Alexander Kasser Theater
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:

Jed Leschowitz Recital Hall
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).

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.

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.
