TOSCA: Metropolitan Opera
Mar 31 @ 2:00 pm

Giacomo Puccini’s

Tosca

Sir David McVicar’s “smashing new production” is “a grand triumph” (Huffington Post), featuring an exciting cast led by soprano Sonya Yoncheva in the title role of the fiery diva and Vittorio Grigolo as her passionate lover, Cavaradossi. The pair are “youthful, ardent, and innocent … their duets electric, their kisses hot and numerous” (Wall Street Journal). Yoncheva’s sound is “richly textured and shimmering,” and “Grigolo’s Mario is a true hothead … complete with thrilling top notes” (New York Times). Željko Lučić is “an imposing figure with a voice to match” (Wall Street Journal) as the villainous police chief, Scarpia, and Emmanuel Villaume conducts.

Premiere: Teatro Costanzi, Rome, 1900. Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination. Tosca’s popularity is further secured by a superb and exhilarating dramatic sweep, a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, and a career-defining title role.

ROSIE & THE RIVETERS
Apr 7 @ 7:30 pm

Rosie & the Riveters have something to say, so listen up!!!

The retro trio from Saskatoon are described as “fiercely talented and sassy dames who perform uplifting folk music with a vintage 1940s flair”. Known for their glinting harmonies, swinging beats, body percussion, scintillating dance moves, humour, and just enough ooh-la-la to keep your toes tapping long after the show is over.

All of that, and they also have something important to say — so listen up! Comprised of Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand and Farideh Olsen, the trio says they never planned to get political. But after opening a newspaper or watching the news these days made it impossible to see the status of women around the world and stay silent. The result is Ms. Behave – a collection of gritty, sultry, vintage-inspired folk anthems that paint a portrait of a woman’s voice in a man’s world. The band wrote over 40 songs in a cabin in Northern Saskatchewan before travelling to Toronto to collaborate with heavy-hitting Canadian songwriters like Royal Wood and Matthew Barber.

A quick read through song titles like Gotta Get Paid, Let ‘em Talk and I Wanna be King gives an idea of what they have to say. While their single, Ms. Behave, lays down a Bill Withers-inspired groove and rejects the policing of women’s behavior, I Believe You sprung from the outrage and sorrow they felt after hearing the recent avalanche of stories of sexual assault. Produced by Joshua Van Tassel (Sarah Slean, Rose Cousins, Great Lake Swimmers), their sophomore album echoes Aretha Franklin’s demand for R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

Rosie & the Riveters believe women are the world’s greatest untapped resource which is why they invest 20% of merchandise profits in microfinance initiatives through KIVA.org. They’ve helped women like Alice in Kenya expand her horticulture farm and Maria in Ecuador purchase a sewing machine for her tailoring business. To date, they’ve contributed more than $7400 to over 150 projects around the world.

Their debut record, Good Clean Fun!, has an impressive list of accolades from sell-out shows across Canada to performing for British royalty and multiple nominations along the way. In 2016, they took home a Saskatchewan Arts Award, a prestigious recognition for emerging artists.

According to Rich Terfry, host of CBC Radio 2’s Drive, they “put on one of the best live shows you’ll ever see – you’ll go home with a big smile on your face”.

BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY
Apr 10 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents:

BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY

USA, 2017
English
86 minutes
Documentary. Film History

 

Known for her iconic look, wild-child antics, and scandalous private life, Hedy Lamarr was revered as “the most beautiful woman in the world” in 1940s tabloids. Yet, few know her true story; an undiscovered genius, she pioneered a secret communication system intended to guide US torpedoes during WWII, which became the basis for contemporary technologies like GPS, Bluetooth, and WiFi. Though she would attempt to patent the idea, the US Navy thought she was better suited to selling war bonds and entertaining troops instead. Sadly, the name
Hedy Lamarr would later only be known for the inventor’s infamous six marriages, affairs, drug use, and obsession with plastic surgery. Throughout her life, Lamarr’s face proved to be a blessing and a curse, opening one door, but halting the possibility of opening another. Produced by Susan Sarandon, the film is a trailblazing tribute to women whose contributions have gone unrecognized and an inspiration for future generations of female inventors to come.

What makes “Bombshell” intriguing is not just Lamarr’s gift for invention, it’s also what a fiery individualist she was, someone who had no regrets about her eventful life (“You learn from everything”), not even its racy, tabloid elements.

IVAN COYOTE & Friends
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm

IVAN COYOTE & Friends bring Story-telling and Music to King’s Theatre

Yukon-born story-teller Ivan Coyote is the award-winning author of eleven books, creator of four short films, and has released three albums that combine storytelling with music. Based in Vancouver, Coyote is something of a legend out west as a seasoned stage performer and collaborator who challenges gender norms.

For more than twenty years Coyote has been traveling the world telling semi-autobiographical stories that are in equal measure heartbreaking and hilarious. On tour with three musicians — high-energy drummer and percussionist Sally Zori, base player Pebbles Willekes, and trumpet player Alison Gorman — their show is “part anthem, part campfire story, and part instructions for the dismantling of the gender stories we tell ourselves and each other.”

The Globe and Mail newspaper called Coyote “a natural-born storyteller”, the Ottawa Xpress once said that “Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture”, and Quills Magazine says Ivan has a “distinctive and persuasive voice, a flawless sense of pacing, and an impeccable sense of story.”

Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity in their work, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur. Ivan’s stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world.

Ivan Coyote was born and raised in a large Irish Catholic family in Whitehorse, Yukon, and learned the craft of storytelling while gathered around their grandmother’s kitchen table on long northern winter nights.  Coyote’s work tackles the difficult subjects of family, class, gender identity, and social justice, always with the silver tongue of a master storyteller, an eye for the beauty found in what makes us all human, and an ear for the hilarity of life and love.

Through a new King’s Theatre initiative called “FrontRowYouth”, students can attend the show at no cost (please call the theatre for details). The show will appeal to people of all ages and persuasions who are interested in an authentic, fresh and dynamic live theatre experience. For tickets, contact King’s Theatre at 902-532-7704 or go to www.kingstheatre.ca.
