October 22-25, 2015

Sophocles' desolate tale of determination over duty transfers over to Washington's Kennedy Center this October, following its North American premiere at Brooklyn's BAM Theatre. Starring Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, The Clouds of Sils Marie), this new translation by Canadian poet Anne Carson is brought to the stage by avant garde Belgian director Ivo Van Hove.

Bright Star

December 2, 2015-January 10, 2016

Springing from their Grammy Award winning collaboration on their record 'Love Has Come For You', Bright Star is a new American musical, exploring the turmoil of families, their secrets and love, against the background of the South in renaissance, as the landscape and deeply held beliefs began to change. With 25 new songs, it promises to be a moving and wide reaching story, set to a bluegrass and folk infused score.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder

January 13-30, 2016

The darling of the 2014 Tony Awards, A Gentleman's Guide earned an eye-watering ten nominations and won four, including Best Musical and Best Book. This mad-cap celebration of silliness is now heading out to conquer the rest of America!

Washington National Opera: Lost in the Stars

February 12-20, 2016

Based on the 1948 novel by Alan Paton, Kurt Weill began work on Lost in the Stars, his final stage work, just a few months after publication, eager to translate Paton's powerful image of life in aparthied South Africa into an equally emotional musical tragedy.

The Bridges of Madison County

June 28-July 17, 2016

Duty and desire collide in this unashamedly romantic musical, based on the treasured novel by Robert James Waller. The story follows the romance between Francesca, an Italian-American housewife unsure of herself, stuck on a remote farm in Iowa, and photographer Robert, who becomes lost whilst shooting the county's bridges and stumbles into her home. And so begins a tantalizing tale of love, loss and acceptance that will melt your heart.
