Der Rosenkavalier

Pacific Northwest Opera

Friday, April 14 7:00pm

Sunday, April 16 1:30pm

Friday, April 21 7:00pm

Sunday, April 23 1:30pm

Der Rosenkavalier (“The Knight of the Rose”) has some of the most sublime music ever written. This comic opera by Richard Strauss and the poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal is suffused with the gaiety of Vienna during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa with it’s sparkling waltzes but also the spirit and grace of Mozart. In addition to its madcap comic scenes and daring plot twists, there are moments when time seems to stand still, when the

music and lyrics become evanescent and comedy gives way to bitter-sweet musings on life, the passing of time and nostalgia for lost love.

Sung in German with English supertitles.

Pre-concert lecture in the concert hall 45 minutes prior to performance. Learn about the production, history, costumes, and more.



The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc

McIntyre Hall Presents

Friday, April 28 7:30pm

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio that masterfully blends the traditions of Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands. Olav Luksengård Mjelva (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland

Islands), have swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since the

inception of the Bloc in early 2009.

They maintain a firm focus on the traditions of their home while developing a sound that has been described as “meaningful”, ”intense” and “invigorating”. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs & bass lines creates a

sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from

three fiddles.


“Seldom before can three fiddlers have sounded so well matched as the Nordic Fiddlers Bloc.

And seldom before can three fiddles have sounded so much like four

and at times five instruments without using electronic trickery.” ~ The Herald

Join us for a pre-concert talk 45 minutes prior to the concert.


Owen & Mzee The Musical

McIntyre Hall Presents

Sunday, April 30 2:00pm

The amazing true story of the orphaned baby hippo named Owen and 130-year-old giant tortoise named Mzee whose remarkable friendship touched millions around the world. When Owen was stranded after a tsunami, villagers in Kenya worked tirelessly to rescue him. Then, to everyone’s amazement, the orphan hippo and the elderly tortoise adopted each other. Now they are inseparable, swimming, eating, and playing together.

Here is a joyous reminder that in times of trouble, friendship is stronger than the differences that too often pull us apart.

Ages 4 - 12
