The "Ring of Kerry" encircles that part of Ireland where the mountains are higher, the greens are deeper and the Irish spirit is at its most rugged and invigorating. Thus, it's the perfect name for this Irish music group, beloved for its hearty and evocative take on Celtic music. All five members sing and play several instruments, including Irish classics like the bodhran drum and penny whistle as well as more American additions like guitar and hammered dulcimer. The resulting sound can swell with the foot-stomping blast of a drinking song ... or grow quiet for a tear-jerking ballad of which the Irish (and just about everybody else) are so fond. Now this remarkable ensemble that floored Garrison Keillor -- a man who has heard his share of Celtic music and then some -- comes to perform at the Maplewood Performing Arts Theatre . Learn More

Wuthering Heights is based on Emily Brontë‘s gothic romance. Unable to bridge the chasm of social class, Heathcliff and Catherine are consumed by a love that can never be, and its legacy haunts the windswept Yorkshire moors. The music of the opera, composed by Hollywood legend Bernard Herrmann, underscores the novel’s passion, prejudice and mystery.
Bernard Herrmann was an Academy Award-winning American composer whose unforgettable collaborations include Psycho with Alfred Hitchcock, Citizen Kane with Orson Welles and Taxi Driver with Martin Scorsese. Minnesota Opera’s new production of his only opera celebrates the centennial of the composer’s birth and is the first major revival of this forgotten masterpiece since it was written in Minneapolis in 1951.
