The Met Opera Live in HD: Turandot (Puccini)

The Met Opera Live in HD: Turandot (Puccini)

Franco Zeffirelli’s spectacular production returns to cinemas, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, conducting his first Puccini opera with the company. Powerhouse soprano Christine Goerke takes on the icy title princess, alongside tenor Roberto Aronica as the unknown prince vying for her love.

Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano.

Hazen Union Drama Club - Once Upon a Mattress

Hazen Union Drama Club - Once Upon a Mattress

Based upon the famous fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, Once Upon a Mattress tells the story of a Princess of noble birth, unable to sleep on a bed despite its many stacked mattresses, because of a tiny pea placed underneath the bottom layer. The kingdom is an unhappy one. King Sextimus has been struck dumb by a witch’s curse and is condemned not to speak again; Queen Agravia has assumed power and has decreed that no one in the Kingdom may wed until Prince Dauntless is married to a true princess of royal blood. So far the Queen has tested the eligibility of eleven applicants and each has failed the almost impossible tests the Queen has devised. The Knights and Ladies of the Court are most distressed by the situation but the most concerned are Lady Larken and her handsome lover, Sir Harry. A rollicking tale of challenge and deceit unfolds to the final curtain, where, in true fairy tale form, all’s well that ends well.

Holiday Punch puppet show

Holiday Punch puppet show

Punch and Judy are almost ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. They’ve got the stuffing, the sweet potatoes, and the cranberry sauce. The only thing they are missing is the turkey. Audiences will split their sides laughing as Mr. Punch tries to catch the main dish, while avoiding crocodiles, his badly behaved baby and his dog Toby, (who looks suspiciously like a skunk). The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump.

Modern Times Theater has been adapting and updating Punch and Judy shows for over a decade. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater. Parents themselves, they strive to present quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

Space is limited to 70 seats in our theater. Advance purchase is strongly recommended!

Join us after the puppet show for a JUNK MUSIC & SOUND EXPERIMENTATION WORKSHOP. Space is limited. rtistreevt.org/holiday-punch-punch-and-judy-puppet-show.html

Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders

Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders

November 29, 3pm & 7pm

Tickets: $25-$55

Recommended for ages 8 years and up.

Combining breathtaking visuals with Vitaly’s captivating style, An Evening of Wonders is an interactive theatrical experience that takes the audience on a magical journey. Along the way, Vitaly blends art and illusion to illustrate the story of his transformation from a boy with a dream to a man with a vision—the vision of a world where the rules of reality do not exist. In this world paintings spring to life, photographs become mini-movies, and audience members see their faces vanish from their own driver’s licenses. Even time itself reverses as bare broken branches visibly repair and renew themselves with the green leaves of spring.

Featuring some of the most original illusions ever witnessed—many of which touch on tender topics such as love, loss, and growing old—Vitaly’s An Evening of Wonders does more than entertain. It moves, inspires, and instills within all who experience it a fresh perspective on life and a greater realization that ours is a world of beauty and wonder.
