For the first time, the theater group will be on the West Coast, featuring a world-class and diverse repertoire, set on a technically riveting stage. The program will include classic and modern dance as well as original compositions by renowned choreographers. The Astana Ballet Theater has toured all over the world with performances in Paris, Beijing, Vienna, Budapest, Tokyo, Brussels and last year's performance at the Lincoln Center in New York City. The evening's performance will feature The Heritage of the Great Steppe, a Kazakh folk dance which is full of expressive music and remarkable artistic imagery. Also included will be three neoclassical one-act ballets, which include two pieces by Brazilian choreographer Ricardo Amarante: Love Fear Loss, a ballet set to songs by Edith Piaf that focuses on Piaf's remarkable life story; and A Fuego Lento, a ballet that uses the rhythms of a Samba and Tango to tell a passionate story about the flush of first love. The final one-act, Love's Lost Idols, is by the renowned New York-based choreographer Nicolo Fonte, who is known for his daring and original approach to dance.

11/07/2019 - Linda Blair Lectures on Jan Van Eyck
Athenaeum Music & Arts Library welcomes back art historian Linda Blair with a new lecture series, Dreams and Enchantment: Jan van Eyck.

The three-part Thursday evening lecture series is designed to transport us to an otherworldly realm of noble knights and dreaming ladies, caparisoned steeds, and fairy-tale castle--all our reveries of the Arthurian knightly dream--in short, to 15th century Burgundy and the last glow of late medieval art.

November 7: Van Eyck as Influencer
How could Jan van Eyck possibly relate to Leonardo? The insights and inventions that made his genius possible were born not in Renaissance Italy, but far away, beyond the Alps in Northern Europe, in small, patrician Bruges, center of the dukes of Burgundy and their court painter, Jan van Eyck. We will plumb Van Eyck's discoveries to look afresh at Leonardo's art.

November 14: Burgundy, Chivalrous Ideals, and Van Eyck's Paintings
Burgundy, a tiny sliver of land, politically powerless but made persuasive as one of the most romantic, poetic, and refined of all the European courts, was so elegant it was slavishly emulated across Europe. It elevated the ideals of knightly cultur--art, architecture, costuming, pageantry, tournaments, courtly ritual--captured in Van Eyck's luminous paintings.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.

11/17/2019 - Stage: Cambodian Rock Band
This play/rock concert thrusts us into the life of a young woman trying to piece together her family history thirty years after her father fled Cambodia. Featuring a cast that performs a mix of contemporary Dengue Fever hits and classic Cambodian oldies, playwright Lauren Yee brings to life the Cambodian rock scene of the '60s and '70s, a movement cut short by the Khmer Rouge's brutal attempt to erase the music (and musicians) once and for all.
