2015 season

Desire. Passion. Corruption.

Thérèse Raquin by Tobias Picker
Marilyn Forever by Gavin Bryars
Hydrogen Jukebox by Philip Glass

I know you have been waiting for this! And here it is, our 2015 season for you! This season is a passionate exploration of different types of love - love of flesh, love of spirit, and love of country - in a season that reflects on the delicate nature of desire and its vulnerability to corruption.

We open with Tobias Picker's haunting, scandalous tale of reckless lovers who become victims of desire. Then, one of the most desired women of all time, Marilyn Monroe, takes the stage in an intimate portrait of one of Hollywood's brightest stars. Finally, American artists Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg collaborate on a kaleidoscopic view of American culture for our Outer Limits production.
