Freely adapted from Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Nothing is as thrilling on the stage as a well-crafted tale, and Oliver! is just such a show. Based on the Dickens novel, it engages with its pathos and drama, while delighting everyone with the musical numbers "Food, Glorious Food," "I'd Do Anything," "Where is Love?," "Consider Yourself," "As Long As He Needs Me," and "Who Will Buy." Dickens' characters are brought to life-perhaps larger than life-with all their facets glowing in this production.

Tobias Picker's AWAKENINGS Score to be Performed at Mannes College The New School for Music, 5/2
by BWW News Desk - Apr 23, 2014

The score from Tobias Picker's first ballet Awakenings will be performed in-concert for the first time at Mannes College The New School for Music on Friday, May 2 at 8 p.m. The ballet was originally commissioned and premiered in 2010 by the Rambert Dance Company in London, choreographed by Aletta Collins. Inspired by the themes and case studies in the novel by neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks, Awakenings tells the true-life stories of eight hospital patients that exist in a catatonic state of paralysis called “encephalitis lethargica” as doctors try to medicate them out of their stupor. The results are short-lived, often violent episodes of tics and seizures before the patients regress back into petrified inertia. Awakenings will be performed by the Mannes American Composers Ensemble (MACE) in the Concert Hall at Mannes College. Tickets are free and for more information, please visit www.newschool.edu/mannes.
