(Wed-Sat) 7:30 pm / (Sun) 2 pm Catawba Theatre

Directed by Matt Bulluck and Carl Forsman / Studio 3

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for drama, Elmer Rice’s Street Scene paints a

vivid panorama of the comedy and tragedy of daily life as experienced by

the colorful residents of a gritty New York neighborhood in 1928. Widely

praised for its naturalism, Street Scene endures for its authentic portrayal

of the real lives caught up in the conflict and community that are equally

present in urban living.

8 (Fri) UNCSA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: VERDI’S REQUIEM

7:30 pm Stevens Center

Opera’s Giuseppe Verdi turns the text of the Requiem Mass into a searing

drama, placing his soprano as the embattled heroine of his celebrated

work. From the trumpets of the last judgment to the eternal light of heaven,

Verdi’s ability to take the listener on a soul-searching journey is unique

in the repertoire of both choruses and orchestras. The Winston-Salem

Symphony Chorale joins the Cantata Singers and soloists from the Fletcher

Opera Institute, all under the direction of James Allbritten.

(Wed-Sat) 7:30 pm / 23 & 24 (Sat & Sun) 2 pm Freedman Theatre

Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch/Studio 4

Book by Joe Masteroff, Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, Music by Jerry Bock

Often referred to as the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me

tells the story of Georg and Amalia, two bickering co-workers who “meet”

through a Lonely Hearts column and fall in love as anonymous pen pals.

Sound familiar? It should! She Loves Me was adapted into the classic

Jimmy Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER and

more recently, YOU’VE GOT MAIL starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. This

delightfully witty musical romance that has been captivating audiences since

its award-winning Broadway premiere in 1963 is directed by distinguished

alumna Gaye Taylor Upchurch. Appropriate for the entire family.

SPECIAL EVENT PRICING: $22 Regular / $20 Students

24 (Sun) BRITTEN AT 100

2 pm Watson Hall

Born on St. Cecilia’s Day in 1913, Benjamin Britten has been

heralded as the finest British composer of the later 20th

century. His works, from the opera Peter Grimes to The War

Requiem to The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, have

all become standard repertoire. UNCSA joins the international celebration

of this composer’s 100th birthday by exploring his music.

Our year-long celebration of Britten’s music culminates in a recital marking

the centenary of his birth. Janine Hawley, Glenn Siebert, Brooks Whitehouse,

Allison Gagnon and their faculty colleagues join forces for a program

comprising selections from Britten’s recital compositions including

A Charm of Lullabies and Sonata in C.
