Opening October 5, Intimate Details: Prints by James Tissot celebrates the Zimmerli Art Museum's recent acquisition of several exquisite etchings by this noted chronicler of both Belle-Epoque Paris and Victorian London. Even as artists increasingly focused on depicting aspects of contemporary life during the late 19th century, Tissot's careful attention to portraying the most current fashions, furnishings, and social activities in his paintings stood out. One critic even claimed that 'a picture by M. Tissot will be enough for archaeologists of the future to reconstitute our epoch.' On November 5, curator-led exhibition tours take place during Art After Hours: First Tuesdays, which is free and open to the public.

The Hungarian State Opera Orchestra is the oldest theatre orchestra in Hungary. Due to the vast selection of performances offered by the Opera, it is the most employed Hungarian symphony orchestra. Its roots reach back as far as 1838, when Ferenc Erkel, the father of the Hungarian national opera as a genre organised an opera orchestra for the Hungarian Theatre of Pest. The orchestra moved into their present home, the Opera House after its inauguration in 1884 and was presided over by notable principal music directors including Gustav Mahler.

HIR is anything but traditional. Playwright Taylor Mac has termed his work 'absurd realism' wherein 'the absurdity comes from a heightened but realistic point of view'. Those bold, brave, and open enough to sit in the discomfort that may come with looking at things from diverse points of view will be rewarded with a rich, and very real perspective on the world in which we live.

KIM'S CONVENIENCE at Taproot Theatre is full of laughs and heart. A convenience store is often the hot spot of a community, where you can find a little of whatever you need. For the Kim family, the convenience store is much more than that. It is their hope, their conduit to a brighter future. Its constant need of attention is also an albatross and point of contention. When an unsuspecting police officer responds to a 911 call from the store, he finds more than a variety of snacks. KIM's CONVENIENCE is a witty look at everyday life with surprising insight into human nature.

Raised in rural Washington state in the log house built by her parents, Jessi McNeal has been singing and writing songs in some shape or form for most of her life. Simple hymns and old country tunes formed the soundtrack of her childhood, and her ear for melody and love of storytelling developed at an early age. Americana, bluegrass and folk traditions are present and alive in her lyrics and music, as the imagery and landscapes of country life weave their way into  her songs. Her sound is comforting and inviting, though she doesn't shy away from the difficulties and struggles of life's journey, instead using songwriting as a soothing balm for many wounds, creating songs rimmed in redemption.

Angelic-voiced Americana songcrafter Jessi McNeal has unveiled 'In Between,' a poignant new track and accompanying video from her forthcoming stunner The Driveway, out on August 16th. 'Jessi McNeal finds beauty in the waiting,' Wide Open Country said in their premiere of the single. 'I feel like the overarching theme of the album is really about the middle ground - the in-between, the waiting, the hope-not-yet seen,' McNeal told Wide Open Country. 'And this particular song really shines a light on that vulnerable space. I wrote this song when I was wrestling with some difficult circumstances - wanting things to be better and feeling some regrets as well. I needed to acknowledge both of those sentiments and to accept that I was simply in that in-between space, where the answers and resolution had yet to arrive. I sometimes hear people refer to it as the 'messy middle,' but lately, I've been thinking of it as the 'sacred middle.'  Brené  Brown says, 'owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.' This isn't easy work and I'm certainly no expert on it, but I'm grateful for the people in my life who have encouraged me to avoid taking shortcuts through pain when I've faced seasons like this,' she said. 'I know I'm stronger for it, and I hope I have more to offer to those around me because of it.'

Taylor Mac's sly, subversive comedy begins with prodigal son Isaac returning from the war, only to find a house in revolt. Liberated from an abusive marriage, his mom Paige is on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. His sister Maxine is no longer his sister but his transgender/genderqueer sibling Max who uses the pronouns ze and hir. His once violent father is being fed estrogen and dressed as a clown. But in this anarchic reimagining of the classic American kitchen sink drama, annihilating the past doesn't always free you from it.
