Alexander Kasser Theater

Tickets: $20*

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Michael Bloom

Once considered a strangely discordant play, The Winter’s Tale has become an evergreen precisely because of its swerves—from tragedy to comedy, revenge to romance, psychological realism to fantasy. In this late-Shakespeare play, the irrational jealousy of a king toward his faithful wife unleashes a kaleidoscopic fable of revenge, loyalty, and redemption that now seems strikingly modern.

John J. Cali School of Music Presents:

February 25
• 8 p.m.

Jed Leschowitz Recital Hall

Admission Free
Under the baton of Ken Lam, Cali School's faculty and students will be joined by Denyce Graves for a performance of Gustav Mahler’s master work Das Lied von der Erde (the Schoenberg/Riehn chamber version).
Mezzo Soprano soloist, Denyce Graves, is recognized worldwide as one of today's most exciting vocal stars who continues to gather unparalleled popular and critical acclaim in performances on four continents. Her career has taken her to the world's great opera houses and concert halls. The combination of her expressive, rich vocalism, elegant stage presence, and exciting theatrical abilities allows her to pursue a wide breadth of operatic portrayals as well as delight audiences in concert and recital appearances.
Tenor soloist, Robert Cart, is the Director of the Cali School. He has performed more than 15 leading roles throughout the United States and Europe in Vienna, Munich, London, New York and Washington, DC, under such conductors as Bernstein, Leppard and Zinman.

Costumes by Clifford Portier

East Coast Premiere
In the exuberant Rocco, choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten transform the Alexander Kasser Theater stage into a boxing ring, where every seat is ringside.  Dancers become boxers in a high-stakes match, challenging each other with punches and strikes, fast footwork and ingenious tactics. Inspired by the classic Italian film, Rocco & His Brothers, Rocco depicts brotherly love and the struggle for a better life with dazzling physical virtuosity.

All seating is onstage for this production. Seating is general admission.Please contact the box office at 973-655-5112 with any questions about seating.

*No charge for University-enrolled undergraduates
