Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances.

CCM’s Moveable Feast Returns on Jan. 17, 2020

Experience the unparalleled magic of CCM Village during one dazzling evening of live entertainment and by-the-bite cuisine on Jan. 17, 2020. Tickets are on sale now.

Cincinnati’s premier fundraiser returns in early 2020 when CCM presents Moveable Feast. Help fuel the future of the arts and light the way for CCM students at this unique benefit event on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020.

Hosted by CCMpower — a dedicated volunteer group comprised of fans, advocates and alumni — Moveable Feast showcases students and faculty members in an evening of world-class live entertainment. For one night only, Cincinnati audiences can experience CCM’s student stars of tomorrow in a variety of performances that showcase the full spectrum of the performing and media arts. The funds raised by the event enable CCMpower to fuel the future of the arts by awarding student scholarships and grants.

Attendees roam through the expansive CCM Village, socializing and enjoying dinner-by-the-bite provided by Jeff Thomas Catering while creating their own menu of artistic experiences. Guests plan their own schedule of 20-minute samplings of student and faculty entertainment, including Jazz, Choral, Musical Theatre, Piano, Opera, Acting, Dance and Orchestra performances, along with tours of CCM’s Electronic Media facilities, Lighting Design labs and other backstage areas.

This year’s Moveable Feast celebrates the contributions of Trish Bryan to CCM and the Cincinnati arts community. Bryan has been instrumental in creating the artistic landscape that is unique to the Queen City. She has served as the President of the Friends of CCM (now CCMpower), Chair of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Board of Trustees, Chair of the Board of Trustees for the American Classical Music Hall of Fame and lent her expertise and time to countless arts organizations. Her leadership and service to the Cincinnati arts community and to CCM has been invaluable and helped to create the thriving artistic community that we enjoy in Cincinnati today.

First Look: CCMONSTAGE ‘The Bartered Bride’

CCMONSTAGE Opera’s production of The Bartered Bride continues tonight, Nov. 22, through Sunday, Nov. 24, at Patricia Corbett Theater. This romantic comedy composed by Bedřich Smetana features a new English translation by CCM faculty member Kathleen Kelly. Get your first look at the opera in the slideshow below.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Part bubbly operetta and part Bohemian folk pageant, CCM sets The Bartered Bride in a Czech community in Texas in 1948. Mařenka is arranged to marry the son of a rich landowner, but she is in love with someone else. Defiantly, Mařenka vows before her parents that she will only accept her love, Jeník, as her husband. As her parents and the matchmaker fight for the arranged marriage, the young lovers fight against tradition in order to be together.

“This story lends itself wonderfully to being shaped from a modern point of view,” says CCM Artist Diploma student Audrey Chait, director of the opera. “This production explores what it means to be a young American immigrant, preserving the traditions of the old country while embracing a new way of life.”

CCM’s production is conducted by guest artist and CCM alumnus Levi Hammer and features a new English singing libretto by CCM Opera faculty member Kathleen Kelly. The opera’s original libretto is by Karel Sabina. The process of translation and adaptation started between Kelly and Chait in the summer. In order to make the translation more authentic to the immigrant experience, some text is left in the original Czech.

“In the spirit of realism, the folk songs are sung as-is, as are moments when characters do not want to filter their most urgent thoughts through a second language,” Chait adds.

Movers and Makers magazine named CCM’s production of The Bartered Bride a “must see” event of Cincinnati’s music and opera of the fall season. Read more about this season’s Opera Series in The News Record.

The 2019-20 CCMONSTAGE Opera Series presents The Bartered Bride on Nov. 22-24, 2019, at Patricia Corbett Theater. Tickets are on sale now through the CCM Box Office; student discounts are available.

CCM Jazz and Musical Theatre present Duke Ellington’s “Nutcracker Suite” Nov. 24

CCM presents a special seasonal treat at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019, as CCMONSTAGE Jazz and Musical Theatre unite to present Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite in Corbett Auditorium.

One of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century, Duke Ellington recorded The Nutcracker Suite for the Columbia record label in 1960. The album featured jazz interpretations of well-known melodies by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, arranged by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn.

Under the musical direction of Scott Belck, dancers from CCM’s Musical Theatre program will join the Jazz Orchestra to transform The Nutcracker Suite’s romantic orchestrations into jumping jazz melodies, including “Toot Toot Tootie Toot (Dance of the Reed-Pipes),” “Peanut Brittle Brigade” and “Sugar Rum Cherry (Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy).” Featuring choreography by Diane Lala, a classical ballet becomes cool-cat jazz, infused with Vegas glitz, Hollywood glamour and a little New York razzmatazz.

Tickets to the Duke Ellington Nutcracker Suite concert can be purchased online through CCM’s e-box office, over the phone at 513-556-4183 or in person at the CCM Box Office in the atrium of UC’s Corbett Center for the Performing Arts.

The demand is high for CCMONSTAGE‘s 2019-20 musical theatre productions. After experiencing the college’s production of 42nd Street last week, ArtsWave dubbed CCM as “the jewel in the Queen City’s crown.” The League of Cincinnati Theatres beckoned audiences to “come see the future of Broadway at CCM and get a first look at the next generation headed to the Great White Way.”

After The Rocky Horror Show closes, you only have one more chance to see CCM’s musical theatre stars in action during the 2019-20 performance season. The next big musical presented by CCM is The Secret Garden, which runs March 5-8, 2020 in Corbett Auditorium. Tickets for CCM’s spring production of Bright Star (April 2-5, 2020) are currently booked up!
