The Silkroad Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma

8/10/2018 - 08:15pm

Venue: Amphitheater

Preferred Seating for this performance is sold out.


Yo-Yo Ma's multifaceted career is testament to his continual search for new ways to communicate with audiences, and to his personal desire for artistic growth and renewal. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, coming together with colleagues for chamber music, or exploring cultures and musical forms outside the Western classical tradition, Mr. Ma strives to find connections that stimulate the imagination. Expanding upon this interest, in 1998, Mr. Ma established Silkroad, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create meaningful change at the intersections of the arts, education and business. Under his artistic direction, The Silkroad Ensemble has developed new music, cultural partnerships, education programs and cross-disciplinary collaborations. This stunning ensemble has now grown into its own artistic leadership and collaborates this evening with its founder, cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Chautauqua Theater Company: Into the Breeches!
by George Brant

8/11/2018 - 8/17/2018

Venue: Bratton Theater

Written by George Brant, Directed by Laura Kepley
Providence, 1942. With the men of the Oberon Play House away at war, Maggie (the Artistic Director's wife) decides to take charge and direct an all-female production of Henry V. Written by award winning playwright George Brant (Grounded, 2012 Smith Prize) and directed by Cleveland Play House Artistic Director Laura Kepley, Into the Breeches follows a passionate, if amateur, group of theater artists looking at Shakespeare's valiant warriors in a new light. This hilarious and moving backstage comedy explores how theater can bring a community together in hard times and perhaps even expand our idea of what community is.

An instrument of passion. A shocking secret. An extraordinary journey.

Academy Award-winning director François Girard's 1998 film, The Red Violin, celebrates its 20th anniversary with violinist Joshua Bell performing live with orchestras on a select anniversary tour. The Red Violin follows the intricate history of an antique violin from its creation in 1681 Cremona, Italy, to an auction house in modern-day Montreal where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (Samuel L. Jackson). Follow the violin's journey as it travels through five different countries over the course of four centuries, mysteriously impacting all who play it. Performed live with Joshua Bell and the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, this evening is ultimately about passion, love, art and renewal.
