Helen McCrory (The Last of the Haussmans) returns to the National Theatre to take the title role in Euripides’ powerful tragedy, in a new version by Ben Power, directed by Carrie Cracknell.

Medea is a wife and a mother. For the sake of her husband, Jason, she’s left her home and borne two sons in exile. But when he abandons his family for a new life, Medea faces banishment and separation from her children. Cornered, she begs for one day’s grace.

It’s time enough. She exacts an appalling revenge and destroys everything she holds dear.

All Brass Kick-Off Bash
14-15 ModlinArts
All Brass Kick-Off Bash
Bring your blankets or lawn chairs and join the Modlin Center for the Arts as we kick-off the 2014-2015 season with an explosion of high energy brass band performances on the Westhampton Green (in front of Booker Hall of Music). The festivities will begin at noon and include local area food trucks, beer trucks, and an extraordinary amount of high octane brass.

Richmond’s own No BS! Brass fearlessly combines elements of James Brown, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, and Led Zeppelin into their fiercely original sound. Trained in the conservatory and hardened in the garage, No BS! makes instant fans wherever they perform, including the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the Festival of New Trumpet Music, and on National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk Concert.

Slavic Soul Party brings their fiery blend of funk grooves, Balkan brass, Gypsy accordion wizardry, and virtuoso jazz chops to the All Brass! concert. Slavic Soul Party weaves the techno, gospel, funk, dub, jazz, and Latin influences of New York’s neighborhoods seamlessly into a Balkan brass setting that has won devoted fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

Red Baraat returns to the Modlin Center with their hard driving North Indian bhangra rhythms mixed with jazz, go-go, brass funk, and hip-hop. The incredibly danceable music of this pioneering band from Brooklyn draws people from all backgrounds and ethnicities into an exuberant celebration. Red Baraat has performed around the world including their own TED Talk, the White House, and the 2012 Paralympic Games.

Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world and being featured on HBO’s hit series Treme. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.”

Turtle Island Quartet
14-15 ModlinArts
Turtle Island Quartet
“This kind of gonzo alchemy comes our way once in a blue moon, which makes it all the sweeter.” – Sam McDonald, dailypress.com

Singer-songwriter Nellie McKay enchants audiences with her musical wanderlust. Her sweet, light voice enraptures as it dances on a vivacious lyrical journey. Her voice is an instrument in its own right, undulating with the staves of Turtle Island Quartet’s melodies to create smooth, and at times gentle, music. Light and airy, the swishing and sliding of sound through the strings of the quartet blend into one philharmonic, nimble as they move between classical quartet to jazz band. This performance by McKay and Turtle Island is an evening spent running through the natural notes of song and string.

Join the Modlin Center at 6:30pm for a free pre-performance Artistic Viewpoint with a member of the Turtle Island Quartet. Location TBA

Clybourne Park
14-15 ModlinArts
Clybourne Park
**** “… strong, ferociously smart play..” – The New York Times

***** “…. an evening of ebullient provocation..” – The London Guardian

A spin-off of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun, this cutting-edge satire takes a stab at race and landed property in an imaginary Chicago community. The play begins in 1959 as a “negro” family moves into a white neighborhood. In Act Two, circa 2009, we visit the same house as gentrification sets in and the roles are swapped.

Have things really changed?

Internationally acclaimed, award-winning theatre director Chuck Mike follows up his 2011 production of A Raisin in the Sun by staging Bruce Norris’ superlative sequel on the Modlin stage.

Clybourne Park is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award.

Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer
14-15 ModlinArts
Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer
Two of contemporary music’s most commanding and creative instrumentalists will combine their gifts to offer a thrilling evening of duets. Double bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile are both multiple Grammy Award winners and recipients of the MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant, as well as virtuoso improvisers and composers, equally fluent playing jazz, Bach, and Americana, as well as writing concerti and bluegrass tunes. Both played with Yo-Yo Ma and fiddler Stuart Duncan on the 2011 Grammy Award-winning The Goat Rodeo Sessions.

