Opera | Verdi's Attila (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


In his attempt to conquer the world, Attila the Hun destroys all that lies in his path. Nothing seems to be able to halt his advance until a young female captive swears to avenge her father's death. It is hard to imagine a more fitting setting for Verdi's incendiary drama Attila than Sofia Opera and Ballet's production staged in front of the historic fortress of Tsarevets, one of the best loved monuments in Bulgaria. The composer's contribution to the emerging Italian patriotism with the story of the fall of Attila the Hun was greeted with enthusiasm by his contemporaries.

Theater | Franz Kafka's Letter to My Father, 'Outstanding' - Broadway World (virtual)


"Appropriately Kafkaesque - existential, nightmarish, ambivalent and oddly compelling" - Stage Buddy In 1919, an ailing Franz Kafka wrote a letter to his father. In it he put his anger, his fear, his guilt, his loneliness, his ingratitude, his debt, his despair, his joy, his pride, his confusion, his laughter, his hate, his memory, his shame, his tears, his disgust at everything his father represented and his profound hope that he might one day measure up to such a remarkable man. The letter never reached its destination. Now, live from quarantine, you are invited to a curious event -- part YouTube meltdown, part hidden-camera show, part seance -- as M-34 Productions attempts to deliver it at last. Directed by James Rutherford, and performed by Michael Guagno.

Tour | Fort Yellowstone - A Cultural Walk Through Time (virtual)


Take a wander though Fort Yellowstone, built when the US Army was administering the world's first National Park, while exploring both ancient and modern human stories of Yellowstone. Though Yellowstone was set aside for its geologic wonders, the world's first National Park is steeped in human history. From earliest hunters leaving evidence of their passing close to 11,000 years ago, to modern Native people who still have a deep connection with this landscape, to the army and eventually the National Park Service, and for the visitors from around the world who pass through today, Yellowstone is not just a natural park, but a cultural one as well.
