The Met Live in HD: "Cavalleria Rusticana" and "Pagliacci" at Peterborough Players

The Met Live in HD: "Cavalleria Rusticana" by Mascagni" and "Pagliacci" by Leoncavallo Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK AND OTHER NONSENSE BY LEWIS CARROLL

24 April - 10 May, Pontine Theatre premieres its original stage adaptation of Lewis Carroll's, The Hunting of the Snark. Performances are offered Fridays @7:30, Saturdays @4 & Sundays @2. Tickets are $24 and may be purchased online at www.pontine.org. Pontine's West End Studio Theatre is located at 959 Islington Street, Portsmouth NH. Contact Pontine: [email protected] / 603-436-6660 Pontine’s Artistic Directors, Marguerite Mathews and Greg Gathers present a Victorian Toy Theatre extravaganza celebrating the master of English nonsense verse, Lewis Carroll (Charles L. Dodgson). In 1876, following the success of the “Alice” books, Carroll produced “The Hunting of the Snark,” a fantastical nonsense poem that follows the misbegotten voyage of a misfit crew of tradesmen, plus one beaver, who set off in pursuit of the mythical Snark. In Pontine’s newest work “The Snark” and other Carroll poems are brought imaginatively to life in a miniature cardboard theatre inspired by a popular 19th century parlor entertainment.
