In honor of its 40th anniversary, acclaimed a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock presents its most ambitious live performance to date in Forty and Fierce. Led by noted director-choreographer Dianne McIntyre, the group's first scripted show features medleys of some of Sweet Honey's most popular songs, special guest musicians and intimate personal stories about the group's history from each member. With rousing a cappella renditions of spirituals, gospel, blues, reggae, hip-hop and jazz standards, the five-voice choir of African-American women captures the transcendent harmonies and driving rhythms of the black experience with an inspiring message of social justice. The group recently performed at the national memorial service for Nelson Mandela and has sung at the White House and collaborated with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Learn More

Carmen was very well performed. However, after the intermission, two inebriated women(in the row behind us)were constantly giggling and talking. Everyone in our section gave them looks. I don't think anyone said anything until after the performance. How could they re-enter that performance with glasses of wine in their hands?
French musician Georges Bizet composed Spanish music for the famous opera and Italian choreographer Amedeo Amodio choreographed a contemporary ballet. The movement incorporates contemporary scenic and costume design, with classical ballet as well as theatrical and modern movement to tell the story of the brash beauty who fiercely guards her independence and the two men obsessed with possessing her. Cincinnati Ballet Orchestra performs the melodic score that is replete with familiar favorites.
Amodio’s world premiere of Carmen at Tulsa Ballet garnered high praise from dance critic James D. Watts, Jr. in the Tulsa World: “Few of these ballets (other versions of Carmen) distil the essence of this story into so dramatic a form as Amodio’s. In fact, this is one of the best – if not the best – presentations of this passionate, tragic story that I’ve ever seen.”
The performance is scheduled to run one hour and 40 minutes, with one intermission.
