Joshua Bell, Béla Fleck and Martha Graham Dance headline the 81st Artist Series.
Boasting a lineup of classical greats, jazz sensations, dance legends and stage hits, CU Presents’ new season promises as much excitement as its star-studded 80th.
Single tickets to the 2017-18 season are on sale beginning Monday, Aug. 14, at 10 a.m. Tickets are available online at cupresents.org, over the phone at 303-492-8008 or in person at the CU Presents Box Office, located at 972 Broadway in Boulder.
This fall and next spring, the Artist Series welcomes world-class acts from all corners of the globe to Macky Auditorium. The Martha Graham Dance Company, a Boulder audience favorite, returns for fresh performances of vintage pieces. Also returning is 16-time Grammy winner Béla Fleck, who shares the stage with funky string quartet Brooklyn Rider. Audiences also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear the incomparable violinist Joshua Bell.
At CU Boulder’s Department of Theatre & Dance, where the local community can glimpse the stars of tomorrow in stage hits, world premieres and intimate experimental performances, the 2017-18 season promises something for everyone. The theatre lineup features Ibsen’s “A Doll House,” Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” and the musical “Hair,” while the dance division hosts a weekend festival of dance cinema screenings and talks and a handful of student-choreographed showcases exploring everything from gender and sexuality to politics.
This season also features five concert pairs by the Takács Quartet and a special performance by CU Boulder’s former graduate quartet-in-residence, the Altius Quartet. The Eklund Opera Program’s season features a highly-anticipated production of the Stephen Sondheim musical “Sweeney Todd,” along with performances of Handel’s “Ariodante” and Lehár’s “The Merry Widow.”
