Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: <strong><i>The Madness of George III</strong></i>

Lensic Presents NT Live in HD: The Madness of George III

November 27, 2018   7:00 PM

Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.

Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The cast of this new production includes Olivier Award-winners Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Wolf Hall, NT Live Coriolanus) in the title role, and Adrian Scarborough (Gavin and Stacey, Upstairs Downstairs, After the Dance).

It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behavior is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Mark Morris has been hailed as the “the most successful and influential choreographer alive, and indisputably the most musical” (New York Times). In addition to creating over 150 works for the Mark Morris Dance Group, he conducts orchestras, directs opera, and choreographs for ballet companies worldwide. Morris’ work is acclaimed for its ingenuity, musicality, wit, and humanity.

In 2015, Morris was inducted into the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Formed in 1980, the internationally-renowned Mark Morris Dance Group (MMDG) has received “highest praise for their technical aplomb, their musicality, and their sheer human authenticity” (Bloomberg News). Live music and community engagement are vital components of the Dance Group. It has toured with its own musicians, the MMDG Music Ensemble, since 1996, and regularly collaborates with orchestras and opera companies around the world. MMDG’s film and television projects include Dido and Aeneas, The Hard Nut, Falling Down Stairs, the U.K.’s South Bank Show, and Live from Lincoln Center. In 2015 Morris’ signature work L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato premiered on PBS’ Great Performances.

Performance Santa Fe presents Catherine Russell and John Pizzarelli

Such is the case with Catherine Russell and John Pizzarelli’s A Salute to Billie Holiday & Frank Sinatra. Russell, who has been called “a legend hiding in plain sight,” and Pizzarelli, who’s been dubbed “hip with a wink,” embody the legends they cover, in a program that is part tribute and part personal introduction to the people who made this music famous.

Underwritten by Robin Black; Mary and Tim Mitchell.

All of Me, What a Little Moonlight Will Do, God Bless The Child, With Thee I Swing, Them There Eyes, I Cover the Waterfront

Performance Santa Fe presents All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

Performance Santa Fe presents All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

December 20, 2018   7:30 PM

For many years, stories of the World War I, Christmas Truce of 1914 were mostly decried as myths, and then largely forgotten to the horrors of the next world war. But pockets of impromptu truces actually did occur between opposing forces on that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. All Is Calm uses English dialogue and carol singing in the various languages heard up and down the lines that Christmas, before returning its troops to the realities of war.

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

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

December 22, 2018   11:00 AM

 


 

Verdi’s La Traviata survived a notoriously unsuccessful opening night to become one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s richly textured new production, featuring a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelsey is Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love. Later performances feature Anita Hartig, Stephen Costello, Artur Rucinski, and Plácido Domingo. Approx. runtime: 3:32 [2 Intermissions]

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