January 23, 2019   7:30 PM

They have found a chamber-music haven in one another, forming a spirited, mesmerizing duo that plays works spanning music history, from the Baroque to new works.

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: The Tragedy of King Richard the Second

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: The Tragedy of King Richard the Second

January 29, 2019   7:00 PM



 
Simon Russell Beale plays William Shakespeare’s Richard II, broadcast live from the stage of the Almeida Theatre in London to cinemas.

This visceral new production about the limits of power will be directed by Joe Hill-Gibbins, whose previous plays include Little Revolution at the Almeida and Absolute Hell at the National Theatre.

Richard II, King of England, is irresponsible, foolish and vain. His weak leadership sends his kingdom into disarray and his court into uproar. Seeing no other option but to seize power, the ambitious Bolingbroke challenges the throne and the king’s divine right to rule.

Simon Russell Beale returns to National Theatre Live screens following broadcasts of Timon of Athens and King Lear, and his recent role in the National Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of The Lehman Trilogy.

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Carmen

The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: Carmen

February 2, 2019   11:00 AM

Bizet’s masterpiece of the gypsy seductress who lives by her own rules has had an impact far beyond the opera house. The opera’s melodic sweep is as irresistible as the title character herself, a force of nature who has become a defining female cultural figure. Carmen was a scandal at its premiere but soon after became a triumphal success and has remained one of the most frequently staged operas in the world.

Mezzo-soprano Clémentine Margaine reprises her remarkable portrayal of opera’s ultimate seductress, a triumph in her 2017 debut performances, with impassioned tenors Yonghoon Lee and Roberto Alagna as her lover, Don José. Omer Meir Wellber and Louis Langrée share conducting duties for Sir Richard Eyre’s powerful production, a Met favorite since its 2009 premiere.

Approx. runtime: 3:41 [1 Intermission]

Tickets: $22-$28 | Students: $15
