Director Simon McBurney and Complicite, with the Setagaya Public Theatre, perform a mesmerizing work of theater inspired by the provocative writings of Jun'ichiro Tanizaki. The tale elegantly reconstructs a love story between a blind musician and her servant lover in 19th-century Japan. An extraordinary theatrical performance that beautifully animates the deeper aspects of love and all of its intricacies.
Immerse yourself into The Blind, an a cappella opera by Lera Auerbach and directed by John La Bouchardiere. A new dimension of opera that tells the story of twelve nameless characters stranded on a desert island waiting for a rescue that never arrives. The libretto is loosely based on the play Les aveugles, by Maurice Maeterlinck. Please note: Audience members will be blindfolded for the duration of the performance.
Saxophonist, singer, and bandleader Ray Gelato has been instrumental in the swing revival in the UK, taking cues from legendary entertainers like Louis Prima. Grabbing the best of jump blues and the Italian songbook, Gelato and his band have returned long-lost favorites by Paulo Conte, Fred Buscaglione, and Renato Carasone to their rightful place: lighting up the dancefloor with mambo italiano. Backing Gelato on this special evening is Philly's swingin' big band extraordinaire, the City Rhythm Orchestra.
