This Week in Fredericton (Nov. 22-28)

Category: community 144

We get an early jump on shows this week with Atlantic Ballet Theatre Company at the Playhouse Tuesday followed by album release shows from Jaclyn Reinhart and Papal Visit, PLUS lots of holiday events and music performances.

Elm City String Quartet plays Schubert & Prokofiev at Christ Church Cathedral this Friday.


Atlantic Ballet Theatre Company presents Amadeus at The Playhouse. Amadeus, like the music which inspired its choreographer, is finely balanced and beautifully paced. It touches on some of Igor Dobrovolskiy’s recurring themes: isolation, envy, and the solitary life of the outsider. Mr. Dobrovolskiy stretches out time and motion as if carefully measuring the moments left in Mozart’s short life. Narrative and choreography present a subtle dialectic of endless movement which begins with the relentless tick, tick, tick of the metronome and ends with the soundless rushing of the sands of time. 7:30 p.m.


Jaclyn Reinhart Album Release w/Keegan & The Vandalorians at Grimross Brewing Co. Jaclyn Reinhart holds nothing back with roots-pop/rock style that blends her influences and love of Americana icons.
