Torrance Art Museum 3320 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA
Cardboard – that ubiquitous material that surrounds us, linking our desires via the packaging of consumer goods, keeping them safe, quenching our thirst for things – is a cheap and throwaway material rarely paid any attention. But some artists grasp the amazing malleability of it – its strength, its ability to be transformed. These 13 artists find ways to play with the pulped wood to invent new narratives. From replicating realistically the objects around us, to exploring structures, to humorously delighting us, they reconstruct the basic elements into fantastical pulped fictions.

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
The grandest of grand operas, and a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. A bitter love triangle plays itself out against a backdrop of war and cultural oppression in this compelling tale of conflicting loyalties and forbidden passion. As Aida, soprano Micaela Carosi’s “voice wasn’t only luminous: she was alive in the role…every fear, frustration, and outburst of love registered in her voice, face, body”. (San Jose Mercury News) Tenor Marcello Giordani plays Radames, “mustering a ringing sound and suitably ardent phrasing” in the opera’s climax. (San Francisco Chronicle) “Mezzo Soprano Dolora Zajick delivered a powerhouse performance as Amneris, cloaking her unstoppable dramatic fury in plush and impeccably controlled tones.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
