Dead Man Walking

Next date: Jul 27, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

In this South Florida premiere based on the impactful book and film of the same name, acclaimed composer Jake Heggie takes on a true story that helped frame the modern debate on the death penalty in America. When a Catholic nun in New Orleans agrees to correspond with a death-row inmate convicted of murder, her perspectives on life, death, forgiveness, and capital punishment are forever altered. With a libretto by the Tony Award-winning playwright Terrance McNally (Masterclass, Ragtime), Dead Man Walking brings one of the most powerful contemporary American operas and one of opera’s most important contemporary composers to South Florida.

Jazz at MOCA - Anibal Berraute

Friday, Jul 28, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

Anibal Berraute, Argentinean piano player, composer, arranger and producer, fuses tango with elements of other musical forms: the Uruguayan candombe with its African roots and argentinean rhythms, traditional country-folklore sounds, and American jazz among others, to come out with a new vibrant harmonic approach to a genre that in little over a century, transcended its humble beginnings, to reach the whole world and its concert halls to be finally declared “cultural patrimony of humanity” by the United Nations.

Anibal Berraute brings to this project the experience of having been a performing member of some of the best orchestral units of the genre, not to mention his exceptional talent as a composer, arranger, conductor and skills as a producer for some of the leading talents in the music industry.

Anibal Berraute chose for his first Tango Fusion’s recording repertoire, a lesser-known works by Astor Piazzola (the iconic figure responsible for a musical revolution called “New Tango”). “Concierto de Nacar,” is a concert for bandoneon and symphony orchestra done in a special arrangement for his quintet.

Another interesting cut in the recording is a tango version of the American jazz standard “Green Dolphin Street,” in which the members of the group take turns improvising on the main theme, in the spirit of a jazz combo.

Ileana “iLe” Cabra, a/k/a PG-13, the fierce young songstress of Puerto Rico’s world-renown alternative/hip-hop/rock band Calle 13, joined the band when she was only 16. Now a 2017 Grammy award winner, ILE makes her solo Florida debut November 2, after levitating across stages with her brother René (Residente) in Calle 13 for more than a decade.

Her sound is all her own: iLe’s eclectic tastes and ability to combine an older, more romantic point of view with the darkness of the new millennium. She draws as much from the work of her brothers and the extended Calle 13 family, as from an ancestry farther back, classic son and boleros, boogaloo and mambo.

Prepare to fall in love with this new star.

Celtic Thunder 2017 Symphony Tour

Tuesday, Nov 14, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

A show rather than a group, Celtic Thunder was conceived by Sharon Browne and written and arranged by Phil Coulter and designed as a contemporary exploration of Celtic music, which means it falls to the pop-dance side of the spectrum more than it does to the traditional side.Celtic Thunder, the singing group from Ireland, perform both solo and ensemble numbers. They debuted in August 2007 at The Helix in Dublin. Accompanied by the Celtic Concert Orchestra under the direction of David Munro, the musical director of the group, Celtic Thunder have become a household name all around the world, with recent ventures into Australia & South Africa. Celtic Thunder live shows are known for dramatic effects via lighting and choreography as well as realistic Irish stage sets with authentic Irish instruments. The performances have dramatic solos, compelling ensembles, and comedic acts.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Wednesday, Jan 17, 2018 various times - English

Acclaimed violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman will lead one of the UK’s most prestigious orchestras in this evening of Beethoven and Mozart.

In 2016, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) celebrated 70 years at the forefront of music-making in the UK. Its home base since 2004 at London’s Cadogan Hall serves as a springboard for fourteen residencies across the country, often in areas where access to live orchestral music is very limited. With a wider reach than any other UK large ensemble, the RPO has truly become Britain’s national orchestra.

Pinchas Zukerman, the inspirational Principal Guest Conductor of RPO, has remained a phenomenon in the world of music for over four decades. His musical genius, prodigious technique and unwavering artistic standards are a marvel to audiences and critics. Devoted to the next generation of musicians, he has inspired younger artists with his magnetism and passion. His enthusiasm for teaching has resulted in innovative programs in London, New York, China, Israel and Ottawa. The name Pinchas Zukerman is equally respected as violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue and chamber musician.

"Fate knocking at the door." Beethoven's Fifth symphony opens with perhaps the four most famous notes in all of music. Revolutionary in its time, it is now perhaps the most well-known piece of music in history. Plus, Beethoven's almost uncharacteristically joyful Eighth Symphony is an often-overlooked masterpiece containing just as much brilliance than his more well-known symphonies.

Music by Jed Feuer and book and lyrics by Boyd Graham.

In this whirlwind musical, two comedy writers try to raise enough “dough” for the most historically expansive show ever conceived, about the ENTIRE history of the universe. In a record 90 minutes, both actors are put to the test as they try to convince their potential theatrical backers (the audience) that this insane frivolity is somehow worthy of the authors’ unrealistic hopes and aspirations. The Big Bang has become the most asked about show in our 30-year history, and yes, we’re bringing it back with a BANG just for you!
