The Rake's Progress

Until May 8, 2016

The circumstances of young Tom Rakewell are the focus of Igor Stravinsky's moral opera, based upon the infamous prints of William Hogarth depicting the pitfalls of 17th Century London, and the downfall of those who tread the dissolute path. From newly engaged country buck to raving lunatic, Tom's every wish is granted by the mysterious Nick Shadow, a man who is much more than he first appears.

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.

World music was never the same after The Gipsy Kings. Blending flamenco, Latin rhythms, western pop and jazz, their lightening quick guitars have been stunning audiences worldwide for over three decades. You'll know their version of The Eagles' 'Hotel California' that appears in The Big Lebowski, and their cover of 'You've Got a Friend in Me' from Toy Story 3 that gets Buzz's hips a-shaking.

He will always be unquestionably linked to his namesake series, but since finishing it in 1998, Jerry Seinfeld has kept extremely busy. In 2002 he starred as the subject of "Comedian", a behind-the-scenes documentary film that followed him both on and off-stage travelling on his national stand-up tour, which reflected on his post-Seinfeld life - including fatherhood. He's continued to work of various TV projects ever since, and regularly hits the road on tour to show the newcomers how it's done.

Matilda is a story about dreaming big, even though you may just be little. This hit musical is based on Roald Dahl's much-loved book of the same name, which tells the tale of an extraordinary child with hideous parents and an even more horrible headmistress. The production is given the musical treatment by the combined talents of Tim Minchin and the Royal Shakespeare Company - a winning combination earning it four awards at the 2013 Tonys!
