New Orleans Opera presents Bizet's The Pearl Fishers

January 28 & 30, 8 pm, 2:30 pm
Mahalia Jackson Theatre, 529-3000

Set in exotic Celon (now Sri Lanka), this opera by the composer of Carmen boasts one of the most famous and beautiful duets in the repertoire. Two men renew their vows of friendship, even though both have fallen in love with the same woman. In the end, one man will make the ultimate sacrifice for the other.
Captain Louie is the story of a young boy on Halloween night who escapes into his own imagination as a means of coping with the loneliness he feels when he moves to a new neighborhood. Of its initial production, The New York Times said Captain Louie captures "the sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story."
The story is full of tricks and treats, and the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin). Most of all, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.
CAPTAIN LOUIE-Only 3 shows!

THIS Friday, January 28, 2011
9:00pm at The Allways Lounge
(2240 St. Claude -The Marigny)

Tony O'Neill will read the most vile scenes from his 2010 novel, SICK  
CITY- plus from a work-in-progess. He will be joined by eclectic New  
Orleans performers - Ratty Scurvics, Ooops the Clown, Trixie Minx,  
Bella Blue from Fleur de Tease and J.Lloyd Miller from The Bingo Show.  
The night will be hosted by poety-slam MC, Nick Fox. Copies of Tony's  
novels will be on sale from Lee Ware, in the guise of a cigarette girl  
from 1940's clubs, holding a book ladened tray and asking "Sick City?  
Down and Out? Sick City?"

There will be a $7.00 cover charge, 100% of which goes to the  
performers (less Tony, who merely wishes to share the darker shades of  
his muse). If that $7.00 is the make or break in attending the show, I  
do know The Guy who handles The List (that being me) and can, if  
necessary, get you on the comp list ... if you're comfortable taking  
money from a poor clown.

Tony will also have his "official" and less dirty reading as a part of  
The 1718 Reading Series at the Columns Hotel on St. Charles - Tuesday,  
February 1st at 7:00pm

His "official" bookstore signing will be at Octavia Books (Octavia &  
Laurel) - Saturday, Jan 29th at 6:00pm. And two drop-in signings,  
Saturday at 1:00pm The Maple Street Bookshop and Sunday 2:30pm at The  
Faulkner House Bookstore.

Hirschfeld, a self-described "characterist," was the foremost chronicler of Williams's productions on and off Broadway for six decades.. With his signature linear calligraphic style, Hirschfeld's drawings compose a fascinating archive of the playwright's career while capturing the personalities of the actors who portrayed his characters on stage and screen. The exhibition also includes correspondence, Playbills, and family photographs documenting Williams's talent for drawing from life to create some of the most compelling characters in American theater history.

Purchase Tickets
NOBA is thrilled to reunite two remarkable creative forces, Trey McIntyre Project and Preservation Hall Jazz Band, in an extraordinary world premiere event. TMP is a prolific American force on the international dance scene. PHJB, currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary, is the legendary champion of New Orleans jazz. Together, and for one night only, ten phenomenal dancers will unite with seven illustrious musicians in a world premiere experience that will include an exclusive encore main stage presentation of Ma Maison.

Creative Collabortion
When Trey McIntyre launched his new company rooted in classical ballet and blasted onto the international dance scene in 2008, NOBA invited this trailblazing choreographer, known for his hip and contemporary dances, to create a new work set to New Orleans jazz music. The result was Ma Maison, the critically-acclaimed collaboration with PHJB that has toured the world to rave reviews, including a recent special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl that was hailed as "shockingly powerful" and "one of the most stunning performances all year" by The LAist.

WHY: On Thursday, February 10, The Historic New Orleans Collection and
the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra will present "Identity, History,
Legacy: La Société Philharmonique," the fifth installment of "Musical
Louisiana: America's Cultural Heritage." The popular concert series and
educational program examines an aspect of the state's
contributions to classical music each year. This year's program is
presented in conjunction with The Collection's exhibition, In Search of
Julien Hudson: Free Artist of Color in Pre-Civil War New Orleans, and the
16th annual Williams Research Center Symposium, "Identity, History,
Legacy:  Free People of Color in Louisiana."
The 2011 concert will feature music that was performed by La Société
Philharmonique, a mid-19th century orchestra composed of free men of
color in New Orleans. Under the direction of conductor Thomas Wilkins,
musical highlights include Rossini's Overture to Semiramide, Alard's La
Traviata (Fantasy for Violin and Piano, op. 38), and Verdi's "Caro nome"
from Rigoletto. Following a typical program of this orchestra and its
contemporaries, a dramatic reading will also be presented-Victor Séjour's
"La Retour de Napoléon (The Return of Napoleon)."
Along with the exhibition, the symposium and concert will explore the impact of this important and long understudied population.
This project has been made possible by the National Endowment for the
Arts as part of American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius.
Additional support comes from the Louisiana Endowment for the
Humanities and the Hotel Monteleone
