This timely play is a kind of poetic and comic fable set in the twilight zone of the not-quite-true. At the Cafe Chez Francis, a group of promoters plot to tear up Paris in order to unearth the oil which a prospector believes he has located in the neighborhood. These grandiose plans come to the attention of The Madwoman of Chaillot who is ostensibly not normal in her mind but who is soon shown to be the very essence of practical worldly goodness and common sense. She sees through the crookedness of the prospector and insists that the world is being turned into an unhappy place by the thieves and those who are greedy for worldly goods and power. At a tea party attended by other "mad" women of Paris, she has brought together representatives of the despoilers of the earth and wreckers of its happiness, and has them tried and condemned to extermination. This delightful fantasy coveys a strong sentiment and powerful message that will resonate with today’s audience.

Riders to the Sea

All performances of Riders to the Sea are on the Brunner Theatre Main Stage

Friday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, November 18 at 2:00 p.m.

Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Opera@Augustana and the brand new Augustana Chamber Orchestra present "Odysseys on Land and Sea," a program comprised of three gorgeous British musical offerings of the early 20th Century. Gerald Finzi's A Severn Rhapsody opens the performance, an evocative orchestral fantasy inspired by a poem of Rupert Brooke, expressing a longing for home while living abroad. This forms a prelude to a theatrical presentation of Ralph Vaughan Williams' song cycle Songs of Travel, a selection of poems from Robert Louis Stevenson's extensive collection of poems by the same name, in which the poet's cherished relationship with home is fraught with an equally strong wanderlust. The climax of the performance is Vaughan Williams' opera Riders to the Sea, his powerful setting of Irish playwright J. M. Synge's tragic play about the perils and poignancies of living by the sea. The achingly beautiful music combined with thought-provoking poetic and literary depictions of place and travel in all their many facets of our experience offers the audience a rare treat. Let us take you on the journey.
