Benjamin Britten: The Cello Suites
Cellist Aron Zelkowicz performs and discusses Britten's three solo Cello Suites, which were written for Mstislav Rostropovich.

Civil War Era Drawings from the Becker Collection
To honor the sesquicentennial of the Battle of Gettysburg, this exhibition includes more than 100 drawings by artists working for Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper during the Civil War years and immediately following. These early “embedded” journalists recorded their first-hand impressions of war, daily life during wartime, and other aspects of 19th-century American culture. The Becker collection is a recently discovered treasure trove of drawings by Joseph Becker and his colleagues. A rich and fascinating glimpse at a decade, these drawings offer a surprisingly intimate look at American life during this volatile decade of war, change, and growth.

Sung in English, the production is "gorgeously whimsical" (Toronto Globe and Mail).

A father's love of music and a daughter's passion for basketball are at odds in this new play about competition, commitment, and craft.
