Sometimes the most profound way to talk about important issues is to sing about them -- just ask composers like Puccini or Wagner who weaved contemporary concerns throughout their seemingly "ageless" works. The Canticle of the Black Madonna is the latest entry in the great tradition of operas that explore challenging issues with breathlessly beautiful music. Set in Louisiana in 2010, The Canticle chronicles an American soldier's return to his wife and home -- where he confronts not only the Gulf oil spill, but the equally profound consequences of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Lush and stirring, the beautifully-staged production ultimately confirms the healing power of love. Portland's Newmark Theatre will host the world premiere of this superb new opera (in English) from composer Ethan Gans-Morse and librettist Tiziana DellaRovere. Learn More

Love Love Loved it!
First impression: Friendly staff, nice decor, warm intimate feel, nice bar area, super clean restrooms, real candles from the ticket booth to the restrooms were a great touch. Stage area & interior of theater was re-done beautifully. We got there early & really had a chance to appreciate the decor & vibe of the place.
Came to see the Flat Foot Follies Variety Show with the Shanghai Woolies. The music & singing were really top notch (even my skeptic husband loved it). Acoustics were superb. The Arial act was so graceful & beautiful. Dancers were all so talented & such a variety of acts. The show was very entertaining , the price was great and the venue charming. Could not have asked for a better evening. Check out the place it's a winner!