Widely regarded as a musical genius, Chris Thile is best known for his work with the wildly popular Nickel Creek and bluegrass quintet Punch Brothers. Thile has elevated the mandolin from its origins as a relatively simple folk and bluegrass instrument to the sophistication and brilliance of the finest jazz improvisation and classical performance. Edgar Meyer has been hailed by the New Yorker as “the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument” and his collaborators include Joshua Bell, Jerry Douglas, Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain, Sam Bush, James Taylor, Alison Krauss, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

New Orleans Legends
"When I meet someone like Allen Toussaint – that for me is like meeting the equivalent of the Dalai Lama, because he influenced the way I played the piano. He’s a historical part of rock-and-roll.” – Elton John

“Return to the roots of jazz, America's great indigenous art form, and don't miss an opportunity for a performance by the ‘best jazz band in the land.’” – San Francisco Examiner

From the heart of the French Quarter to the world’s stage, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band has spread the joyful, timeless spirit of true New Orleans jazz since 1961. This American musical treasure recently released That’s It!, the PHJB’s first album of original material.

Allen Toussaint is part of New Orleans music royalty – a renowned songwriter, producer, arranger, and performer celebrated for his distinctive deft and funky feel on the piano that earned him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With a poet’s ear for lyrics and songwriting steeped in New Orleans street music, Toussaint’s hit-making R&B songs have been covered by countless artists in an array of style. In 2012, he was recognized by President Obama as a recipient of the National Medal of Arts and Humanities.

Together, these musical titans of New Orleans bring the life and heart of the Big Easy to Richmond for an evening of legendary music-making.

NT Live: Frankenstein
Encore Broadcasts
7PM: Benededict Cumberbatch as Frankenstein and Johny Lee Miller as the Creature

10PM: Johnny Lee Miller as Frankenstein and Benedict Cumberbatch as the Creature

National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.

The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

Jonathan Biss & Miriam Fried
14-15 ModlinArts
Jonathan Biss & Miriam Fried
“So how do you like your virtuosos: Veteran or wunderkind?...This was not a competition, but a glorious collaboration between two like-minded players who share not only blood but also a passion for the intricate interplay that chamber music affords...The recital proved a satisfying combination of youthful vigor and the kind of musical wisdom that only comes with experience.” – St. Paul Pioneer Press

American pianist Jonathan Biss is widely regarded for his artistry, musical intelligence and deeply felt interpretations, winning international recognition for his orchestral, recital, and chamber music performances and for his award-winning recordings. Miriam Fried has been recognized for many years as one of the world’s preeminent violinists. A consummate musician – equally accomplished as recitalist, concerto soloist or chamber musician – she has been heralded for her “fiery intensity and emotional depth” (Musical America) as well as for her technical mastery.

Biss represents the third generation in a family of professional musicians that includes his grandmother Raya Garbousova, one of the first well-known female cellists (for whom Samuel Barber composed his Cello Concerto), as well as his father, violist/violinist Paul Biss, and his mother, Ms. Fried.

In recent years Mr. Biss and Ms. Fried have each devoted a portion of their schedules to performing together. Mr. Biss has been a member of Chamber Music Society Two at Lincoln Center, is a frequent participant at the Marlboro Music Festival, and often collaborates with such chamber ensembles as the Borromeo Quartet and Mendelssohn Quartet, of which Ms. Fried is a member.

The evening’s program will include Brahms’ Sonata in A Major, Op. 100, Bartók’s Sonata No. 2, and Beethoven’s Sonata in G Major, Op. 96.

The Gibson Brothers
14-15 ModlinArts
The Gibson Brothers
“When I hear someone like The Gibson Brothers, I know it’s them from the first note. They have that little thing in their voices that no one else has.” – Del McCoury

Traditional bluegrass phenoms, the Gibson Brothers are two-time winners of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Entertainers of the Year Award, along with countless other honors and awards. Their powerhouse harmonies blended with virtuosic picking, plus the caliber of their live performances is a clear reflection of their dedicated and developed musicianship. Hailed by Steve Leftridge of PopMatters as “the most impeccably fine-sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene,” this brother-duo of Eric and Leigh Gibson is a rare talent that cannot be missed.

Singer-songwriter Liz Longley is best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, but is quickly gaining recognition for her skills as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. A recent graduate of the Berklee College of Music, in the last two years Liz has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country. New England named her the 2011 Female Performer of the Year, the Washington Post declared that Liz is "destined for a larger audience" and Dig Boston called her "a rising acoustic sensation." Even John Mayer is a fan, calling her music "gorgeous, simply gorgeous."

