City Ballet's season closer not only brings the beautiful Act II of Swan Lake to the stage for Mother's Day weekend, but also presents the world premiere of resident choreographer Elizabeth Rowe Wistrich's work set to Mozart's "Requiem," featuring the acclaimed dance company, a 100-voice chorus, vocal soloists and the live City Ballet Orchestra. This spectacular new piece forgoes a literal staging of the text, for a more powerful movement-based interpretation of the emotions in each of its 12 sections. Learn More

The orchestra was fantastic. I wish there was a little less singing and dancing overall. The pieces by orchestra-only were shortened, so we felt a little short-changed on the music itself. The one other criticism was the host of the show introduced the songs as the orchestra already began playing, so we had no clue what he was saying most of the time.
In The Mood is the 1940s Big Band Theatrical Swing Dance Revue that celebrates America’s Greatest Generation through the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other greats of the 1940s. Featuring a company of 19 on stage, including the In the Mood Singers and Dancers with the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, the show’s music arrangements, costumes and choreography are as authentic as it gets.
About the Ticket Supplier: ArtbeatArtbeat began with a love of music. From studying the piano at the age of five, to learning the acoustic bass and hearing Thelonius Monk as a teenager in New York, that love eventually grew to encompass all the performing arts. And there lay the origin of Artbeat.
Artbeat is a not-for-profit arts presenting organization that was formed by David Shaw in Ashland, Oregon in 1987. In addition to seven tours of 'Ain't Misbehavin',' Artbeat also toured 'A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline' and 'Shirley Valentine,' starring Helen Reddy.
Presenting world music, dance and jazz in 40 West Coast communities, Artbeat is committed to bringing the very best in cultural entertainment to communities that appreciate the arts but may be off the beaten track and under-served.
Artbeat renovated and presented in Oregon's Old Ashland Armory, and raised funds for the Historic Everett Theater restoration. Preserving a community's interest in the arts and it's theatrical facilities is crucial to sustaining a community's culture and vitality.
