Back by popular demand, this performance of Chicago Symphony’s Beyond the Score® featuring Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring is designed for both classical music aficionados and newcomers to look deeper into the world of classical music. The first half offers a multimedia examination of the The Rite of Spring—its context in history, how it fits into the composer’s output of works, the details of Stravinsky’s life that influenced its creation—sharing the illuminating stories found “inside” the music. After intermission, concertgoers return to the hall with newly discovered knowledge to hear a performance of The Rite of Spring played in its entirety!

Who’s laughing now?

This famously tragic play-within-a-play tells the heartbreaking story of betrayal and jealousy in an Italian commedia dell’arte troupe.

Theater and reality collide in a dramatic climax of operatic proportions when Canio discovers his wife has eyes for another actor. “Laugh, clown, at your broken love!” he exclaims in one of opera’s most legendary tenor arias.

DON’T MISS the return of world renowned tenor Carl Tanner to the Austin Stage. His Canio at the New York City Opera was admiringly described as “the performance of a lifetime.”

WELCOME to the 11th East Austin Studio Tour! EAST is a free, self guided tour, capped by two weekends and spanning nine days. From November 10 – 18, we invite you to explore over 300 artist studios and exhibition spaces, and take part in a multitude of diverse art events. EAST is a unique opportunity for you to discover new artistic talent, see working studios, learn about artists’ tools, techniques, and inspirations, and of course to support your arts community by building your collection and supporting local businesses.

The East Austin Studio Tour goes beyond the art. It’s also really about engaging as a community. We hope everyone dives into EAST and takes advantage of this unique opportunity to meet new folks, form new relationships, find new places to shop and eat, discover the hidden charming and curious places on the eastside, exchange ideas, support one another, help Austin thrive locally, and get excited about being here in this city which we think is so excellent.