The Pumpkin Pie Show
“With the trembling voice of Vincent Price and the sinister presence of Boris Karloff, Clay McLeod Chapman… uses the macabre to explore the humanity of his characters and reveal an almost spiritual side to the horrific. ” — The New York Times

Celebrating its second decade of performances, the Pumpkin Pie Show is a literary fist in the face. Part storytelling session, part boxing match, part shamanistic ritual, the Pumpkin Pie Show has established itself as an all-points artistic hodgepodge of theatre and literature. The goal is to strip away the extraneous periphery of sets and costumes to put laser focus on the text and the performance itself, conjuring up an atmosphere of “creating something out of nothing,” as well as focusing on the ethereal connective tissue between the one telling the story and the audience.

Presented in partnership with Carol Piersol and the 5th Wall Theatre.

This performance will take place at the Theatre Gym at the Virginia Rep Center (114 W. Broad Street)

The Queen decides to sacrifice herself, but later regrets her action when she is disfigured and Shyrin falls in love with the Queen’s own lover, the painter Ferkhad.

This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.

Featuring dance movements, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.

The Pharaoh's Daughter
Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life.

The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.

With its exotic setting, impressive parades, spectacular variations and crowd scenes, this grand 19th-century Orientalist fantasy is one of the most remarkable productions in the Bolshoi’s repertoire. The main roles are here danced by Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova, Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov.

La Bayadère (the word refers to an Indian temple dancer) is a key work in the classical repertoire and this is a magnificent production. The story of impossible love between Nikiya and Solor is set against the backdrop of a lush, mysterious India. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite; the scene known as The Kingdom of the Shades is one of the most celebrated in the history of ballet. Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova and Maria Alexandrova bring the characters of this romantic ballet to life.

“They make you get up and dance, tap into the good-natured, communal spirit characteristic of salsa at its timeless best.” — Los Angeles Times

The two-time Grammy-winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra is one of the most formidable and authentic Latin jazz bands today. The 13 world-class instrumentalists and vocalists of SHO brings music bursting with punching horn lines and spirited vocals straight from the barrio. Their raw, vintage sound is marked by fiery salsa mixed with moments of melodic balladry and represents the authenticity and tradition of Spanish Harlem.

Two-time winner of the National Magazine Award and New Yorker writer, Elizabeth Kolbert discusses her major book, The Sixth Extinction, about the future of the world, blending intellectual and natural history and field reporting into a powerful account of the mass extinction unfolding before our eyes. Over the last half billion years, there have been five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly and dramatically contracted. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. In The Sixth Extinction, Kolbert explains how humans are causing the Earth’s sixth great extinction.

Swan Lake
14-15 ModlinArts
Swan Lake
At the palace, the royal family and their guests are gathered for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight; young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony.

With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.

“There’s a marvellous and mysterious kind of alchemy at work in author and actor Michael Milligan’s mesmerising, harrowing indictment of US healthcare.” – Edinburgh Fringe Scotsman

A Blue collar 'Joe' grapples with his red state ideals when he realizes the measures he must take to care for his beloved wife. A surprisingly tender love story, Mercy Killers is an unblinking look at health care in America.

He has appeared on Broadway in productions such as August: Osage County, La Bête, and Jerusalem. In five intimate performances with only 50 audience members each, Milligan will move you as he struggles with the uniquely American experience of losing your health in the land of plenty.

“One of the most innovative troupes on the experimental dance scene.” – The New York Times

Under the leadership of director and choreographer Mourad Merzouki, Company Käfig / CCN Creteil et Val-De-Marne has become an international phenomenon, touring the world with sold-out performances and rave reviews. Merzouki, himself a major figure on the hip-hop scene for more than two decades, created Correria and Agwa after an inspiring encounter with eleven dancers from the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. These young dancers, whose individual stories, passion for dance, and fervent determination resonated with Merzouki, blend the powerful components of samba, hip-hop, and capoeira to create an athletic dance style that is fluid, beautiful, and surprising. Correria plunges us into a frantic, hectic race just like the one that governs our daily lives. Agwa is all about water — the most vital component of the human body, a precious natural resource to be preserved, and a symbol of renewal.

