Emens Auditorium

Organized in 1979, the Shanghai Ballet is one of the world’s predominant ballet companies, bringing the unique glamour of Chinese dance to the international stage. The Shanghai Ballet is active in cooperation and artistic exchange with artists and companies both at home and abroad. In the words of a critic, “The Shanghai Ballet is as elegant as the delicate porcelain imported from China.”

Adults: $30


Jan. 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Emens Auditorium

It’s 1945. As America’s soldiers come home to ticker-tape parades and overjoyed families, Private First Class Donny Novitski, singer and songwriter, struggles to rebuild the life he left behind. BANDSTAND is “both a peppy celebration of can-do spirit and a more somber exploration of what American servicemen experienced when they marched home from World War II. It’s a great argument for why theater can sometimes tell a story more boldly and more viscerally” (The New York Times). “The show defies you not to be moved” (Time Out New York).

Tickets:
Adults: $32-$52
Youth: $16-$21
Students: Free (in advance) / $10 (at the door)
