Russian Masterpieces
Guest conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier returns with a program of early 20th-century Russian music. Young 2011 Tchaikovsky Competition winner Daniil Trifonov performs Prokofiev's tumultuous and technically-demanding Piano Concerto #2. Then, Totelier conducts Rachmaninoff's passionate and sweeping Symphony #2, which restored the composer's confidence after the poorly-received First.

Blue/Orange
Joe Penhall's Olivier Award-winning Blue/Orange is a caustically funny play about race and the mental health system. In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient (Rico Parker) claims to be the son of an African dictator--a story that seems unnervingly plausible. What begins as a battle of wills between a young idealistic doctor (David Whalen) and his jaded superior (Sam Tsoutsouvas) over the appropriate course of treatment for his patient, eventually turns into something altogether different. Andrew S. Paul, director; Mark Clayton Southers, producer.

Turn of the Screw
Adapted by Jeffery Hatcher, from the novella by Henry James, Turn of the Screw is "a total theatrical experience, a challenge for the imagination." An old English Manor House is filled with secrets, strange movements flicker in the underbrush, unidentifiable cries are heard in the moonlight, and abrupt coldness and breezes touch your imagination. Do the ghosts haunt the children? Or is it just her imagination? Joe Warik directs.
