Murphy/Smith Dance Collective - Sound Project
Murphy/Smith Dance Collective, formed in 2011 by Pittsburgh-based choreographers Jamie Erin Murphy and Renee Danielle Smith, explores the relationship between sound and human instinct.

So what can happen when our familiar soundscape becomes distorted or even disappears?

Tales of Hoffmann - Retold
Hoffmann is obsessed with three beautiful women—or is it one mercurial woman, split into three different personalities? The great story of E.T.A. Hoffmann's love life is retold in a new version incorporating some of the poet-composer’s own music. International star Robert Chafin (Covent Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper) plays Hoffmann.
