The whole family will be charmed by this age-old tale of the redemptive power of true love. When the evil fairy Carabosse isn’t invited to the royal christening of Princess Aurora, she attends anyway and casts a spiteful curse upon the baby: on her 16th birthday, she will prick her finger and die. However, the kind fairy Lilac alters the spell causing the princess to sleep for 100 years until awakened by the kiss from a prince. Under the direction of the legendary Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko, the company brings this well-loved fairytale to life with exquisite skill, lush sets, and opulent costumes.

Love Songs is a composition by Candian/Serbian composer Ana Sokolovic. In its original form, it breaks the bonds of narrative to be an hour-long free-form exploration of the various natures of human love. Written for one unaccompanied soprano, the songs set various poems about love in all its forms — maternal, platonic, amorous, erotic — to music. At times silly, sad, sexy, strange, these songs are broken up by movements Sokolovic calls DOVES, in which the words “I Love You” are spoken and sung in hundred of languages. This work is also intended to be free to the performer’s interpretation, and for this late night cabaret experience, Maribeth Diggle (from IN Series’ 2019 production of Butterfly) returns from Belgium to create a performance experience that blends Sokolovic’s composition with elements of free improvisation, collaboration with Baltimore vocal-percussion and beat-box artist Shodekeh, movement and play, and audience live participation in creating the work.
Here Be Sirens, by American Kate Soper, explores with wit, humor, and pathos, the experience of Homer’s Odyssean three singers. Here Be Sirens is a remarkable work by a remarkable composer. At once whimsical, witty, wondrous, and weird, this opera portrays the three mythical sirens pondering the meaning of their own beings, the tension of their history and their future, between brief pauses when they woo, wound, and consume the poor sailors passing by. Performed by three sopranos and a piano they themselves manipulate, the work combines singing, speaking, extended vocal techniques, and a wry approach to lyrical anthropology which conjures laughter and contemplation. Kate Soper is without doubt one the most exciting composers in America today, with a truly original voice as both composer and a soprano. Here Be Sirens is just one of her many surprising and powerful compositions for female voices, which use clarity and intelligence to shatter preconceived notions of form and balance.

Back by popular demand! An audience favorite at JxJ 2019. When Yakov Cohen’s (Shuli Rand,Ushpizin) daughter is expelled from school for “ethnic reasons,” he decides to fight back. It’s 1983, and Cohen is a regular Jerusalemite with no money, connections or political experience. What he has in spades, however, is the passionate will to take action on behalf of Sephardic Jews who’ve too long been treated as second class citizens. The Unorthodox brings to life the stunning rise of Israel’s Shas political party, through the story of Cohen’s improbable campaign — one full of love for his fellow man and equally animated by a great sense of humor and a whole lot of rage. This runaway hit was the Opening Night film at the Jerusalem International Film Festival, the Miami Jewish Film Festival and the Seattle Jewish Film Festival.

Artistic Director Simon Godwin makes his directorial debut at the Shakespeare Theatre Company with a re-staging of his recent, acclaimed production of Timon of Athens, featuring Olivier Award-winner Kathryn Hunter in an “astonishing performance” (The Guardian). Timon lives in a golden world of opulence and generosity, throwing wild parties attended by politicians, artists, and the celebrities of Athens. When she loses her wealth and her friends abandon her, Timon takes to the forest, exchanging her luxurious gowns for sackcloth and plotting revenge against the city she loves. Godwin’s daring take on this rarely produced play yields “a parable for our times… and perhaps a nifty touchstone for spiritual renewal” (Daily Telegraph).
The town is sure to be talking about the latest from the Woolly Mammoth. In what some might call a tragically timely play, two dinner parties take place — one is a gathering of mid-to-upper class liberals who’re struggling to come to terms with the surprising state of the union in 2017, while the other is Donald Trump’s infamous meal with former FBI Director James Comey. Meanwhile, an adoptee from Kenya tries to figure out his place in this strange new world.

Well, that … plus a certain polymath-inventor, Charles Babbage, famous as “the father of the computer.” It’s true that Babbage invented the hardware — the Analytic Engine — but the language, the song, the soul of the thing, the programming: that was all Ada.

With so many cameos, appearances and credits, Kym Whitley is a certified comedy star. She’s one of those rare individuals to whom the phrase “renaissance woman” might be applied.

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Kym is actually a comedienne, actress, activist, author and — perhaps most importantly — a mother.
