The thrill of INTERNATIONAL
Come experience the wonder of Coastal Virginia; we have
made it easy for you to plan your group trip. There are worlds to explore in
the performances of the 2014 Virginia Arts Festival: music that conjures
indelible images of times past and places never before seen; dance that evokes
eras and emotions; theater that carries us to medieval forests and god-shrouded
back streets of Victorian London. As you watch and listen to the world premiere
performance of the Festival-commissioned new score for the epic 1925 film
Ben-Hur, created by The Police drummer and composer Stewart Copeland, you’ll
feel the sand fly beneath the furious wheels of the chariots. In Jasmine Guy’s
theatrical marvel Raisin’ Cane, and Dance Theatre of Harlem’s’ triumphant
return, you’ll step into Saturday-night elegant clubs and lay hands on Sunday’s
sun-warmed brick of churches bursting with spirit. Virginia International
Tattoo will honor our Vietnam Veterans and their families with an astounding
display of patriotism, international cooperation and international music.
You’ll hear towering virtuosos like the Israel Philharmonic, violinist Joshua
Bell, and jazz pianist Chick Corea; celebrate the gifts of our own great
Virginia Symphony Orchestra in Richard Strauss’ heroic Alpine Symphony and the
spectacular Virginia Opera’s staging of Stephen Sondheim’s triumphant Sweeney
Todd. And, you’ll discover brilliant artists from around the world, here in your
own home towns.
So many stories to be shared, memories to be made…please
