Eve Apart
Alia Musica, Chattanooga's New Dischord, and soprano Desiree Soteres give the Pittsburgh premiere of Tim Hinck's multimedia opera, Eve Apart, exploring primal themes of feminine powers and giving them a stark and modern relevance. Eve Apart employs 10 singers, acoustic and electronic musical instruments, video, and choreography to explore gender identity, myth, religious paradigms and human nature. Libretto by Pittsburgh's Kip Soteres.

F295 Symposium
Devoted to alternative photographic processes, the F295 Symposium features two days of lectures, a weekend of hands-on workshops taught by world-renowned masters, its largest trade show to date, two short films from the Carnegie's Hillman Photography Initiative, multiple exhibitions, portfolio sharing and discussion, networking, and more.

Sing On! Via
Repertoire chosen to accentuate the purity and clarity of young, trained voices includes Laudamus Te by Vivaldi, When Children Sing by Mary Goetze, My Heart Soars by Ruth Watson Henderson and Al Shlosha D'Varim by Allan Naplan, as well as many delightfully-arranged folk songs.

Buyer & Cellar
Barbra Streisand's coffee table book, My Passion for Design, inspired this hilarious fictional account of what goes on in her Malibu estate's basement, which has become an arcade of shops displaying the fabulous stuff the superstar has collected. Alex is the clerk of this mall whose only customer is Babs herself, and the nature of their relationship is both friend and faux. Entertainment Weekly says "This show will go down like butta!"

Dance and Flight
Principal Bassoonist Nancy Goeres will enchant in the Pittsburgh premiere of David Ludwig's "Pictures from the Floating World." Debussy's languid impressionistic style will be heard in the opening work, "Iberia." Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena also brings dances from his home country and Argentina in suites from De Falla's opera "La Vida Breve," and Ginastera's rhythmic and passionate ballets "Panambi" and "Estancia."
