From the Executive Director Dear Friend,

I am proud to present the new 2006-2007 UApresents season, which has been a true labor of love involving many different people including the UApresents staff, members of our community-based Advisory Board and faculty from the UA campus. The result is a season I think you will find rich and exciting; a true adventure into the world of the performing arts. We have focused on the genres of performing arts that have made UApresents great — the best classical orchestras and artists, iconic jazz stars, high profile dance companies and artists from all corners of the world including music with Latin roots so reflective of our rich Tucson culture. This year you will see performances ranging from the return of the popular Cirque Dreams with its new production “Jungle Fantasy,” to the innovative East Village Opera Company as well as the opportunity to see stars of legendary Broadway shows. Because the reaction to our inaugural “UApresents @ the Fox” series was so positive, this season we will present more artists befitting the intimate setting of this beautiful theatre. We are also introducing our “Young Audiences” series, providing opportunities for families to share an adventure of their own. Also this year, in addition to our outstanding subscription packages, we are offering a greater range of ticket prices so that many more in our community may enjoy this incredible wealth of entertainment possibilities. I look forward to welcoming new faces and old friends as we embark on this wonderful season together. There is a richness of life and attitude, of sorrow and joy, sound and music contained in these pages. How can you resist the adventure?

Natalie Bohnet, Executive Director, UApresents

From the Provost

With every new season, UApresents advances The University of Arizona’s commitment to learning and an appreciation of the performing arts. One of our goals in higher education is to encourage appreciation and understanding of other cultures. UApresents helps to foster global values and understandings by making the performing arts accessible to all members of our community. Among its many dimensions, UApresents’ outreach serves Southern Arizona schools with matinees for children and in-services for K-12 teachers including the annual Fine Arts Summer Institute. UApresents also provides Master Classes with visiting artists for College of Fine Arts students as well as a variety of opportunities for other students. This new season presents an even greater opportunity to enjoy a connoisseur’s menu of events that speak to the rich diversity of our community and world. I share great pride in the University of Arizona’s role in sponsoring many of the world’s finest performing artists, visiting from five continents. I invite you to explore this superb season.
