Roxy Regional Theatre gives Romeo & Juliet Historical Twist, Civil War-Style, March 8th–16th

 

Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – The tale of Romeo and Juliet is one which truly transcends time and place — and beginning March 8th, the Roxy Regional Theatre will prove it by setting one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays during the American Civil War.

This historical twist to the classic love story could not come at a more fitting time, as we commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War, a time when deeply rooted hatreds often pitted neighbor against neighbor and family against family, compelling lovers to risk everything to be together.

Bizet’s “Carmen” dazzled viewers

 

Anna Caterina Antonacci as Carmen

A little-heralded screening of a great opera, Georges Bizet’s Carmen, played Clarksville Thursday evening, the first of four British productions that will air in the next three weeks. Carmen was, in a word, “stunning.”

The Carmike 10 at Governor’s Square Mall did little advertising of this show, staged at Covent Garden with the London Symphony. Every one in the sparsely filled theater had the same comment: “We didn’t find out about this until (Wednesday).” Or “If I known about this sooner several friends would have come with me.”

For the most part, seeing any classical performance, with the periodic exception of something at APSU, classical music is nonexistent; Clarksville residents usually have to leave town to soothe that particular thirst, and that means a trip to Nashville of Louisville for a symphonic concert, a ballet or an opera. The Met: Live in HD offers a global broadcast series of 11 operas from its New York Stage. That series plays two stadium theaters in Nashville, often with standing room only crowds that include large contingent of Clarksville classical fans. The Met series is highly publicized; I hope that the Carmike 10 (or the city’s  Great Escape 16) would do the same. «Read the rest of this article»

 

The Met’s high-def ‘Romeo & Juliet’ broadcast live at Green Hills, Opryland

 

co-met-rj-dance-w-masks.JPGGounod’s sensual interpretation of Romeo and Juliet launches this season’s The Metropolitan Opera HD Live, a high definition global broadcast live from Lincoln Center in New York City on Saturday at noon CST. Tenor Robert Alagna and Soprano Anna Netrebko (at left) are Shakespeare’s legendary star-crossed lovers in what promises to the Met’s Christmas gift to the world. Placido Domingo conducts.

Alagna is Romeo of the Montagues, enchanted at first sight with the lovely Juliet (Netrebko) of the Capulets, caring not that their families exist in a state of hatred. Youth, beauty and passion rule, and the innocence of their newfound love must scale more than the balcony rail in pursuit of happiness beyond a feud not of their making.

From the tentative steps of a first dance to the sensual nuance of first love, the audience is drawn into a carefully spun web of intrigue and tragedy. The world knows and loves the story; this transcendent adaptation adds a new dimension to a treasured classic. «Read the rest of this article»
