Louisiana's coastal marshes and wetlands cover 9,000 square miles, stretching 300 miles from east to west, and reaching 30 miles inland. Each year, hurricanes and other natural and man-made forces claim between 20 to 25 square miles of vulnerable coastline. Many believe these numbers constitute a national emergency, one which requires immediate scientific and public consensus to "turn the tide" on the problem.

History, hope, shared humanity, and the healing power of art are the lessons Omaha students experience as they encounter the story of Terezin, a Nazi concentration in Czechoslovakia. During World War Two, Terezin was used to imprison and murder many of Europe’s musicians, composers, and artists. Remembered Voices follows the Omaha students as they encounter Terezin by participating in a series of art and music infused workshops. The documentary weaves together history, archival film and Terezin survivor interviews. Remembered Voices is a compelling look at how voices from the past transform us today.

“Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty”

Choreographer Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty marks the choreographer’s return to the music of Tchaikovsky to complete his acclaimed reinterpretations of the composer’s trio of masterworks that began in 1992 with Nutcracker! and followed in 1995 with Swan Lake. This timeless fairy tale about a princess cursed to sleep for a hundred years was adapted into a ballet by Tchaikovsky and choreographer Marius Petipa in 1890. In a highly theatrical production, Bourne takes this date as his starting point, setting the story at the height of the fin de siècle epoch when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination. As the heroine Aurora matures into a young woman, the period shifts to the confines of the Edwardian era. Decades later, awakening from her century-long slumber, Aurora finds herself in the modern day — a world she finds more mysterious and wonderful than any fairy tale. Bourne’s haunting new scenario is a romance for all ages.
