Stone Soup - Apr 21 - May 21, 2017

 

The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto our main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal. Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.

A Lutheran take on the classical "hero" journey, RISE UP, O MEN is the story of men (and women) who become larger than themselves; it's the story of a group of farmers and John Deere dealers, and church basement ladies, who rise to the requirement of heroism in order to help their community and its future. RISE UP, O MEN is a new musical featuring the men of the church and your favorite church basement Ladies who serve them. The year is 1964, in the basement kitchen of the Lutheran Church in rural Minnesota. As these hard-working farmers discuss their scrap lumber piles and their tractors and preparations for the Centennial Celebration, they unintentionally disrupt the order of the kitchen...but that's what happens when you let the roosters in the hen house.

"... the kind of theatrical experience of which legends are made." –The New York Times

Red Giselle

Returning with the sumptuous and cinematic ballet that first captivated our attention in 2000, Eifman Ballet brings back their unforgettable Red Giselle for the Northrop season finale. This newly choreographed drama tells the story of Russian prima ballerina Olga Spessivtseva, who fled Soviet Russia in 1923 to win acclaim in Paris, London, and the United States. Her lightness, virtuosity, and perfect technique made her an international star, but her own life tragically mirrored that of the fragile romantic heroine Giselle—a role for which she earned great acclaim. She succumbed to depression and madness and spent two decades languishing in an asylum, presumed dead by the dance world. Propelled by an electrifying score that combines Tchaikovsky and Bizet, Red Giselle is a spellbinding full-length work performed only by Eifman Ballet.

“It took courage to make Red Giselle just before the fall of communism, and it took genius to make it this good.” –The San Francisco Chronicle

“Eifman's ballet offers up scenes from Spessivtseva's life and takes the audience from revolutionary Petrograd to Paris in the Jazz Age, from the shelter of ballet class and the insular world of art to the horror of political oppression and the ineffable melancholy of exile.” –The San Francisco Chronicle
