NY MET Live Opera: Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci  
  Arlington Theatre, 1317 State Street, Santa Barbara CA

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.

My Fair Lady  
  Marion Theatre, Allan Hancock College Campus, Santa Maria CA

Professor Henry Higgins makes a wager that he can raise a lowly Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, to the status of a high-society debutante in Lerner and Loewe's hit musical, My Fair Lady. Based on Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady plays as powerfully for modern-day audiences as it did in 1912. Eliza's transformation illuminates society's prejudices, the gender divide, and personal identity. With classic musical numbers such as Wouldn't It Be Loverly?, The Rain In Spain, and I Could Have Danced All Night. Lerner and Loewe's creation is as much a classic play as a classic musical.

Woyzeck  
  The New Vic Theatre, 33 West Victoria Street, Santa Barbara CA

A rarely performed musical adaptation by Tom Waits of one of the most influential plays ever written, Georg Büchner’s classic Woyzeck. When a soldier returns home from the war, desperate poverty leads him to take odd jobs that gradually tear him apart. As he starts to lose his mind, his love for Marie becomes increasingly obsessive. With his poetic combination of blues, jazz, and vaudeville, Tom Waits, along with his wife and collaborator Kathleen Brennan, has created a musical both carnivalesque and tender. Directed by Jonathan Fox.    ($20 - $75)
Presented by ... Ensemble Theatre Company (ETC)

Hotel Modern - The Great War  
  UCSB Campbell Hall, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara CA

Commemorating the WWI Centenary ... 1914 to 1918. Many millions of soldiers wrote letters to their loved ones from the trenches. Millions died in the fire and the mud. Millions came home with stories that could not be told, or could not be heard. Just like after any war. Dutch theater ensemble Hotel Modern and composer Arthur Sauer attempt to make tangible these soldiers’ experiences in their “deeply original and enthralling piece” (Sunday Herald, U.K.), The Great War. The Western Front is reconstructed on a miniature film set before your eyes. As the live action on stage is projected onto a screen, we hear compelling stories from the frontlines.   ($15 - $38)
Presented by ... UCSB Arts & Lectures
