She She Pop & Their Fathers: Testament

World Stage Production

She She Pop (Germany)
Performed in German with English surtitles

Mirroring the story of King Lear and his daughters, She She Pop members take to the stage with their own aging fathers to enumerate their inheritances and negotiate how power, money, memory and love are passed along across the generations. With the drive of a game show, this heart wrenching and humourous work strives to find the intersections of responsibility and respect between parents and children. She She Pop, based in Berlin and Hamburg, is one of Germany’s most important performance collectives.

When: April 17-20, 2013

Location: Fleck Dance Theatre, Harbourfront Centre

Mozart’s The Magic Flute

DATES: April 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 13, 2013

TIMES: 7:30 P.M. (*with the exception of Sunday, April 7 matinee at 3 P.M.)

Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an enchanting romp through a fairly-tale land in which dragons and spirits roam
and perseverance is rewarded by true love. A magical tale that delights audiences of all ages, The Magic
Flute is a wonderful adventure for the whole family.

One of the most-performed operas worldwide, The Magic Flute is perhaps Mozart’s greatest popular
success. It tells the tale of a prince, Tamino, who is sent by The Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter
Pamina from her nemesis Sarastro. Accompanied by the endearingly incorrigible Papageno and with the aid
of a magic flute, the besotted Tamino ventures into the temple and quickly finds that all is not as it seems. TICKET PRICES: $35 – $155.

Our Betters

If this play were a personal ad, it would read: rich American women in search of nobility seeking poor British men with titles – a forerunner of Downton Abbey? When American Bessie Saunders comes to London, she is thrust into the world of women of wealth and men of status. The games, the lies, the affairs – what she hears and witnesses, particularly in the garden house of her older sister Pearl, is a mercilessly funny look at Europe’s smart set. Sexy, stylish, provocative and very funny – writer and critic Graham Greene called it “the best social comedy of this century.”
