While her mother, Edna, is afraid that she will be made fun of because of her looks her father, Wilber, encourages her. Tracy makes it onto the show and becomes the idol of many teenagers. She uses her newfound fame to champion the cause of racial integration.

Opera by Francesco Cavalli

In the 17th Century, the Venetian composer Francesco Cavalli composed operas in which intense emotions, bawdiness, farce, love and hate, reason and madness coalesced with magic and reality. Therefore his works are chock-a-block reflections of life’s quirks. Rosinda, being a case in point: two infatuated sorceresses fight with all the means at their disposal over the same man. Magic potions, giants, frenzy, witches, dwarfs––all these elements come into play and increasingly create emotional entanglements much to the amusement of the audience.

Opera by Richard Strauss

The King of the Spirit Realm’s daughter has married the mortal Emperor. For the relationship to endure, she has to become a real woman and bear children. But this is impossible for the empress from another realm, symbolized by her not having a shadow. However, a dyer’s wife is prepared to sacrifice her shadow and her unborn children and give them to the Empress. But can she accept such a sacrifice?

Richard Strauss and his congenial librettist, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, tuned this fairytale plot into one of the most multifaceted, ecstatic and poignant operas of the earl y 20th Century.

Dance theatre by Mei Hong Lin, Music by Alexander Zemlinsky

The King of the Sea’s daughter falls in love with an earthly prince and enters the human world to look for him, although she is in great pain with every step she takes. In 1902 himself in the throes of unrequited unconditional love, Austrian composer Alexander von Zemlinsky found encouragement and inspiration in Hans Christian Andersen’s The little Mermaid for his symphonic poem. He cleverly employed heartrending music to express the psychological process of losing a beloved person, rejection and suffering.
