Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 3/23/2014 CINDERELLA
North 4th Theatre
3/21-3/29/2014
A not so perfect love story about a young girl in love with a Prince and a Prince that is in love with himself. The King has decided his son must marry to fund his "royal" lifestyle, and creates a TV reality show in which the Prince has three days to pick a bride from eligible contestants, which include Cinderella's step-sisters. A Fairy Godfather appears to help Cinderella get to the palace. The Godfather works behind the scenes to make sure that the Prince sees Cinderella for who she really is, while also helping him to figure out what it means to really love.

Volcano Vista High School
3/21-3/29/2014
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Popejoy Hall
3/30-3/30/2014
Author, poet, and screenwriter Sherman Alexie was named one of The New Yorker's 20 top writers for the 21st century. The New York Times Book Review described him as "one of the major lyric voices of our time," and Men's Journal called him "the world's first fast-talking and wisecracking mediagenic American-Indian superstar." A gifted orator, he tells tales of contemporary American Indian life laced with razor-sharp humor, unsettling candor and biting wit. Recent books include: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Flight, Face, and most recently, Blasphemy. Alexie wrote and produced the film Smoke Signals based on his book The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 3/23/2014 THE PEARL FISHERS
National Hispanic Cultural Center
3/23-3/30/2014
Before Carmen, there was The Pearl Fishers. This sparklingly novel work by the youthful Bizet (just 24 when the opera was composed) foreshadows all of the brilliance that was to come later. The duet "Au fond du temple saint" is probably the single most famous duet for tenor-baritone in all of opera. Focused on the love triangle between Leila, Nadir, and Zurga, the drama unfolds against a delightfully inventive and tuneful musical backdrop that has an especially prominent role for the chorus, which acts almost as a "fifth character". This production will feature our first-ever collaboration with the New Mexico Symphonic Chorus under the direction of Maestro Roger Melone. Opera Southwest welcomes Soprano Shana Blake Hill (Violetta, La Traviata 2011) back to the stage as the beautiful Leila.

Now Playing Onstage in Albuquerque - Week of 3/23/2014 HEMBRAS DE PLUMA
National Hispanic Cultural Center
3/20-3/30/2014
Hembras de Pluma is a collective of women artists who have come together to present our personal stories of childhood, growing older, loss, love, grief, and joy. As comadres, we would often sit around the table and share stories with one another, laughing and crying, dreaming and remembering. In the summer of 2013, we decided to write and perform these stories as a way to honor our histories, our ancestors, our families, and ourselves. We present nine original stories in the form of monologues, poetry, and short plays. We call our collective Hembras de Pluma. Feathered women. Women wielding the pen. Hembra is woman, feminine, rooted. Pluma is pen or feather. When we work in a collective spirit with the intention of lifting each other up, we all benefit. We lift our voices to the sky and take flight. Hembras de Pluma is presented as part of Women & Creativity 2014 by Las Meganenas and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
