Mackey Arena
Anna in the Tropics, Purdue Theatre
Wednesday, November 20 – 7:30 pm
Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts
By Nilo Cruz Directed by Gordon McCall in the Carole and Gordon Mallett Theatre A poignant and poetic story set in Florida in 1929 in a Cuban–American cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand and “lectors” (readers) are employed to educate and entertain the workers. When a new lector arrives and begins to read aloud from Anna Karenina, he unwittingly becomes a dynamic catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics and the American dream prove a volatile combination. Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Wednesday, November 20 – 7:30 pm
St. Thomas Aquinas, 535 W State St, West Lafayette, IN 47906
Choral performance is a binding thread in Estonia’s tapestry of cultural and political history. Laulupidu—an amateur choral event in Tallinn, Estonia, that draws more than 25,000 singers—had its formative roots in Estonia’s 19th-century crusade toward self-government. More than a century later, the Singing Revolution’s choral protests helped the nation regain independence from the Soviet Union. Founded in 1981 by Tõnu Kaljuste and now conducted by Daniel Reuss, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is a premier ensemble formed from this proud tradition. More Information
