The sensual vocals and poetic songwriting of Grammy-winning singer Mary Chapin Carpenter helped propel her 1992 country album Come On Come On to quadruple-platinum status. Since then, her beautiful music has become more socially and politically oriented, while also increasingly bringing in orchestral elements. Her latest album, Songs From the Movie, revisits tunes from her past, setting them to symphonic instrumentation evocative of a stirring film score. Now, you can see her play these compelling reinventions of her own with the National Symphony Orchestra. Learn More

Thoroughly enjoyable! The show was a visual treat and also included both comedy and serious operatic quality with the actress playing Mabel demonstrating impressive vocal range and the actor playing the Major General demonstrating mastery of the lyrics.
Pirates, romance, and trickery abound in Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular operetta, including the tongue-twisting “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General” and classic “Poor Wand’ring One.”
