FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Welcome to the 2011-12 season of Newman Center Presents! It is a joy to share with you the performances of some of the world’s most talented and entertaining artists.

As audiences we converge from varied places, both physical and metaphorical, on the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. While we may have different backgrounds, we experience entertaining and transporting performances together, and thus we share our common humanity. Our participation in each show is essential to the artistic process; it’s also fun and a journey of discovery. Among the convergences this season are Ballet Hispanico’s celebration of the dynamic aesthetics of the Hispanic diaspora, and AXIS Dance’s vision of an iconoclastically broad community of dancers. The artists in “Abraham, Inc.” combine klezmer, funk and hip-hop music with full respect and complete joy. Amazing female vocalists appear in four shows this season, exploring everything from American songbook standards to Renaissance music, show-stopping Vivaldi arias to Latin jazz. “The Rivalry,” a radio theater drama of the LincolnDouglas debates, reminds us of the long reach of history and the fact that passionately held beliefs can be debated civilly. The extremely moving and unforgettable modern classic “The Sinking of the Titanic” also connects us to lives of the past on the 100th anniversary of that tragic event. We’re very excited this season to be co-presenting performances with the Mizel Arts & Culture Center, Augustana Arts, Friends of Chamber Music, and Historic Denver, Inc. We’re also excited to collaborate with the Iliff School of Theology, the University’s Center for MultiCultural Excellence, and Student Life, among others, in presenting “Two Men Talking” and associated residency activities about school bullying and respect for each individual’s story in the health care environment. These are some of the great experiences awaiting you this season. We hope you will join the journey. The Newman Center hosts nearly 500 performances each year, serving both campus and community. We hope to see you here often, enjoying Newman Center Presents, as well as performances by the faculty and students of the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music and Theatre Department, and dozens of the region’s finest performing arts organizations. Welcome to your performing arts center at the University of Denver. Thank you for coming. Have a great time!

Stephen W. Seifert Executive Director 2011 - 2012 Newman Center Presents
FROM THE CHANCELLOR The University of Denver has been a major focal point of the cultural life of our city for more than 147 years. This is simply a part of who we are as an institution and of our mission to serve the public good. We seek to develop the extraordinary talent resident in our students and faculty members, but also to be a magnet that attracts the greatest musicians, dancers, actors and artists of all kinds from all over the world to our city, and to present their work to its citizens. All of this is done in an effort to enrich our lives and our culture. The Newman Center for the Performing Arts at DU is surely among the finest such venues in America. Through the close to 500 performances presented here each year we seek to entertain, stimulate and inspire members of the DU Community and the public at large. The Newman Center Presents series lies at the center of that effort. Each year it presents a vibrant and eclectic variety of performances, introducing new aspects of music, theater and dance that our community may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience. I hope that you are entertained, stimulated, or inspired (or perhaps all three!) by this eveningâ€™s performance. Thank you so much for visiting the Newman Center and DU.

Presenting Sponsor – Richter Scale Production ANONYMOUS 4 25th ANNIVERSARY TOUR Featuring the new work “the wood & the vine” by David Lang THURSDAY / DECEMBER 8 / 2011 Renowned for their unearthly vocal blend and virtuosic ensemble singing, the four women of Anonymous 4 combine historical scholarship with contemporary performance intuition to create their magical sound.

THE WHIFFENPOOFS OF YALE Opening Act: The DU Idiosingcrasies THURSDAY / JANUARY 5 / 2012 Every year, 14 senior Yale men are selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs, the world’s oldest and best-known collegiate a cappella group. Founded in 1909, the “Whiffs” began as a senior quartet that met for weekly concerts at Mory’s Temple Bar, the famous Yale tavern. Today, the group has become one of Yale’s most celebrated and hallowed traditions. The Whiffenpoofs’ repertoire features a diverse selection of songs, ranging from traditional Yale songs to original compositions to hits from every decade.

Decades later, they meet by chance in New York as Oscar®-nominated filmmaker and psychiatrist and set out to transform the world through their real life storytelling. “Two Men Talking” is a live unscripted performance in which two men weave their life stories into a production that captivates audiences. “Two Men Talking” tries to make sense of growing up white, privileged, Jewish and gay under apartheid in South Africa.

