The Lensic and The Santa Fe Opera present The Met Live in HD: The Met Live in HD: La Fanciulla del West

October 27, 2018   11:00 AM

[Live]

 



 
Puccini’s “American” opera, based on David Belasco’s play The Girl of the Golden West, had its glamorous and highly publicized world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera, with the composer in the audience. The drama is set during the California Gold Rush, and the girl of the title is one of Puccini’s most appealing heroines—a strong, independent woman determined to win the man she loves. Although it fell out of favor with audiences for a few decades following its original success, Fanciulla has rebounded in popularity in recent years and is now counted among Puccini’s best works.

Soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek sings Puccini’s gun-slinging heroine in this romantic epic of the Wild West, with the heralded return of tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the role of the outlaw she loves. Tenor Yusif Eyvazov also sings some performances. Baritone Željko Lucic is the vigilante sheriff Jack Rance, and Marco Armiliato conducts. Approx. runtime: 3:42 [2 Intermissions]

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

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: <strong><i>Frankenstein</strong></i>

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: Frankenstein

October 29, 2018   7:00 PM

Frankenstein returns to international cinemas to mark the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s most famous novel.

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal. Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.

Lensic Presents Big Screen Classics: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Lensic Presents Big Screen Classics: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

October 31, 2018   7:00 PM

Join us for a special Halloween screening of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) an American science fiction horror film produced by Walter Wanger, directed by Don Siegel, that stars Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter. The black-and-white film, shot in Superscope, was partially done in a film noir style. Daniel Mainwaring adapted the screenplay from Jack Finney's 1954 science fiction novel The Body Snatchers.[2] The film was released by Allied Artists Pictures as a double feature with the British science fiction film The Atomic Man.

The film's storyline concerns an extraterrestrial invasion that begins in the fictional California town of Santa Mira. Alien plant spores have fallen from space and grown into large seed pods, each one capable of reproducing a duplicate replacement copy of each human. As each pod reaches full development, it assimilates the physical characteristics, memories, and personalities of each sleeping person placed near it; these duplicates, however, are devoid of all human emotion. Little by little, a local doctor uncovers this "quiet" invasion and attempts to stop it.

Performance Santa Fe presents Veronica Swift

Performance Santa Fe presents Veronica Swift

November 9, 2018   7:30 PM

 


 

If you haven’t heard the name Veronica Swift, it’s time you do. Still in her early 20s, Swift is not only equally comfortable singing bebop, swing, tunes from the Great American Songbook, and beyond, she inhabits these various styles like a veteran performer of each era. Swift, who first performed at the Telluride Jazz Festival at age 10, and headlined there two years ago, moves effortlessly from soulful ballads to her skimming scat. She is generation-next in jazz.

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

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

November 10, 2018   11:00 AM

A Metropolitan Opera premiere by special arrangement with Universal Pictures. It examines the cost of freedom, the limitations of forgiveness and the impossibility of escaping the past, in music that is direct and powerful.

A young woman makes her way through life by embezzling from her employers, before she moves on and changes her identity. When her current boss Mark Rutland catches her red-handed, he blackmails her into a loveless marriage. Marnie is left with no choice but to confront the hidden trauma from her past.

Composer Nico Muhly unveils his second new opera for the Met with this gripping reimagining of Winston Graham’s novel, set in the 1950s, about a beautiful, mysterious young woman who assumes multiple identities. Director Michael Mayer and his creative team have devised a fast-moving, cinematic world for this exhilarating story of denial and deceit, which also inspired a film by Alfred Hitchcock. Mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard sings the enigmatic Marnie, and baritone Christopher Maltman is the man who pursues her—with disastrous results. Robert Spano conducts. Approx. runtime: 3:17 [1 Intermission]

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