Language and Identity: The Latino Mask. A symposium about language in theatre and its impact on an audience.

Focusing on language itself, we explore the idea of bilingualism on-stage. This project also attempts to examine how specific cultural idioms in a Spanish-language play can be conveyed to an English-speaking audience, holding true to the intended meaning of a play as presented in its original language.

Elton John and Tim Rice's AIDA

The York College Theatre and the Milton G. Bassin Performing Arts Center present the musical "AIDA". Featuring songs by the team behind THE LION KING and winner of four Tony Awards, AIDA is set in ancient Egypt and tells the story of an enslaved Nubian princess, her conflicted Egyptian captor, and a forbidden love that rocks the ancient world to its core. Part Broadway musical, part dance spectacular and part rock concert, AIDA is an epic tale about the power and timelessness of love.