Parallel Exit
“Featuring enough slamming doors, pratfalls, songs, magic tricks, tap-dancing and slapstick to fuel a dozen shows.” –- The New York Post

Harkening back to the days of vaudeville and the physical theatrics of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Parallel Exit creates an hour of hilarity as they tap dance, pratfall, and slapstick their way across the stage and back again. With more entertainment in a single show than a three-ring circus, it’s no wonder that EXIT STAGE LEFT is Parallel Exit’s most popular touring show. Your whole family will be rolling in the aisles as this five-person ensemble takes old-fashioned family fun into the twenty-first century.

eighth blackbird, SLEEPING
It's a musical dream team: three-time Grammy-winning instrumental sextet eighth blackbird, and New York-based all-star composer sextet Sleeping Giant. The challenge: create six pieces that together comprise an evening-length work, Hand Eye. Each sextet features a member of eighth blackbird, with one "giant" composing and one "bird" highlighted, creating an evening fizzing with the alchemy of twelve unique personalities. Rule for composers: mold a dramatic arc through the evening. Rule for the ensemble: Perform this sextet of bird-songs entirely from memory. You will hear the thrilling result at eighth blackbird's spring concert!

PROGRAM: Ted Hearne, Andrew Norman, Chris Cerrone, Timo Andres, Robert Honstein and Jacob Cooper: Hand Eye (2014)

Premiered just months ago at New York Live Arts, the Modlin Center brings new works by celebrated choreographer and 2013 Macarthur Fellow Kyle Abraham and his company ABRAHAM.IN.MOTION to Richmond audiences. Vogue describes Abraham’s choreography as having an “avant-garde aesthetic, an original and politically minded downtown sensibility that doesn’t distinguish between genres but freely draws on a vocabulary that is as much Merce and Martha as it is Eadweard Muybridge and Michael Jackson.”

Performed over two nights, The Watershed and When the Wolves Came In pay homage to the 150-year anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 20-year anniversary of the abolishment of apartheid in South Africa. The powerful themes inherent in these historical milestones—in tandem with Abraham’s choreography and music by Max Roach, Robert Glasper, and Otis Redding—connect ideas postured in a cross-cultural exploration of freedom and its progression from the 1960s to present day.

This engagement of KYLE ABRAHAM/ABRAHAM.IN.MOTION is funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and is also sponsored in part by the E.

Romeo and Juliet
14-15 ModlinArts
Romeo and Juliet
In Verona, the rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues brings bloodshed to the city. When the Capulets organise a masked ball in honour of their daughter Juliet, Romeo Montague and his friend Mercutio attend incognito because of the hatred that tears the two houses apart. Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love, and are distraught when they realise they belong to rival families.

William Shakespeare’s timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. With its famous melodies, rhythmic variety and universal theme, this story of impossible love remains an all-time favourite, and is one of the world’s most popular ballets.

Stellar performances by Alexander Volchkov and Anna Nikulina illuminate this masterpiece, making the immortal tale of the lovers of Verona an unforgettable experience.

Matt Wilson Quartet
“There are few more emphatically dazzling drummers today, but almost nobody in Wilson’s peer group with a broader sense of jazz history, or a more natural sense of time, or more goodwill among his fellow players.”—Nate Chinen, JazzTimes

One of the most creative and sought-after drummers in jazz today, Matt Wilson is universally recognized for his musical and melodic drumming style as well as being a gifted composer, bandleader, producer, and teaching artist. Matt’s positive energy, sense of humor and ability to explore a broad range of musical settings are what make his music so compelling.

The Matt Wilson Quartet (with bassist Chris Lightcap, Jeff Lederer on reeds, and cornetist Kirk Knuffke) joined forces with freewheeling pianist John Medeski, of Medeski, Martin, and Wood fame to create their 2014 release Gathering Call. The result is music that “is swinging, full of surprises, a bit giddy, and occasionally verging on a good kind of chaos (Relix Magazine). With music drawn from sources as wide-ranging as Ellington and Beyoncé, combined with an incredible chemistry and adventurous vibe between such talented and creative musicians, this is one night of music-making that fans of any genre won’t want to miss.
