Orcas Center brings the world’s best performers to Center Stage in their On-Screen Offerings from The Metropolitan Opera, Bolshoi Ballet, and National Theatre Live. Join us for these great events coming up in November:

Saturday, November 6 at 1pm: Cyrano de Bergerac from NT Live. Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Saturday, November 13 at 1pm: Follies from NT Live. There’s a party on the stage of the Weismann Theatre. Tomorrow the iconic building will be demolished. Thirty years after their final performance, the Follies girls gather to have a few drinks, sing a few songs and lie about themselves. Follies includes such classic songs as Broadway Baby, I’m Still Here, and Losing My Mind.

Sunday, November 21 at 1pm: Fire Shut Up in My Bones from The Met. Fire Shut Up in My Bones is The Met’s first performance of a black composer, Terrance Blanchard, and tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma. This adaptation of Charles M. Blow’s moving memoir, was praised by The New York Times as “bold and affecting” and “subtly powerful.”

Saturday, November 27 at 1pm: Spartacus from The Bolshoi Ballet. In Imperial Rome led by Crassus, Spartacus and his wife Phrygia are reduced to slavery and are separated by slave dealers. His love for her and his desire for freedom lead him to revolt against the Roman army with the help of the other captives. But the treacherous Aegina, who seeks to conquer Crassus and gain power, will get in the way of Spartacus’s plan.
