An Evening of American Song: George Crumb & Charles Ives

27 July 7:30pm Ian Hanger Recital Hall
27 July 7:30pm Ian Hanger Recital Hall

Amber Evans (soprano) and Sam Mitchell (piano) present George Crumb’s Apparition, interspersed with songs by Charles Ives. American biographer Jan Swafford called Charles Ives a “Walt Whitman of sound,” with an innate ability to write pieces influenced heavily by traditional European styles through a distinctly American compositional style. George Crumb in turn was an avid admirer of Ives’ writing. The featured pieces for this program invites the listener to be part of this mutual admiration society, through the lens of two of America’s most influential composers of the twentieth century.

Tickets are $20 at the door. $15 concession tickets are also available.

Based on the 1932 novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation, 42nd Street is a Tony and Olivier Award winning musical with lyrics by Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer and music by Harry Warren. In addition to songs from the 1933 film 42nd Street, it includes songs that Dubin and Warren wrote for many other films at around the same time.

The musical is set at the height of the Great Depression and tells the story of talented young performer Peggy Sawyer. With stars in her eyes and armed with her tap shoes, Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown in Pennsylvania. Her talent catches the eye of famed Great White Way (Broadway) director Julian Marsh, who gives her a role in the chorus of Pretty Lady, a musical he is attempting to mount. Pretty Lady stars Dorothy Brock, a diva whose best days are behind her, and who dislikes Peggy instantly. When Dorothy is injured shortly before the show opens, Julian is persuaded to have Peggy take the leading role. Peggy’s rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business dreams.

42nd Street is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious, poignant, thought-provoking work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Boasting a large, zany cast of characters, the play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: what happened to Judas Iscariot? The facts (we think!) we know are these: Judas was the disciple of Jesus who betrayed his friend and teacher to the authorities. He is seen as the man responsible for Jesus’s death; afterwards, Judas fell into despair and hung himself from an olive tree; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds deep in Hell, and will continue to do so for all eternity. Is that really fair? Was Judas the duplicitous master of his own fate, a much-suffering pawn used for Jesus’s ends, or just a man who made a mistake?

The play uses flashbacks to an imagined childhood and lawyers who call for the testimonies of such witnesses as Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Saint Monica, Sigmund Freud, and Satan.

He is seen as the man responsible for Jesus’s death; afterwards, Judas fell into despair and hung himself from an olive tree; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds deep in Hell, and will continue to do so for all eternity. Is that really fair? Was Judas the duplicitous master of his own fate, a much-suffering pawn used for Jesus’s ends, or just a man who made a mistake?

The play uses flashbacks to an imagined childhood and lawyers who call for the testimonies of such witnesses as Mother Teresa, Caiaphas, Saint Monica, Sigmund Freud, and Satan.

Set in a courtroom in Purgatory, The Last Days of Judas Iscariot is a hilarious, poignant, thought-provoking work by Pulitzer-prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Boasting a large, zany cast of characters, the play asks one of the most plaguing questions in the Christian ideology: what happened to Judas Iscariot? The facts (we think!) we know are these: Judas was the disciple of Jesus who betrayed his friend and teacher to the authorities. He is seen as the man responsible for Jesus’s death; afterwards, Judas fell into despair and hung himself from an olive tree; since then, he has been suffering for his deeds deep in Hell, and will continue to do so for all eternity. Is that really fair? Was Judas the duplicitous master of his own fate, a much-suffering pawn used for Jesus’s ends, or just a man who made a mistake?

The Queen of the Fairies meets Britain’s legal establishment in this hilarious comic opera from the masters of the genre, Gilbert & Sullivan. Since its sparkling 1882 premiere at London’s new Savoy Theatre, the fantastical satire Iolanthe has delighted audiences with its clever combination of romance, humor, political satire, and the memorable musical numbers that made Gilbert and Sullivan household names. Set in the world of the fairies and the mortal world, this fantasy story centers on the titular character, Iolanthe, who falls in love with a mortal man, bearing him a child who must tackle the world of love as half man, half fairy. A fantastic (in the true sense of the word) mélange of Victorian pantomime and the British Legal establishment, ‘Iolanthe’ is a satire on the power of hereditary rule and the class system, that classic Victorian sacred cow. And wherever the Victorians had their sacred cows, there was WS Gilbert ready to milk them for all the laughs he could get. The operas are, of course still relevant today because those sacred cows are still with us, they are just fatter! This beloved classic is still a timeless favorite of opera companies, schools, and concert stages all over the world. Our production will be directed by Stuart Maunder, with music under the baton of Conductor Johannes Fritzsch.

Heathers The Musical is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: the Heathers. But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet.
