Disney's The Lion King: National Tour

Musical
This acclaimed production is based on the animated Disney movie, but is quite different from the film. From the startling opening, featuring life-sized animal representations taking over the stage to pay tribute to the lion king, this unique theatrical experience tries to make a statement about the cycle of life and death in the wilderness. Thrill to the rhythms of the African Pridelands and an unforgettable score including Elton John and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and "Circle of Life."

Orchestral
Two musical interpretations of the seas remind us how powerful sound can be in creating unforgettable images of the forces of nature.

Debussy's impressionistic La Mer reveals the luminous and atmospheric mysteries of the sea. Elgar's Enigma Variations pays tribute to the composer's wife and friends through a series of variations based on an original theme.

New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players: The Mikado -by- Opera Idaho

Comedy, Opera, Operetta
New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players return to The Morrison Center with their delightfully reimagined The Mikado. The most known and performed Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, The Mikado dates from 1885. Setting the operetta in Japan, an exotic locale far away from Britain, allowed Gilbert to satirize British politics and institutions more freely by disguising them as Japanese. NYGASP’s all-new production brings center stage the history and inspiration for the writing of The Mikado as the real life characters of Victorian London’s D’Oyly Carte Opera Company are combined with the imagined setting of Titipu, influenced by the art and architecture of Japan that had recently reached England in the late 19th century.