(Continued) “VIVALDI PYROTECHNICS” EUROPA GALANTE – FABIO BIONDI, Conductor VIVICA GENAUX, Mezzo-Soprano SUNDAY / JANUARY 29 / 2012 / 4:00pm Europa Galante was formed in 1990 by Fabio Biondi to draw the international public’s attention to a new and definitive Italian presence in the interpretation of music from the Baroque and Classical eras on original instruments. The dazzling, vocally distinctive, theatrically engaging mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux continues to garner kudos for her compelling performances on the world’s great musical stages. The album on which this show is based, “Vivaldi Pyrotechnics,” was nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Classical Vocal Performance” category for 2011. Sponsored by Newman Center Members CHUCHO VALDÉS & THE AFRO-CUBAN MESSENGERS TUESDAY / FEBRUARY 14 / 2012 Born in Cuba in 1941, Chucho Valdés is “the dean of Latin jazz” and one of Cuba’s most famous pianists, bandleaders, composers and arrangers. Perhaps best known for founding the famous Latin jazz band Irakere in 1972, Chucho’s illustrious career has also garnered him 6 Grammy wins (the latest in 2010) and 16 nominations over the past three decades. Founding Partner – The Denver Post
L.A. THEATRE WORKS “THE RIVALRY” THURSDAY / MARCH 1 / 2012 “The Rivalry” is Norman Corwin’s riveting “radio theater” style setting of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. The play uses actual debate transcripts to bring the clash of two towering figures in American history to life. The tough competition between the future President and the incumbent Senator also eloquently reminds us that political debate can be vigorous without being vicious. “The Rivalry” is a stunning testament to the willingness of two leading political adversaries to put aside their differences and “reach across the aisle” for the good of the country. Founding Partner – Porter Adventist Hospital BOSTON BRASS & IMANI WINDS Co-Presented with Augustana Arts WEDNESDAY / MARCH 21 / 2012 This show is a collaboration between Boston Brass and Imani Winds in their own arrangements of Miles Davis’ and Gil Evans’ legendary studio albums Porgy and Bess (1958) and Sketches of Spain (1960). For almost 25 years Boston Brass has treated audiences to a unique brand of entertainment, exciting classical arrangements, burning jazz standards and the best of the original brass quintet repertoire, which captivates all ages. Imani Winds has carved out a distinct presence in the classical music world with its dynamic playing, culturally poignant programming, genre-blurring collaborations and inspirational outreach programs.

VOLTAGE 2012 “THE SINKING OF THE TITANIC” JACK QUARTET with PAYTON MACDONALD & YOUNG VOICES OF COLORADO Co-Presented with Friends of Chamber Music and Historic Denver, Inc. SUNDAY / APRIL 15 / 2012 On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sank at 2:20am in the Nor th Atlantic. On the 100th anniversar y of the we present Gavin Br yars’ legendar y 1969 The Sinking of the Titanic. In addition, we commissioned composer Payton MacDonald to write a piece in honor of the most famous survivor of the wreck, Denver resident Margaret (“Molly”) Brown, an extraordinary woman whose fame and impor tance in Colorado history extends well beyond her survival of the sinking. This new work is tentatively entitled Lifeboat No. 6. These activities are supported, in part, with funds provided by the Western State Arts Federation (WESTAF), Colorado Creative Industries and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Sponsored by Newman Center Members AXIS DANCE COMPANY SATURDAY / APRIL 28 / 2012 AXIS began in 1987 when founding Artistic Director Thais Mazur had the creative vision to gather a group of dancers with and without disabilities to explore dance and create a performance piece. Since 2001 the Company has collaborated with and commissioned works by such innovators as Bill T. Jones, Stephen Petronio, Joe Goode, David Dorfman and Meredith Monk. AXIS wants its work to challenge traditional definitions of “dance,” “dancer” and “ability,” and to extend dance to
include an entire community that has been too often left out of the performing arts. Funded in part by the National Dance Project of the New England Foundation for the Arts, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Community Connections Fund of the MetLife Foundation. These activities are supported, in part, with funds provided by the Western State Arts Federation (WESTAF), Colorado Creative Industries and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Presenting Sponsor – Gay and Lesbian Fund of Colorado BRAD MEHLDAU TRIO Special Opening Performance: Timothy Andres, piano FRIDAY / MAY 11 / 2012 The acclaimed American jazz pianist Brad Mehldau makes a rare appearance in Denver. With his trio he plays original compositions, jazz standards and jazz arrangements of popular and rock music. Brad is first and foremost an improviser, and greatly cherishes the surprise and wonder that can occur from a spontaneous musical idea that is expressed directly, in real time. But he also has a deep fascination for the formal architecture of music, and it informs everything he plays. The young composer and pianist Timothy (“Timo”) Andres sprang into the scene with his 2010 debut album Shy and Mighty. His classically inspired compositions comfortably cohabit a program with jazz master Mehldau. Sponsored by Newman Center Members

MEET ROBERT AND JUDI NEWMAN With the Newman Center just having celebrated its eighth season, these avid philanthropists smile when they remember becoming involved in the campaign to create an outstanding center for the performing arts at the University of Denver. Daniel L. Ritchie, then chancellor, invited Judi to head the effort when the Center was only a dream. Later the Center was named in the couple’s honor. The couple’s passion for performing arts and education harmoniously intersected with the Newman Center, which is home to exceptional performance venues and DU’s Lamont School of Music and Department of Theatre. “Dan Ritchie has often said that love is the principal ingredient in any successful building,” says Judi. “The Newman Center, as well as the University’s many other new buildings, show just how true that is.” The Newmans appreciate the masterful collaboration between Ritchie and DU Architect Emeritus Cabell Childress, and the expertise of Joseph Docksey, former director of the Lamont School, and William Temple Davis, former chairman of DU’s Department of Theatre. They delight in the superb array of Newman Center Presents’ programs presented by Executive Director Stephen Seifert. Prominent in Denver’s cultural community, the Newmans serve on many boards. Their involvement in DU has deepened with Bob joining the University’s Board of Trustees. He also is a member of the Executive Advisory Board of the Daniels College of Business at DU. Judi sits on the Trustee Service Committee and the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees at the University of Miami. “Each year brings more recognition to this venue and its world-class programs,” says Bob. “Judi and I are delighted to be part of the University of Denver community.”
