Award winning Philadelphia playwright Romulus Linney’s adaptation of Ibsen’s masterpiece Peer Gynt. Ibsen’s fantastical play is reimagined with an Appalachian twist – a fun, boisterous play with banjos and talking hogs. Part folklore, part fairytale, part surrealist dream, and unlike any other play you’ve ever seen.

Tickets range from $10-$40

$5 off with the promo code: Christ Church.

Show runs 120 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.

ConcertOpera Philadelphia presents Umberto Giordano’s Andrea Chénier

Saturday, April 5th @ 8pm

3FlagsChenier
Portrayed on Broadway and in film, Les Miserables relates the horrific struggles of living during the 1830 French Revolution. Likewise, Giordano’s opera relates the true story of André Marie Chénier, a French poet and victim of the perilous years of the first French Revolution. Known for his sensual, emotive poetry, he was guillotined for alleged “crimes against the state”, just three days before the end of the Reign of Terror. Dramatic highlights include Maddalena’s heartbreaking aria “La mamma morta” as heard in the popular film “Philadelphia” starring Tom Hanks, and Chénier’s, “Improvviso”, his passionate vision of France.

Tickets range from $18 to $30. Use Code “NHCCM14” for $5 off

Show runs 2.5 hours. For ticket purchases visit www.concertoperaphl.org

In Timelines, Tangle’s aerial dance theater presents a highly kinetic meditation on female bodies in time. A dancer swings on the pendulum of a giant clock as it ticks down moments. An acrobat echoes life evolving on earth millennia ago, rising from the ocean and into the air via body contortion and aerial rope. Two vaudevillians can’t quite resolve their comic timing on the trapeze. And a daydreaming secretary in a 1950s office escapes to a radical future in which people connect in profoundly different ways. Past, present, and future collide in a drama of swinging trapezes and suspended fabric.

Tickets are $20, $5 discount for CC and NH members, as well as students, artists, and seniors, use code “CCNH15.”

Show runs 90 minutes.
