The Intergalactic Nemesis

Book One: Target Earth

Thursday, March 12, 2015
7:30 PM
Nightingale Concert Hall

The idea — simple scripts, a couple actors, some crazy noises — all started in a coffee shop in Austin, Texas. It’s now a lot bigger than that: A sound-effects genius, an emotion-wielding keyboardist, three actors voicing tons of wacky characters, and 1,200 vintage-cool illustrations projected over the stage, all telling the story like a 1930s radio play with decidedly 21st-century spins. The plot? A Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter, an evil hypnotist, a time-traveling librarian, alien sludge monsters, outrageous overacting, horrific accents, and sounds for EVERYTHING. “... a big-hearted homage to old-time radio drama... melds the retro appeal of radio serials with the cutting-edge cool of the graphic novel.” ~ The Wall Street Journal

The seventh of nine performances of the Argenta Concert Series welcomes to Reno one of the leading American string quartets, the Miro Quartet. In an exciting two-night event (Thursday and Friday) the quartet will present two performances with different yet complementary programs. The first night, on Thursday April 16th, will see an evening dedicated to the craft of Franz Schubert and in particular to his two greatest string quartets, which are considered among the very greatest forays into the genre by any composer. The String Quartet in G major and the String Quartet in D minor ‘Death and the Maiden’ hold a very special place in the pantheon of Western music, and it is an incredible rarity for audiences and challenge for performers to hear them both side by side. The Miro Quartet is among the most distinguished ensembles today, performing on the most prestigious concert stages around the world.
