Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

This was a really well put together production. The visual were thoughtful. My one negative experience was that the supertitles were slightly too high to be comfortable to read them and watch the performance simultaneously from the back of the orchestra.
The esteemed Parisian theater company presents a legendary production! Director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota has reunited his remarkable 2004 cast of actors for encore performances of Eugène Ionesco's masterpiece of the absurd, Rhinocéros. When first presented in Paris, critics were ecstatic. "A masterpiece," raved Le Monde. "A veritable tour de force on the part of the director... [and] a magical embrace between the show and the spectator." In Rhinocéros, a lone hero watches his friends turn into rhinoceroses one by one until he alone stands unchanged. With a marvelous sense of dark, subversive humor, Ionesco expresses his horror of ideological conformism, inspired by the rise of the fascist state in 1930s Romania.
In French with English supertitles.
