MINNEAPOLIS (December 20, 2015) – The Minnesota Opera's 2015–2016 season continues at the Ordway Music Theater on January 23, 2016, with Antonin Dvo?ák's Rusalka, the tragic tale of a beautiful water nymph who falls in love with a prince and yearns to become human. The Czech composer, beloved for his “New World” symphony and “Slavonic Dances,” suffuses Rusalka with a melancholy yet achingly beautiful sound that perfectly evokes Rusalka's fantastical realm and her doomed love affair; his lovely folk melodies and luminous arias, including Rusalka's heartbreaking “Song to the Moon,” seamlessly depict the two worlds – mortal and mythical – Rusalka tries, and fails, to bridge. Rusalka stars soprano Kelly Kaduce, who was acclaimed for her first-ever Rusalka with Minnesota Opera in 2008 and has been in demand in the role ever since. Minnesota Opera's vibrant, evocative production has traveled around North America, and Kaduce has frequently been tapped to go with it, performing at Opera Colorado and Opéra de Montréal among other companies.

4th Wall Theatre Company (formerly Stark Naked Theatre Company) opens its 2016-2017 season on September 9th  with Sam Shepard's Tony-nominated masterpiece, True West-a modern American classic exploring themes of sibling rivalry, art as commerce, and what it means to 'be a man.' Like a runaway train, this dark comedy about two brothers and their mutual resentment takes audiences on a thrill ride into the dark side of the human psyche, with laughs and unexpected moments of revelation along the way.  In its world premiere, the San Francisco Chronicle noted that True West is "clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic.  If that sounds contradictory, you're on to one aspect of Shepard's winning genius-the ability to make you think your watching one thing while at the same time he's presenting another."
