of Miles Davis. By arrangements with SONY Music Entertainment , Kobalt Music, and East St. Louis Music, Inc.

Deferred Action at the Dallas Theater Center

By David Lozano and Lee Trull • Directed by David Lozano
A co-production with Cara Mía Theatre Co.

DEMOCRATS. REPUBLICANS. ACTIVISM. POLITICS.
It’s all just another border to cross.

The world premiere of DTC’s collaboration with Cara Mía Theatre Co., Deferred Action focuses on Javier Mejía, one of the immigrants known as Dreamers who arrived in the USA as an undocumented minor. Now, after years in the States, he finds himself caught in the tangle of existing immigration laws, new presidential policies and the harsh reality of living in the shadows. Javier hopes that temporary administrative mechanisms like Deferred Action will be the answer to his dilemma. But will hope be snatched away? Can politicians who say they are the Dreamers’ friends be trusted? Deferred Action follows the lives, loopholes, and dangers of those who dare to dream. Contains mature themes which include drug use, and strong language in English and Spanish. Shows, dates, times, prices, venues, and cast members subject to change.

All the Way at the Dallas Theater Center - Final Week!

Buy Tickets here!

Video trailer here

Winner of the 2014 Tony Award®, this suspenseful Texas-sized new play about one of the most powerful Texans, takes us from the earliest moments of Lyndon B. Johnson’s accidental presidency to his hard-won landslide election one year later. The resident acting companies of Dallas Theater Center and Houston’s Tony Award®-winning Alley Theatre join together to create this monumental play, which will be performed in both cities. Robert Schenkkan’s masterful script paints a gripping portrayal of LBJ, civil rights hero, ruthless bully, and perhaps one of our greatest legislative presidents. With a title harkening back to the slogan for his 1964 campaign, All the Way is a searing and enthralling dramatization that explores political gridlock, strong-arm manipulation, and the morality of politics and power. Contains adult language.
