The Rivals
Directed by Guest Artist Annie Tyson, Richard Brinsley Sheridan's The Rivals explores the complexities of the pursuit of love. A rich young woman, Miss Lydia Languish, insists on marrying a poor man. So what is the wealthy Captain Jack Absolute to do if he wants to win Lydia's heart? Led by the legendary theatrical invention, Mrs. Malaprop, this delightful comedy of manners is filled with outrageous characters and uproarious farcical devices.

Impressions of Interiors: Gilded Age Paintings by Walter Gay
American artist Walter Gay (1856–1937) specialized in painting views of opulent residential interiors in late-19th and early-20th-century America and Europe. John Singer Sargent, Gay's contemporary, is well known for painting the sumptuous clothing and jewels of American society in his fashionable portraits. Gay, in contrast, painted society's rooms—with their silk wall coverings, ornate paneling, 18th-century French furniture, tapestries, and sculptures—in often legendary residences.

Rebel - Hark the Bright Seraphim!
A majestic, highly-virtuosic program of vocal and instrumental music by four quintessential composers: J.S. Bach, Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi, which perfectly blends Sherezade Panthaki's effervescent soprano and the clarion sound of John Thiessen's natural trumpet, with REBEL's signature incisiveness.

The Travellers
The music of The Travellers creates the perfect blend of modern music and traditional western Chinese folk music. Combining the ancient people's special Dombra (traditional Mongolian instrument), the Matouqin (two-string horse head fiddle), the shaman drum, the African drum, the Hoomei. By mixing the Chinese Long Song form together with modern music and chanting, you can feel their passion towards nature and life.

Verdi's Rigoletto
The court jester Rigoletto (Mark Delavan) loves his daughter Gilda (Lyubov Petrova) nearly as much as he hates the Duke of Mantua (Michael W. Lee). The Duke steals Gilda's honor, and the jester must continue to joke, even as he plans revenge. Rigoletto sometimes takes a joke too far for the comfort of his audience. But, this being opera, Rigoletto is met not by boos, but by a curse, when one of his jokes gets a little too personal. Antony Walker conducts.
