Upcoming Productions & Full Calendar
LSU Opera Presents: Falstaff
Music by Giuseppe Verdi, Libretto by Arrigo Boito
November 16th - 19th | Claude L. Shaver Theatre
Witness the legendary Giuseppe Verdi's final opera - a beautiful (and hilarious) tale of secrecy, jealousy, and the all-too-human follies of Shakespeare's famous "portly knight", Sir John Falstaff. Don't miss out on this chance to see one of lyric theatre's greatest masterpieces!
Considering Matthew Shepard
Special Presentation by the LSU A Cappella Choir
November 3rd | 7:30pm | LSU Student Union Theatre
Grammy Award winning composer Craig Hella Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard is a brilliant pastiche of musical styles. Written in the form of a “passion-oratorio,” this work explores diversity, marginalization, and our society's response to acts of violence, hate and intolerance.
Swine Palace: The Mountaintop
Story by Katori Hall, Directed by Femi Euba
November 8th - 19th | Reilly Theatre
A re-imagined retelling of Martin Luther King Jr.'s last night on Earth, Katori Hall's The Mountaintop portrays King as a deeply passionate and flawed human being. His final night is spent alongside a mysterious and sassy hotel maid who encourages King to delve deeper into his hopes and dreams.
