James Armstrong Theatre [Torrance Cultural Arts Center] 3330 Civic Center Drive
One of opera's most vivid and compelling characters, a vengeful court jester, desperately tries to protect his daughter from disaster in this heart-wrenching tragedy. The first of two world-class casts led by Music Director Nicola Luisotti stars as Zeljko Lucic, "whose vocal artistry is exceptional" (The New York Times); Aleksandra Kuzak, "a superstar in the making" (The Guardian, London); and as the lecherous Duke, Francesco Demuro, "whose open, bright, superbly focused tone was reminiscent of Pavarotti" (Opera News). Aleksandra Kurzak "was nothing short of remarkable." (San Francisco Chronicle)

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.
