In his later years Mozart was so moved by the continued reverence of Prague audiences that the Viennese composer expressed his gratitude through music. La Clemenza di Tito celebrates the coronation of Emperor Leopold in rich, majestic melodies. Known as Mozart’s “Prague” Symphony, Symphony No. 38 transcends the scope of what a symphony had typically been, epitomizing Mozartian freshness, energy and grace. The master’s unsurpassed skill at creating a dialogue between solo instrument and orchestra is displayed in the extraordinary Clarinet Concerto featuring internationally-acclaimed clarinetist David Shifrin.  Maestro Pak’s very own version of Happy Birthday adds sparkle to the festival.  Tickets vary depending on seating, and range from $26.00 to $64.00.  David Shifrin, Clarinet: One of only two wind players to have been awarded the Avery Fisher Prize since the award’s inception in 1974, Shifrin is in constant demand throughout the world as an orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber music collaborator. He is a three-time Grammy nominee and  has served as a faculty member of the The Juilliard School of Music and as music director of the Chamber Music Society of Yale.

FALMOUTH THEATRE GUILD PRESENTS: “JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR”

November 4, 2011

November 4, 5 & 6 AND 11, 12 & 13

Highfield Hall, 56 Highfield Dr, off Depot Ave, Falmouth

508-495-1878

Website: www.highfieldhall.org

Fri/Sat @ 7:30p.m. & Sun @ 2p.m.

It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.
