Two classic rock super-groups team up for The Soundtrack of Summer Tour, featuring former Eagles guitarist Don Felder as an opener. Known for their four consecutive multi-platinum albums featuring huge hits like "Come Sail Away," "Renegade," "Blue Collar Man," "Fooling Yourself" and "Too Much Time on My Hands," Styx also has two Super Bowl appearances and multiple chart-topping tours under their belt, with no end in sight. Foreigner also continues to play to sold-out houses, led by original band member, vocalist and lead guitarist Mick Jones -- who penned the famed power ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is." Their self-titled Foreigner disc spawned monster smashes still heard 'round the world today: "Feels Like the First Time," "Cold as Ice" and "Long, Long Way From Home." They followed that up with Top 30 tunes like "Juke Box Hero," "Urgent," "Head Games," "Say You Will" and more. Learn More
Written in 1912, the fevered intensity, gallows humor and touching pathos of Pierrot is drenched in the music of smoke-filled Berlin cabaret clubs and the bizarre world of the German melodrama.
Directed by renowned New York choreographer Mark DeChiazza, it features soprano Lucy Shelton, dancer Elyssa Dole, and eighth blackbird percussionist Matthew Duvall in the title role. The musicians of eighth blackbird perform the challenging work entirely from memory, so the players can take important roles in the drama.
Director Mark DeChiazza writes: "_Pierrot_ has no conventional narrative. Instead of telling a “story” I will use dance to highlight the sometimes dramatic, sometimes satirical nature of the relationship between text and music. Movement and gesture will connect to the human core of this amazing work, and expand – rather than circumscribe – its meaning."
Pierrot Lunaire was premiered at the Ojai Festival in June 2009, where eighth blackbird was Music Director.
