Met Opera: Rise
This is one of the most powerful retellings of Shakespeare's haunting tragedy in history. The piece is stunningly composed by Verdi and stars some of Opera's towering greats such as Renée Fleming as the doomed Desdemona and Johan Botha as the tragic figure Othello.
Wed., July 9, 7pm. Old Mill Stadium 10.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Rise of the Planet of the Apes turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of 2011 with a smart script, pulse pounding action and a wonderful performance by a computer-generated ape. Three years later, the sequel looks even better and the only thing more fun than spending two hours in a theater is spending four! If you watch both films back to back you can then go home and watch Conquest of the Planet of the Apes over and over again until all is right with the world.
