Sunday, January 15, 2017 | 2:00 PM   
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)

George Nakano Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
The daughter of Ezra Idlet of the Grammy-nominated Trout Fishing in America, Dana Louise is a new songstress astonishing audiences with her vibrant, melodic vocals, adept finger-picking and cool sound. Now touring her debut album, she is joined by the Glorious Birds – Adams Collins (vibraphone and 5-string banjo), Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood (Trout Fishing in America/guitar, percussion and bass). Drawing from jazz and bluegrass, and carrying a contemporary beat, the sound is roots-flung-into-the-future folk. Dana Louise & the Glorious Birds work to leave their audiences glowing with the magic music can bring: genuine human connection.

James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
“A living, breathing, American masterpiece! It is, quite simply, one of the most acclaimed and enduring performances in the history of theater. Fifty years ago, a young actor took the stage in a tiny off-Broadway theatre and introduced the world to a man they would never forget. The actor was Hal Holbrook and the man was Mark Twain. Mark Twain Tonight! was a study in detail and some of the best storytelling I’ve ever heard. It is amazing what effect a well-timed pause can create. Holbrook is a master at engaging an audience. Laughter was loud and plentiful but the highlight of the evening was when Holbrook, as Twain, gave us Huckleberry Finn. Taking on the roles of Huck and Jim in alternate dialogue, Holbrook captured and translated a richness of these characters that gave me chills.” (Rapid City Journal, Rapid City, South Dakota)
