Cap­stone Pro­duc­tions

Where Charleston - - Where Now -

If you’re vis­it­ing Charleston dur­ing the three-week run of the Spo­leto Per­form­ing Arts Fes­ti­val, you’ll want to add at least one pro­duc­tion to your must- do list.


The cham­ber mu­sic con­certs are a good in­tro­duc­tion to the Spo­leto ex­pe­ri­ence and a fa­vorite of those who re­turn to the fes­ti­val year af­ter year. Per­for­mances are 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily. The skilled group of mu­si­cians have a good time play­ing to­gether, and the en­ergy is con­ta­gious. The con­certs are at the Dock Street The­atre, the first build­ing in the coun­try to be built ex­clu­sively for the­atri­cal per­for­mances.


Take in a pro­duc­tion at the Gail­lard Cen­ter, which is host­ing per­for­mances for the se­cond time since a $142 mil­lion re­con­struc­tion of the 1,800-seat hall. Choices in­clude Spo­leto’s cap­stone pro­duc­tion, Tchaikovsky opera “Eu­gene One­gin”; Maria Pages Com­pany’s pro­duc­tion of “Yo, Car­men”; and Rhi­an­non Gid­dens, who brings her own per­spec­tive to songs from Amer­i­can roots.
