Political pundits, Real Housewives and that guy talking loudly next to you on the subway are united by their words in French performance maker Joris Lacoste’s latest foray into the outer limits of human expression. Five virtuoso soloists take to the stage to perform all manner of recorded utterances, putting the emphasis on every hesitation, intonation, and “um.” Celebrating the vast range of human speech—from serious to downright silly—the choir of voices makes promises, threats, decisions, and declarations of love in more than 15 languages. Suite n°2 is created from L’Encyclopédie de la parole, a collection of recorded speech which uses everyday language to investigate our word-obsessed culture. Since 2007, this sprawling project has taken the form of performances, conferences, games, exhibitions, and a website (encyclopediedelaparole.org).

High-Definition Broadcasts from National Theatre, London. Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient, Schindler’s List, Oedipus at the National Theatre) plays Jack Tanner in this exhilarating reinvention of Shaw’s witty, provocative classic. Jack Tanner, celebrated radical thinker and rich bachelor, seems an unlikely choice as guardian to the alluring heiress, Ann. But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary. Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his. A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.

The white-hot drama of an explosive love triangle opens Skylight’s new season. A fiery, tempestuous and deeply religious opera singer is trapped between her lover, an aristocratic painter, and the despicable, corrupt chief of police whose lust for her is impossible to ignore. One of opera’s most lethal and bloody tales, Tosca will keep you at the edge of your seat as it races toward a terrible finale. Music by Giacomo Puccini Libretto by Luigi Illica

Loving Conspiracies, Romantic Revenge Composed by the 16-year-old Mozart, this tale of a tyrannical dictator was one of the young prodigy’s earliest successes. When Silla is denied the heart of the woman he desires, he commits his considerable power and influence to force matters in his favor. He soon discovers that his are not the only plots and conspiracies hidden in the streets of Rome. This saga of deceit, love and intrigue is punctuated by awe-inspiring arias and ravishing melodies.

A prodigy who made his Beijing Concert Hall debut at age 13, Lang Lang became an overnight sensation at age 17 when he stepped in on short notice to perform with the Chicago Symphony. Since that time, he has dazzled audiences with his stunning virtuosity and passion, playing sold-out recitals and concerts in every major city in the world. In 2009, he appeared on Time’s annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, with an influence that has inspired over 40 million Chinese children to learn to play classical piano – a phenomenon termed by the TODAY show as “the Lang Lang effect,” which continues as strong as ever.
