(TBD)  THE COPPER QUEEN Arizona Opera presents a film version of the work that had been intended to premiere live last season. Features Arizona Opera’s first ever all-female director/conductor/designer team, helmed by Crystal Manich, and is being produced in association with Manley Films. It tells the dramatic story of Julia Lowell, a resident of The Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, Arizona in 1910, who was forced to live in captivity in service to the men of the town. A century later, Addison Moore—a stranger to Bisbee—visits Room 315, the site of Julia’s tragic death, where her ghost now famously roams. This riveting tale—told across the generations—is one of human bondage, furtive romance, secret connections, and ultimately—redemption.

Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other?

13  DON'T GO Sojourn Theatre. Gammage Beyond. 7pm   "a three act journey of shared tasks, intimate exchanges, difficult conversations, a staged eruption of an epic story...and a final coming together. Blurring the borders between theatre and civic participation, conflict as a resource in our fleeting and long-term relationships, which, when activated strategically, can provide depth and complexity.In a time when conflict has been weaponized to divide political parties, families, neighbors, and friends, Don’t Go seats us in the fun of the fight. It sparks authentic dialogue through shared tasks: decorating a cake or waltzing, while simultaneously discussing differing opinions about religion, sharing reasons for voting in the last election, or naming their seemingly disparate identities, all in front of an audience.In a time of hyper-polarization, what tools can we imagine, what practice can we host to explore the revolutionary act of staying in community, even, perhaps especially, across difference?"

11-14 FROM TIDWORTH WITH LOVE Southwest Shakespeare at Taliesin West. World premiere of a new play by our very own David Barker, seen as a virtual reading last year.
