Theater: "The Tempest"
The Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater presents a unique version of this Shakespearean classic — a performance by both actors and marionettes. Directed by theater program faculty member Tracy Bersley, the play is the senior project of student Lily Akerman '13. Featuring an all-student cast with puppets created by senior visual arts student Samantha Ritter '13, "The Tempest" looks to be an exciting new approach to this age-old story. Pick up tickets for an evening of Shakespeare unlike any other.

Concert: “Spanisches Liederbuch”
Got the back-to-school blues? Lose yourself in the “religious fervor” and “sexual ecstasy” of Angelika Kirchschlager and Ian Bostridge’s performance. Hugo Wolf’s “Spanisches Liederbuch” is based on 16th- and 17th-century Spanish poems, and the music is filled with passion and angst, two emotions to which Princeton students can relate. Wolf is considered one of the best 19th-century composers and this particular production will be performed at only two other venues. Professor Susan Youens of the University of Notre Dame will give a pre-concert talk open to all ticket holders.
