  • KSU Opera Theater Presents: Hotel Casablanca by Thomas Pasatieri

    November 14, 2014, 8:00 pmBuy Tickets

    Bailey Performance Center at KSU
    Mistaken identities and unbridled passion make for hot times in 1940’s Texas! Beautifully colorful music, Texas-sized characters, and steamy shenanigans kick up some dust at the Hotel Casablanca. The Hotel Casablanca, a comic opera in two acts, is written by composer and librettist Thomas Pasatieri. The story, inspired by the French farce “A Flea in Her Ear” by Georges Feydeau, takes place in Texas in 1948 and tells the story of a wealthy Texan couple who want to “toughen up” their 25 year-old nephew from New York. The action transpires at the Double-T Ranch and a seedy hotel, The Hotel Casablanca, where an enchanting array of assorted and eccentric guests add to the mayhem of the young city-slicker’s stay. “The Hotel Casablanca is one of those rarer-than-hens-teeth works: contemporary, well-crafted, richly musical and riotously funny with a brisk two-hour running time and plenty of roles for energetic young voices.” Georgia Rowe, Contra Costa Times

  • Atlanta Symphony Orchestra; Marin Alsop, conductor; Julian Rachlin, violin

    January 16, 2015, 8:00 pmBuy Tickets

    Bailey Performance Center at KSU
    The first female conductor of a major U.S. orchestra and one of the best, Marin Alsop returns to the ASO after a long absence. She conducts an evening of greats, including Barber’s dramatic Second Essay and Tchaikovsky’s final symphony, his sixth, the “Pathétique.” This greatest of all of Tchaikovsky’s works premiered just one week before his untimely death. Violinist Julian Rachlin plays Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, the composer’s last commission before he returned home to Russia, homesick and ready to settle down. This is the second of three performances at Kennesaw State University as part of the Orchestra’s extended residency during the 2014-15 season.
