Richmond Ballet: "Carmina Burana" at Carpenter Theatre

Carmina Burana is one of the most popular works from the Richmond Ballet repertory. John Butler’s powerful, impassioned masterwork, choreographed originally in 1959 for New York City Opera, used the full breadth of Carl Orff’s choral score to explore the melding of classical ballet’s structure with the earthiness of contemporary dance, ultimately creating an innovative work that remains polarizing to this day. Orff’s grand-scale, incredibly varied musical spectacle was meant to overwhelm the senses, painting a lusty and emotional portrait of the cycle of medieval life, both celebrated and lamented in the 24 carminas, or songs, that were discovered in an ancient Bavarian monastery. With its avant-garde costuming and emotive lighting design, Carmina Burana is sure to soar with the powerful accompaniment of the Richmond Symphony and the Richmond Symphony Chorus, uplifting Orff’s oeuvre to its masterful heights, enlivening Butler’s extraordinary, groundbreaking work.

This piece will be created by artists Genesis Chapman, Rosemary Jesionwski, and Michael Pierce. Gallery visitors are welcome to come watch the artists and observe their process as they create this work that will be on display for the duration of Exquisite Corpse. Bidding on the Exquisite Corpse works will begin during… Saturday, November 1, 2014, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM. 319 W. Broad St. Richmond, VA. For more info visit www.1708gallery.org.

Buddy Jewel at the Broadberry

$25.00 - $30.00 Dreams come true. We've all heard that. So, after winning the Dallas regional ALABAMA June Jam Talent Search and a couple of wins as Male Vocalist Champion on Ed McMahon's StarSearch, Buddy Jewell packed up his family and headed to Nashville to make his dream come true. A native Arkansan, Buddy's earliest recollection of music was associated with the radio in his parents' old blue Dodge. "I must have been about four years old " recalls Buddy, "and I remember trying to look inside the radio dial, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "little people" that I thought lived in there! I figured there must have been at least 100 of them because of all those different voices and sounds coming out of that little box in the dashboard. And all the time, I was wondering how they got to be so small and wishing I could get in there with them. Details: http://www.thebroadberry.com/event/686207-buddy-jewell-richmond/.

Richmond Ballet: "Carmina Burana" at Carpenter Theatre

Carmina Burana is one of the most popular works from the Richmond Ballet repertory. John Butler’s powerful, impassioned masterwork, choreographed originally in 1959 for New York City Opera, used the full breadth of Carl Orff’s choral score to explore the melding of classical ballet’s structure with the earthiness of contemporary dance, ultimately creating an innovative work that remains polarizing to this day. Orff’s grand-scale, incredibly varied musical spectacle was meant to overwhelm the senses, painting a lusty and emotional portrait of the cycle of medieval life, both celebrated and lamented in the 24 carminas, or songs, that were discovered in an ancient Bavarian monastery. With its avant-garde costuming and emotive lighting design, Carmina Burana is sure to soar with the powerful accompaniment of the Richmond Symphony and the Richmond Symphony Chorus, uplifting Orff’s oeuvre to its masterful heights, enlivening Butler’s extraordinary, groundbreaking work.

Where will he go next? Up or down? Despite the tensions within the man and his music the new album makes his future trajectory abundantly clear. An independent role model, founder of Australia’s Jarrah Records, family man and proud skateboard aficionado, JB, in spite of his matey public persona, remains an enigma.

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life. The plot of this lavish production is loosely based on Théophile Gauthier’s novel Le Roman de la Momie.
