Juilliard Drama presents Black Snow, Keith Reddin's dramatization of the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov and directed by Dustin Wills.Struggling writer Sergei Maxudov becomes the surprise envy of the Moscow literary elite when his play is chosen to be produced by the Independent Theatre. However, his hopes of a glorious life in the theatre are soon dashed as he confronts Soviet bureaucracy, artistic disputes, and a revered artistic director of supposed mythic powers. The play and the darkly satiric novel on which it's based are inspired by Bulgakov's own experiences with the Moscow Art Theatre and its renowned director, Konstantin Stanislavski, at the onset of Stalinist repression in the 1920's.

Music in Twelve Parts, written by Philip Glass between 1971 and 1974, is a deliberate, encyclopedic compendium of some techniques of repetition the composer had been evolving since the mid 1960s. It holds an important place in Glass's repertory not only from a historical vantage point (as the longest and most ambitious concert piece for The Philip Glass Ensemble) but from a purely aesthetic standard as well, because Music in Twelve Parts is both a massive theoretical exercise and a deeply engrossing work of art.
