The annual Living Gallery features re-creations of magnificent artwork by the Old Masters with live models. This year BJU combines the tradition of the Living Gallery with the Christmas celebration Lessons and Carols. Beautiful music and art are elegantly woven together with Scripture to celebrate the amazing story of the incarnation—God with us.
Mar. 8, 10 and 12
Rossini’s light comedy draws its storyline from the familiar Cinderella fairy tale. The traditional evil stepmother is replaced with a greedy and ambitious stepfather. Instead of glass slippers there is a pair of matching bracelets. Throw in two conniving stepsisters, a handsome prince and one hilarious valet—and you have an evening of musical enjoyment.
This human portrait, both enigmatic and powerful, has intrigued readers and audiences for hundreds of years. Watch one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies in a unique production by the University’s Classic Players.
