Ozark folklorist Willi Carlisle and Artist's Laboratory  Theatre director/producer Joseph Fletcher explore the unsung past of folk in a vaudeville-cabaret-operetta, There Ain't No More: Death of a Folksinger.

This one-man show, starring Carlisle, centers around what he describes as "a very white, very male folksinger trying to navigate--politically and personally--the fraught territories of a life in folk song."

In this episode, we immerse ourselves in the element of water, tour the dreams of the creative mind, and hear the planets by piano.

Moving through the cosmos to the sounds of Gustav Holst's "The Planets," as played by Len Vorster and Robert Chamberlain on two pianos, we fall back to Earth to explore an imagination unfettered by wakefulness in Jennifer Higdon's composition "Scenes from the Poet's Dreams."

The words orchestra and overture conjure sounds and images of grandeur and bombast, but what if the accumulated skill of an orchestra could be used for just the opposite: intimacy and contemplation?

Experience a zoological fantasy come to life in a collaboration between the Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra and NWA Ballet Theatre when they present Camille Saint-Saëns' "Carnival of the Animals" at the Arend Arts Center in Bentonville this Saturday, April 15, at the Arend Arts Center in Bentonville.
