Now Playing Onstage in Costa Mesa - Week of 1/13/2013 TAKACS QUARTET
Samueli Theater
1/18-1/18/2013
2013 is the centennial of Benjamin Britten's birth, and a highlight of this program is sure to be String Quartet #3 by the British composer, one of the central figures of 20th century music. "We enjoy playing Schubert's late quartets with Benjamin Britten's final quartet. Both works are influenced by the voice; Schubert's drawing on the song Gretchen am Spinnrade while Britten quotes from his opera Death in Venice. Both works explore the power of music to transcend life's tribulations. Haydn invented the string quartet with his extraordinary innovations of voicing, dialogue and form. His string quartets are often programmed at the beginning of the concert where they too easily become a warm-up for both The Players and the audience. This program finishes with one of the Opus 76s, taking the string quartet genre back to its very beginnings." Takacs Quartet

Segerstrom Hall
1/22-2/3/2013
England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London and New York.. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, that bring to live breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
