The Muses Project Opera Cabaret: Broken Standards

Presented by Texarkana Regional Arts & Humanities Council

“Broken Standards” is presented by The Muses Classical Troupe lead by internationally touring and resident professional vocalists, dancers, and instrumentalists, sharing arrangements of Early Opera, Art Song, Oratorio, and Sacred selections by Handel, Purcell, and Bach alongside American Big Band and Jazz Standards by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and Kurt Weill. Music from these distinct time periods represents the origin of Opera and the cradle of Jazz, reflecting a belief in vocal music as a potent tool to evoke emotion from its listeners, and transport singer and audience alike to a higher level of awareness, transcendence, and absorption in the experience.

Seussical

Hosted by the Silvermoon Children's Theatre

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks." Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Seussical is fun for the whole family!
