Romeo & Juliet

TSO favourite Stéphane Denève anchors his latest programme with his personal selection of the finest music from Prokofiev’s masterful Shakespearean ballet. Dynamic Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti, praised by the Times of London for giving her playing “a degree of heat, subtlety and quicksilver colours only achieved by the world’s best,” illuminates every facet of Shostakovich’s powerful Concerto No. 1. The concert opens with the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra performing side-by-side with the Orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s stirring Marche Slave.
7:15pm Pre-concert Chat in the Lobby on Oct. 22.

Sinéad O’Connor

Never the shy and retiring type, Sinéad O’Connor has entitled her upcoming 10th album (out August 12) I’m Not Bossy, I’m the Boss. In the almost 25 years since the release of her international hit “Nothing Compares 2U,” the Irish singer has always remained true to herself and her music. Last summer’s triumphant “Gospel Sessions” at New York’s Lincoln Center proved once again that O’Connor’s colossal stage presence is without equal.

The Philadelphia Story

May 15 – October 25.

Tracy Lord is young, beautiful, wealthy, and about to get married. The Philadelphia socialite has divorced her dashing but unreliable husband and fallen in love with a self-made (but perhaps a bit dull) business tycoon. When a cynical tabloid newshound arrives to cover the ceremony, Tracy has a hard time keeping her nuptials – and her heart – on the right track. A classic romantic comedy, the play was a huge turnaround success for Katharine Hepburn’s in the late 1930s. Barry wrote it especially for her, and the play had a year-long run on Broadway before becoming a six-time Oscar nominated film in 1940.

Just as we brought our production of Saint Joan to Chicago, Belle Moral to Ottawa and Topdog/Underdog to Toronto, I am thrilled that this production – directed by Theatre Calgary’s Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum – will move to Calgary for a run in winter 2015. Another example of how we are determined to get our work out to new audiences. -JM.
