BOLSHOI: "Ivan the Terrible" at Peterborough Players

BOLSHOI: "Ivan the Terrible" Music by Sergei Prokofiev; Choreography and Libretto by Yuri Grigorovich As young Ivan IV is crowned, he has to choose one of the 13 Boyar daughters to be his wife and tsarina. He selects Anastasia, and the two eventually fall deeply in love. When the Boyars plot against him and poison his beloved wife, Tsar Ivan finds himself surrounded by enemies. Haunted by dark thoughts and phantoms, he slowly sinks into madness. Drawing on the music composed by Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich's powerful and fascinating epic dramatises Ivan the Terrible's controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigour, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colours of medieval Russia. Recently revived, Ivan the Terrible is an essential part of the company's repertoire, a 20th-century classic and a wonderful theatrical experience.

New Hampshire Theatre Project's Intelligent Theatre Festival

The third annual Intelligent Theatre Festival brings new and exciting changes to this community playreading program. In past years, the Festival has been held over one or two weekends; in 2015 the Festival will run from April to June and will showcase new voices from around the community. Coming up first on Sunday, April 19 is Contra Dance, the first public reading of a delightful new script about north country New Hampshire by Tamworth writer Caroline Nesbitt. Just like the dance for which it is named, Contra Dance illuminates how our lives change, time bends us, loved ones leave us, our towns and all the things we hold dear evolve beyond recognition, sometimes even beyond hope. But there is a pattern to it, and if we’re lucky, the dance always brings us home. Contra Dance is directed by Paul Kerry, and will feature actors from the Tamworth area along with local readers Rob Becker and Colleen Madden. The playreading and discussion will be held on Sunday, April 19, 2 pm, at Portsmouth’s historic Langdon House. Suggested donation is $10. Playwright Caroline Nesbitt is a writer and theatre professional who has lived on the edge of the White Mountain National Forest for over forty years. She is the founder of the educational Shakespeare Company Advice To The Players, whose productions she still often acts in or directs. She has been a fulltime Stage Manager at The Barnstormers Theatre, appeared in productions from Mt. Washington Valley Theatre Company to New Art Theatre to Seacoast Rep, and a variety of film work. Caroline has written essays, fiction and theatre reviews for American Theatre, The Boston Globe, and numerous other national and regional publications. Her novel, Ride On The Curl’d Clouds, is available on Amazon.com. Contra Dance is her first full length play. PLEASE NOTE: Location of playreading is: Gov. John Langdon House 143 Pleasant Street Portsmouth, N.H. 03801

Watch & Discuss Rights & Reds, part of a “Challenges and Celebrations” NH film series

Rights & Reds documents the story of New Hampshire’s Cold War investigation of subversive activities. Compelling, provocative, in some ways unbelievable, it did all happen right here. People were sent to jail for refusing to “name names.” Jobs were lost, phones were tapped, informers informed, but no communists were ever found plotting to over through the State House. Filmmaker John Gfroerer facilitates this documentary and discussion, which explores the story of a confrontation between people who thought they were protecting the Bill of Rights and people who thought the Bill of Rights should protect them. Most importantly, it is the story of people who had the courage to stand up for what they believed. Produced with the N.H. Bar Association and the N.H. Humanities Council. Recognized by the National Bar Association, this documentary prompted the New Hampshire Legislature to repeal the state’s Subversive Activities Law. Rights & Reds is part of the Historical Society of Cheshire County’s 2015 free film series “Challenges & Celebrations in New Hampshire.”

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.

His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues. Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, "Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences." Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor Today, Tom Rush lives in Vermont when he's not touring. His voice has grown even richer and more melodic with training and time, and his music, like a fine wine, has matured and ripened in the blending of traditional and modern influences. He's doing what he loves, and what audiences love him for: writing and playing ...passionately, tenderly...knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times.

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.

Derry Public Library and the New Hampshire Humanities Council are delighted to present a special performance and discussion in honor of National Poetry Month, 2015. Unlaunch’d Voices is a one-man play written by Michael Keamy based on the writings of the 19th Century poet, Walt Whitman. Stephen Collins will portray America’s most well-known poet in a retrospective monologue that allows the audience to glimpse both the private man and the literary persona, “Walt Whitman.” The play itself follows the chronological unfolding of Whitman’s poetic voice and vision, opening with the great claim that Whitman sought to give America its “voice,” to become “America’s poet.” Don’t miss this extra-special program at Derry Public Library, Saturday April 25, at 1:00 pm, made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

We will present the world premiere of a new quartet for oboe and strings by James Primosch, an exquisite arrangement of Haydn’s Symphony #97 for oboe and strings, and we conclude with the C minor string quartet of Brahms.

They have performed concerts extensively throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia as part of Apple Hill’s innovative Playing for Peace™ program. As 21st-century musicians, the quartet is deeply committed to the commissioning of new works. Their recent commission by composer and long-time “Apple Hiller” Daniel Sedgwick was premiered at Apple Hill in 2009 and performed to critical acclaim throughout the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East. Their project, “Around the World with Playing for Peace™“, features the rich multicultural repertoire of works and compositions associated with countries visited through thePlaying for Peace™ program, as seen through the lens of the string quartet.

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.
