See Rock City

Rubicon Theatre Company

1006 E. Main Street, Ventura, 93001


Rubicon Theatre Company presents See Rock City by Arlene Hutton, a poignant love story set in 1940’s Appalachia about young newlyweds trying to find their footing in a world on the brink of great change. May (played by Lily Nicksay “Boy Meets World”/”The Client”) is a principal at the local school, and Raleigh (Erik Odom “Twilight: Breaking Dawn”/Sons of the Prophet), is an aspiring writer. The play begins with the couple returning to their home in Corbin, Kentucky after plans to honeymoon in Rock City are derailed. There they grapple with domestic realities and the desire for approval from community and family, especially their very different mothers (played by Clarinda Ross and Sharon Sharth). When victory overseas results in unexpected consequences on the home front, the couple must confront hidden truths and May must consider a difficult sacrifice.

The sequel to last year’s critically acclaimed hit Last Train to Nibroc, See Rock City stands alone as a funny, touching and universal portrayal of a devoted young couple grappling with change in the advent of a new, post-war America. Katharine Farmer returns from London to helm See Rock City having directed the first play in the Nibroc Series last season to critical and popular acclaim. The production was nominated for an Ovation Award for “Best Production of a Play, Larger Theatre,” and was a part of Rubicon’s “Best Season” nomination. Farmer was also the recipient of an Indy Award for her direction (collecting her statue on her 22nd birthday). She has since made her West End directing debut with Pig Farm by Greg Kotis. Mike Billings designs sets, lights and projections; Marcy Froehlich is Costume Designer, and Austin Quan is Sound Designer.

Ravel's Bolero

Long Beach Performing Arts Center

300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, 90802


On this evening we explore music of the late Romantic and early Impressionist periods, beginning with Saint-Saens exotic Bacchanale from his opera Samson et Delila, in which Delilah leads a wild and provocative dance to taunt Samson. The piece opens with a beguiling, mid-eastern sounding oboe solo before a steady pulse develops in the orchestra with percussion emphasizing the action. Following that, our virtuoso Principal cellist, Ccilia Tsan, who is known for her powerful and sensitive performances, takes the spotlight in Saint-Saens Cello Concerto #1, composed in 1872. Then Ravels Rapsodie espagnole a reflection of the Spanish musical heritage imparted to Ravel by his Basque mother - opens the second half with a foreboding descending 4-note theme that is carried through, building to a tremendous climax at the end with pulsating Spanish dance rhythms, castanets and tambourine. Also reflective of Ravels love of Spanish music is his Alborada del gracioso (Morning Song of the Jester); a technically challenging, highly spirited and humorous dance that concludes with a grand and glorious racket. The evening culminates with Ravels legendary Bolro, which is built over an unchanging rhythm played on snare drums while melodies rise and fall over the top with ever-changing instrumentation. This piece was made popular in the 1979 film, 10.
