- Old Fire Hall in Whitehorse, YT, Canada
Directed by Brian Fidler
Indeed, this is the same Trey Parker behind Team America, South Park, and the recent, massive Broadway hit The Book of Mormon. Cannibal is loosely based on the true story of Alfred Packer and the sordid details of the trip from Utah to Colorado that left his five fellow travellers dead—and partially eaten. Encouraged by the writer to adapt the show to one’s whim, it was just waiting to get filtered through a Yukon lens! It’s the goofiest musical about cannibalism your eyes and ears will ever “feast” upon!

More than a decade after his unforgettable Yukon debut appearances at Dawson City Music Festival and the Guild Hall, Guy Davis returns. The son of celebrated African-American New York actors, Guy Davis pursued the blues. The roots of his blues are as diverse as the music itself. He's a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman.

Metropolitan Opera in HD
Dinner and Opera SoiréeSingle Tickets $22, Dinner Tickets* $35Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticanaand Canio in Pagliacci. Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
