This Week's Events


Girls' Weekend      10/19/2014 12:00:00 AM
831 42nd St, Des Moines
The ladies tell everyone they're going to Dot's weekend cabin for book club, but it becomes clear after the third case of wine comes through the door there will be more stewing than reviewing. As bottles tip up, secrets spill out and men sneak in. Girls' Weekend is a lightning-quick farce written by local theatre veteran, Karen Schaeffer. The script was a hit in the 2013-14 play reading season, and the Playhouse is excited to bring the story to life on the stage. Wednesday-Saturday shows are at 7:30 PM. Sunday shows are at 2:00 PM.

221 Walnut Street, Des Moines
On the heels of the release of her Four Seasons: The Vivaldi Album, Avery Fisher Career Grant-winner Anne Akiko Meyers joins the Orchestra in Vivaldi’s famous and fiery Four Seasons. She has been called a “master violinist” and “passionate performer” and her sound has been described as “a tone so pure that it emerges just a few times in a generation.” Experience it live as Joseph Giunta conducts Meyers and the Orchestra through the Seasons: storms rumble and roar in Summer, and glittering pizzicato notes in the highest registers depict Winter’s icy snow. Also on the program is Verdi’s thrilling Overture to La forza del destino. The all-Italian program concludes with a different image of nature – the mighty Pines of Rome – with the sonic grandeur and orchestral force of your Des Moines Symphony raising the roof at the Civic Center! Kemin Industries, Inc. is the Guest Artist Sponsor for this program. Tickets are $15-$55 for adults, and $7.50-$27.50 for students. For more information, please visit dmsymphony.org or call 1.800.745.3000.
