Silent Night

February 21 - March 1, 2015
Muriel Kauffman Theatre

Peace during the bloodiest of wars.

Enemies find friendship if only for one day. Silent Night is a story based on real events that took place during World War I, when the Scottish, French and Germans came together in agreement to a ceasefire, truce and brotherhood on Christmas Eve.

The set design is as moving as the story. Literally. The battlefield is staged on a turntable with projected imagery. This Pulitzer Prize-winning opera by Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell premiered in 2011.

Estimated runtime: 2 hours and 45 minutes including one intermission
Sung in English, German, French, Italian and Latin with English titles

Tosca

April 18 - April 26, 2015
Muriel Kauffman Theatre

Love and the ultimate double cross.

Giacomo Puccini’s emotionally charged Tosca explores the dark side of human emotion while set to some of his most passionate and memorable music. It’s a story filled with lies, lust and corruption as Floria Tosca stars in a role she never desired. When the love of her life is captured by a corrupt police chief, she is forced to make the ultimate bargain, to no avail. This is a traditional presentation of a true classic, filled with heartbreaking arias and touching love duets.

Estimated runtime: 2 hours and 45 minutes including two intermissions
Sung in Italian with English and Italian titles
