Gesa Power House Theatre opera Live Cinema: "Madama Butterfly"
Gesa Power House Theatre
$15 ($10 Students)
Gesa Power House Theatre will screen the current Royal Opera production of "Madama Butterfly" on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:00 p.m. Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is one of the most popular of all operas, with ravishing music and a heartbreaking story of a loving geisha deserted by a callous American husband. Much-loved soprano Ermonela Jaho sings the title role for the first time at Covent Garden, in Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier's stunningly beautiful production. The exotic imagery of the Nagasaki setting is drawn from 19th-century Western artists' romanticized views of Japan. Puccini's music brings alive the birdsong of the morning, the ritual of a wedding and the seduction by naval officer B.F. Pinkerton (sung by exciting young tenor Marcelo Puente) of his young, innocent bride. Well known moments include the impassioned aria ‘Un bel dì’ (One fine day) as the abandoned Cio-Cio-San clings vainly to her dreams. Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano, acclaimed for his interpretations of Italian opera, conducts this intense and gripping journey from light and excitement to darkness and self-sacrifice. This screening runs about 2 hours 45 minutes including one intermission, plus a 15-minute introduction. Beer, wine, and popcorn will be available for purchase. General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Note: This opera is sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Gesa Power House Theatre Jazz, Gypsy, Acoustic Rhythm Future Quartet
Gesa Power House Theatre
Gesa Power House Theatre presents acoustic jazz ensemble Rhythm Future Quartet on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. Rhythm Future Quartet has a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. The group performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. Reserved seating tickets ($29-$24) are available at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
