October 25 - 28, 2018  |  Shaver Theatre

Composed in 1877-78, Tchaikovsky’s musical adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin is widely considered Russia’s most popular opera. Its “lyrical scenes in three acts” evoke a world of bourgeois country life under the Czars, in a score that ranges from moments of sweeping beauty to scenes of passionate intimacy and jealousy. 

Directed by Octavio Cardenas
Conducted by Michael Borowitz

November 7 - 18, 2018  |  Reilly Theatre

It’s July 6, 1942, Amsterdam. Because they are Jews, the Frank and van Daan families move into hiding. The play follows the lives of these families as they live their lives in hiding, constantly in fear of being discovered. Anne’s words are present throughout, providing a gateway into the most intimate and personal moments with the weight of history.
