Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci
 
Two ribald operas dramatize adulterous love affairs, murder and everything in between.

However, inspired by Falconer's earnestness and his reawakened spirit, Gantry inserts one spectacle too many and risks blowing up the entire operation.

The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)  
Hylton Performing Arts Center The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!)
 
It's one thing to lampoon Broadway's greatest musicals, it's quite another to satirize them with such zest and imagination, you wind up creating another great musical in the process. The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is exactly that kind of show, one that aims to make fun of musical theater ... only to prove the genre's greatness beyond any doubt. The show takes a simple plot -- "I can't pay the rent!" -- and spins it five different times, each in the style of a genius composer or composing team, including Rodgers & Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The result is a quintet of brilliant tributes to Broadway's best, packed with zingers, witty references and truly great songs. Susy Moorstein directs a fresh production of this Drama Desk-nominated off-Broadway hit for Prince William Little Theatre.

Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride  
Capitol Hill Arts Workshop Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride
 
The New York Times recently remarked that "Gilbert's pen was rarely sharper" than when he first sketched the characters of Patience, or Bunthorne's Bride. Lampooning England's 19th century aesthetic movement, Patience is a comic opera that marked the sixth operatic collaboration between Gilbert and composer Sullivan when it debuted way back in 1881. Poking fun at the self-indulgent artistic output of England's poets circa the 1870s and '80s, this satire finds a gaggle of lovesick maidens falling for a smarmy poet, Bunthorne, who in turn finds himself smitten with a milkmaid by the name of Patience. But Patience is far more taken with cows than she is couplets, and the platoon of soldiers who have just returned home are none too happy to find their ladies -- the aforementioned lovesick maidens -- smitten with an artsy-fartsy fake.

Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, surrounded by a restive, starving populace, The Veil weaves Ireland's troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time.
