Musical | Sweet Land: "a heart-warming and heartwinning piece of musical theater" (virtual)


A poignant, lyrical celebration of land, love, and the American immigrant experience. 1920. Inge Altenberg journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. But in the wake of WWI, Inge's German heritage turns her neighbors against the match. Under cathedral skies, the determined young immigrant and her stoic farmer fight for their lives, facing their own misgivings and the harshness of an unforgiving land. A lyrical celebration of hard-won independence and a reflection of generations past, Sweet Land reminds us of who we are - and where we came from. "A thoroughly human story of enduring love...one of the finest original works to appear on any Twin Cities stage over the past several seasons." - Talkin' Broadway Book by Perrin Post and Laurie Flanigan Hegge Lyrics by Laurie Flanigan Hegge Music by Dina Maccabee From the film Sweet Land by Ali Selim and the short story "A Gravestone Made of Wheat" by Will Weaver

Reading | Reading Lorraine Hansberry, Broadway Playwright and "a literary genius": Plays, Journals, Letters (virtual)


Lorraine Hansberry was 'a literary genius, political revolutionary and a spiritual radical' (Dr. Cornel West). She was the first African American woman to have a play on Broadway, A Raisin in the Sun, and was the youngest person to ever win the NY Drama Critics Award. She died in 1965 of cancer at the age of 34, leaving a legacy of work that continues to need to be urgently shared. This event features Lang College alumni and current students reading selections of Hansberry's plays, journals, letters and from critical accounts of her remarkable work.

Staged Reading | Keene: Satirical and Timely Play (live-streamed, virtual)


It's love at first sight for Kai, a Japanese musicologist, when she spies Tyler, the only student of color in his PhD cohort, at a Shakespeare conference. Each night, while Tyler dreams he is the subject of his thesis: Ira Aldridge, the first black man to play Othello, Kai dreams of Tyler. As dreams start to merge with reality, Tyler and Kai are brought closer together. Yet Tyler, like Ira before him, can not perceive the inevitable betrayal of his closest ally. By Anchuli Felicia King Directed by Ethan McSweeny Featuring Grantham Coleman, Paul Gross, Carol Halstead, John Harrell, Chris Johnston, Sam Lilja, Amelia Pedlow, Sam Saint Ours, Sarah Suzuki, and Sara Topham

Opera | Met Opera: Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia (virtual)


Audiences went wild for Bartlett Sher’s dynamic production, which found fresh and surprising ways to bring Rossini’s effervescent comedy closer to them than ever before. The stellar cast leapt to the challenge with irresistible energy and bravura vocalism. Juan Diego Flórez is Count Almaviva, who fires off showstopping coloratura as he woos Joyce DiDonato’s spirited Rosina—with assistance from Peter Mattei as the one and only Figaro, Seville’s beloved barber and man-about-town.
