Anchorage Opera: La Cambiale di Matrimonio @ Grant Hall Theater / ER Brown Auditorium
Jan 24 @ 8:00 pm – Feb 2 @ 11:00 pm

A Delightful Farce
Composed by Rossini for Venice when he was just 18, The Marriage Proposal lays the foundation for the comic characters and mucial moments that become his more famous opera The Barber of Seville just six years later.

Tobias Mill, a rich English merchant, agrees to marry his daughter Fanny to a Canadian, Mr Slook, whom he has never seen. Fanny, however, has given her heart to the young and impoverished Edward Milfort. The comedy develops when Slook, in colonial garb, with manners to suit, arrives and is confronted by Milfort, who is anxious to prevent the match, and by Mill, who is determined to enforce the contract.

La Cambiale di Matrimonio is presented by Anchorage Opera.

House of YES @ Grant Hall Theater
Feb 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Yes! Produced in Alaska by Alaskans. Synesthesia Artist Collective’s entire Cast, Crew, and Production team is comprised of local, Resident Artists who, in effort to produce barrier breaking works, will present Anchorage with the Alaskan Premiere of ‘The House of Yes’.

Featuring Anchorage Resident Artists. Cast: Chloe Akers, Taran Haynes, Andrea Staats, Lisa Willis, Austin Roach. With Production Team: Alex Albrecht, Claire J Burgandy, Erin Campbell, Cedar Cussins, Christine A Eagleson, Lucy Franklin, Sierra Ileta.
Directed by Scott Heverling.

This limited access production will perform at Alaska Pacific University’s Grant Hall, starting Friday, February 28th, at 8PM continuing March 1, 6, 7, 8, with matinee performances at 3PM on March 2nd and 9th.

THE House Of Yes is a fantastical, new cult classic for our modern times. A dark, comedic theatrical drama about The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assassination, shut in as a Thanksgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving at the head of the storm’s eye are Jackie-O’s twin brother, Marty and his fiancee Lesly. This ruins everything. Marty’s engagement is a threat to the well-being of this family and a greater threat to Jackie-O, who has always wanted her twin brother for herself. Fine by their mother, who’s still lamenting her husband’s desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately yearns for Lesly. The resulting battle becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals’ somewhat-poetic insanity and Lesly’s plebeian pragmatism.

The House of Yes exhibits an exaggerated scenario of a family who are so disconnected from the rest of society, that they live to exist only within the confines of their home. The ramifications are staggering. The House of Yes is a soberingly relevant statement on the direction our society has taken. Entitlement is becoming a new epidemic. Exceptions are more common than adherence. How soon before “Affluenza” runs Rampant?

Synesthesia Artist Collective is a new, leading edge Pre-Professional community organization founded by Alaskan artist, Scott Heverling. Teamed with Syn Arts Collectives Vicente Capala, Rachel Droege, Joyce Mayer, and Lisa Willis in the interest of providing a collaborative and creative environment inclusive of various artistic mediums for Alaska’s resident artists and arts community alike. Syn Arts is venturing to foster edgy, multi-dimensional art that expands Alaska’s mainstream arts scene, further inspiring developmental and experimental productivity.

Mei Mei Evans, Professor of English at Alaska Pacific University, will be reading from her novel “Oil and Water” which focuses on the question of what happens when the American dream collides head-on with a nation’s dependence on fossil fuel. Starting with a star-crossed supertanker, a wayward fishing boat, and a well-known hazard in the Gulf of Alaska, the story presents a region plunged into an oil-slicked crisis. As thousands of miles of shoreline and sea are obliterated, the spill threatens the lives and livelihoods of the coastal community of Selby.
