Rapunzel

Telluride Festivals and Events - Sat, 11/29/2014 - 19:30
Rapunzel    is a witty, tongue-in-cheek, one hour musical retelling of a perennial favorite that gives us a possessive mother who happens to be a witch, a tentative young man who happens to be a prince, and a strong-willed but naïve young girl with the longest hair you’re ever likely to come across. Designed with an appeal to young and adult audiences alike, the play has a contemporary moral about parent-child relationships, the challenges of growing up (for both children and adults), the joys of love, and challenges of being different.  With a book and lyrics by two creators of the hit television show "Friends," rest assured this fairy tale isn't going to be business as usual! Doors open at 6:30pm Tickets: $12

Turtle Island Quartet

Telluride Festivals and Events - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 19:00
Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American Folklore, the Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings.  Winner of the 2006 and most recently, the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Classical Crossover Album, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles, and by devising a performance practice that honors both, the state of the art has inevitably been redefined.  Cellist nonpareil Yo-Yo Ma has proclaimed TIQ to be "a unified voice that truly breaks new ground - authentic and passionate - a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today." Doors open at 6:30pm Tickets: $28 Adults, $20 Children

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. Persuaded by his life-long friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d’Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman...
