By George Brant
Directed by Neil Pepe

August-October

A huge influence on Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Jimi Hendrix, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a legend in her time, bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music. Tharpe was the queen of ‘race records’ in the 30’s and 40’s, who performed mornings at churches and evenings at the Cotton Club, who was a big enough star to fill a baseball stadium for her third wedding, but ended up buried in an unmarked grave in Philadelphia. Marie and Rosetta chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée, Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them as one of the great duet teams in musical history.

An Egyptian Police Band arrives in Israel to play a concert. After a mix-up at the border, they are sent to a remote village in the middle of the desert. With no bus until morning and no hotel in sight, these unlikely travelers are taken in by the locals. Under the spell of the desert sky, their lives become intertwined in the most unexpected ways. A new musical based on the critically acclaimed screenplay which received 36 major international awards.

The Band’s Visit is developed and produced with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Laurents/Hatcher Foundation, and the National Alliance for Musical Theatre’s National Fund for New Musicals.

TELL HECTOR I MISS HIM
By Paola Lázaro
Atlantic Stage 2
January-February

You're in Puerto Rico. Old San Juan. You're a tourist, you walk down the stairs of this beautiful old fort built by the Spaniards. When you reach the bottom, you realize you're in the hole, a slum. Welcome to La Perla, the barrio and the underbelly that lies under the tourism and behind the fort walls. You spend some days there, you don't want to leave. Oh no, you're addicted to the beauty, the women and the drugs. A raw and compelling play about searching for first love, found family, and hope.

Paola Lázaro is Atlantic’s 2016-2017 Tow playwright-in-residence, supported generously by The Tow Foundation.

May-June

Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career.  So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is there something in the walls…? Her husband thinks she needs time; her psychiatrist suggests positive thinking. But then the visions start. A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival.

2016-2017 ATLANTIC FOR KIDS SEASON

NEW YORK PREMIERE MUSICAL
1001 NIGHTS: A LOVE STORY ABOUT LOVING STORIES

Directed by Adam Koplan
Fall 2016

This newly reimagined production of 1001 Nights features early songs by Oscar, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award winner Robert Lopez (Avenue QThe Book of Mormon, and Disney’s Frozen). In this celebration of brainy imagination over brawn, a princess uses her wits to save a kingdom from an evil decree as she spins tale after tale for a narrow-minded king. This playful adaptation of the "Arabian Nights" fairy tales is recommended for ages six and up, but welcomes children of all ages!

News from Michelle Tabnick Communications

to perform at the
Verbier Festival
July 23 & 25, 2016

MasterVoices at the 2016 Verbier Festival:

July 23, 2016 - Gábor Takács-Nagy conducts the Verbier Festival Orchestra and MasterVoices in an evening dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The wunderkind Wolfgang demonstrated his precocious talent in his First Symphony, composed when he was only eight. Twenty-four years later he delivered his final symphony, and possibly his most famous - Symphony N°41, the "Jupiter", a fitting symphonic swansong.  MasterVoices will join the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra and its Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy for a performance of Mozart's Great Mass in C minor, K. 427, featuring Soprano Emöke Baráth, Mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg, Tenor Bernard Richter, and Baritone Stefan Genz.

July 25, 2016 - Charles Dutoit conducts MasterVoices in a full-length performance of the French opera, Bizet's Carmen. The score, with its drama and power, features some of the most beautiful pages ever written for mezzo-soprano, while the opéra comique genre (which alternates between spoken and sung dialogues) calls for exceptional acting skill.  Named the "Carmen of her generation" by the San Francisco Sentinel, American mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich has triumphed in the role around the world and will star in the leading role once again at the Verbier Festival.  The July 25 performance will also feature Dmytro Popov, Laurent Naouri, Sylvia Schwartz, Julie Pasturaud, Florie Valiquette, François Piolino, Francis Dudziak, Jean-Luc Ballestra, David Shipley, and the children's chorus from Ecole de Chant Du Haut-Valais (Music Director, Hansruedi Kämpfen).
For more information or to buy tickets, visit https://www.verbierfestival.com/en/artiste/choeur-master-voices/.

MasterVoices' performances on July 23 and 25 will be available for livestream and on-demand viewing on medici.tv: http://www.medici.tv/#!/verbier-festival-on-medicitv.
