Some of the most moving and spiritual compositions
for a solo instrument in history, Bach’s Suites for
Unaccompanied Cello (1717–1723) take on new life in a
program offering a brilliant musical variation on the
concept of A Moveable Feast. The acclaimed IsraeliAmerican cellist pairs each of Bach’s beloved works
with newly-commissioned suites by Philip Glass, Du
Yun, Vijay Iyer, and others.
Since its establishment in 1997, this acclaimed
orchestra has become recognized as one of the very
finest period instrument ensembles in the world and
has appeared in more US cities than any other Baroque
orchestra in history. Acclaimed Scottish violinist
Nicola Benedetti joins the ensemble for a dynamic

of American modern dance since its inception and is
considered one of the world’s greatest ensembles. The

IT’S DARK OUTSIDE
Puppetry, mask, animation, and live performance merge seamlessly in this epic
western about an old man and his noble tent who go wandering together into
the wild. Inspired by experiences and research into Alzheimer’s and Sundowner’s
Syndrome, the play is a heartfelt, fearless, and inventive voyage about aging,
getting lost, and trying not to be found.

ALVIN SPUTNIK: DEEP
SEA EXPLORER [AUSTRALIA]
With a multi-talented cast of dancers, actors, mimes,
and comedians, Prague-based Cirk La Putyka is one of
Europe’s most pioneering physical theatre companies.
Set to the music of Mozart, Handel, Shostakovich, and
others, Slapstick Sonata is an absurd yet poetic theatre
piece without text or words. Visual poetry meets
physical comedy with a dash of contemporary circus in
this glorious explosion of color, humor, movement, and
silliness. A co-production with Circo Aereo, Helsinki.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a “magnificent Mount Everest of a nose” blocks his path to true love. From
Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, tongue–tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo beautiful Roxane—but is she falling for
Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s soul? You, your kids, and a cast of lively actors will answer this question through a lightning–paced story of
duels, love, sacrifice—and an enormous schnoz.
You’ll laugh out loud when this comic masterpiece untangles the double lives of two well-to-do society-gentlemen, both of whom have assumed
the same alias in order to escape the doldrums of everyday life. Mistaken identities, a mysterious friend named Bunbury, and a misplaced
handbag lead to unexpected turns (and happy endings!) in Oscar Wilde’s time-honored tour de force of cleverness and charm.
For the viewing pleasure of our audiences, BYU Theatre is thrilled to present both The Importance of Being Earnest and Travesties simultaneously.

What happens when the communist Lenin, the dadaist Tristan Tzara, and the author James Joyce meet in a library? In Stoppard’s award-winning
classic, these important historical figures cross wits on the nature and function of politics and art in a farcical tale of misunderstandings,
mistaken identity, and a misplaced handbag borrowed directly from Wilde’s masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest.
One of the most popular Disney movies of all time captures hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect stage musical! Based on the
books by P. L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins is an enchanting mixture of irresistible
story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stage magic.
For the viewing pleasure of our audiences, BYU Theatre is thrilled to present both The Importance of Being Earnest and Travesties simultaneously.

“Something wicked this way comes!” Young audiences will get caught up in this cautionary tale of ambition as they watch Macbeth’s blinding
quest for power transform him from a courageous knight to a corrupt king. Bring your kids to see a band of nimble actors use drums, puppets,
and masks to bring this 50–minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy to life.
The Puritan purge of witchcraft in old Salem sets the stage for this Tony Award-winning tragedy from one of America’s greatest playwrights.
Both a riveting history and a timely allegory for our modern-day world, The Crucible is “a powerful drama” (New York Times) about deceit,
hysteria, and persecution in seventeenth-century Massachusetts.

Paris, 1924: To run, to win–for God’s glory, for a better world. Adapted from the Academy Award-winning film for the West End stage in honor of the

BYU Theatre is proud to present the US premiere, a tale of two men who pursued their Olympic dreams against all odds—and won.
