The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Gonzaga University’s Department of Theater and Dance presents Rupert Jones’ musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The musical explores the various possible endings of Charles Dickens’ final, unfinished whodunit. Drawing on all the bells and whistles inherent to the stage, Drood is an irreverent celebration of all things theatre – as the actors and audience alike conspire to solve the caper.A witty and comedic who-dun-it mystery, the show celebrates theater in its broadest forms with large musical numbers, spectacular visual imagery, and the audience’s participation in the ending when Edwin Drood’s murderer is voted upon, resulting in a new and exciting performance each night.

Spokane Symphony Masterworks 3: Points North

Grammy-nominated composer Anna Clyne has taken the music world by storm in the last decade. She studied at the University of Edinburgh at the same time as our music director, and her work from 2019, DANCE, a cello concerto in all but name, is full of deep expression and melodic invention. We open our exploration of the North with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, written after a trip to the Scottish Highlands, and include a lost gem by Nikolai Tcherepnin. Every Sibelius symphony ends remarkably, but the ending of his Fifth symphony is one of the most astonishing by any composer—a flight of swans gives way to crashing chords surrounded by silence.
