Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

On 9.11, the world stopped. On 9.12, their stories moved us all.

This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Broadway’s Come From Away is a Best Musical–winner all across North America, written by Tony Award® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director Christopher Ashley.

Orlando Shakespeare Theater presents ‘Richard II’

Orlando Shakespeare Theater

By William Shakespeare. I wasted time, and now doth time waste me. Convinced of his divine right to rule, King Richard II never expected to be undone by his own maladroit mortal wrongs. By brashly putting his own vanity before the needs of his kingdom, he creates the perfect opening for Henry Bolingbroke to seize the throne. Shakespeare’s deeply moving and insightful retelling reveals how one man’s bumbling mistakes can shape a nation’s political landscape and change the course of history.

Shows: Wednesdays through Sundays

Orlando Opera Presents Pagliacci & Pulcinella

Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Experience a premiere pairing where tragedy, comedy, and dance combine, courtesy of Ruggero Leoncavallo and Igor Stravinsky. The resplendent soprano Suzanne Kantorski is Nedda, and both works are conducted by Clinton Smith and directed by Octavio Cardenas. Pulcinella is a work inspired by Italy’s Commedia Dell’arte tradition with music adapted from early-18th-century master Giovanni Pergolesi. Pagliacci features not only some of opera’s greatest melodies but also a gripping story in the Italian verismo tradition of the early 20th century. Here, life on stage intersects all too closely with life offstage, culminating in a tragic lover’s revenge.
