The result is Chopin without Piano, a staggeringly powerful production that coaxes new ways of considering this master composer—musically, emotionally and even politically. Accompanied by a full symphonic orchestra of Boston Conservatory students, actress Barbara Wysocka invites audiences into an intimate and raw conversation about Chopin, his music and the struggles of cultural identity with his home country, Poland.

With the grit and imagery of a dark graphic novel comes this violent story that destroys the boundaries between domination and submission.

Internationally renowned Teatrocinema employs a dizzying array of 2D and 3D effects to fuse virtual and physical worlds.

The hottest play of 1859 is back! There's trouble at the plantation: no one is falling in love with who they should be, someone has been murdered, and unless the mail comes soon all hope is lost! OBIE-Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Neighbors) transforms a 19th century melodrama for today's "post-racial" spectacle-obsessed world. An Octoroon, directed by Summer L. Williams, is an incendiary, subversively funny exploration of identity, jammed with sensation and surprises.

One of Russia's premiere theatre companies presents this luminous retelling of Chekhov's masterpiece, which follows three sisters who are forced to leave Moscow for life in a provincial town. The family bravely confronts the tragic rift between personal desires and harsh, everyday realities. In this surprisingly sexy and emotionally raw production, Three Sisters gives us the chance to reflect on issues of economic recession and class disparity through the lens of the personal, cultural and political changes that shook Russia at the end of the 19th century. Directed by renowned director Lev Dodin and performed in Russian with English supertitles, this staging is a testament to the legacy of one of the world's greatest playwrights.
After the nonstop joy parade that was last season's The Magic Flute, South Africa's world-renowned Isango Ensemble returns to Boston with two new reimagined opera classics: uCarmen and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Based on their award-winning film U-Carmen eKhayelitsha, uCarmen is an artistic triumph that transports us to a modern South African township to follow the story of a strong, independent woman who will not be tamed. Packed with transcendent music, passion and romance, uCarmen vividly recreates Bizet's opera in a way that can only be described as "pure Isango." A new production to Isango's repertoire, A Midsummer Night's Dream weaves the text of Shakespeare's famous play into Benjamin Britten's opera and indigenous South African music and dance. A story of enchantment, Isango's Midsummer transforms the traditional play into a familiar yet surreal night of magic, love and music.
