Labyrinth of Lies
July 6 at 2pm


Germany 1958. In those years, "Auschwitz" was a word that some people had never heard of, and others wanted to forget as quickly as possible.

Against the will of his immediate superior, young prosecutor Johann Radmann (Alexander Fehling) begins to examine the case of recently identified teacher who was a former Auschwitz gard. Radmann soon lands in a web of repression and denial, but also of idealization. He devotes himself with utmost commitment to his new task and is resolved to find out what really happened.

He oversteps boundaries, falls out with friends, colleagues and allies, and is sucked deeper and deeper into a labyrinth of lies and guilt in his search for the truth. But what he ultimately brings to light will change the country forever.

Best of Enemies

August 31 at 2pm


In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions.

William F. Buckley Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other's political ideologies were dangerous for America.

Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult - their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed, and a new era in public discourse was born.

American pianist Michael Noble is developing an international reputation as an insightful and captivating performer with a repertoire ranging from J.S. Bach to Claude Ledoux. After giving his first recital at the age of six, he has gone on to perform concerts across Europe, Asia, and North America. A prizewinner of numerous competitions including the Grand Prize at the Carmel Music Society Piano Competition (Carmel, CA), Gold Medal at
the Crescendo Music Awards (Tulsa, OK), and two-time laureate of the Chopin International Competition of the 1000 Islands, Michael has been called “a pianist to remember” by Het Nieuwsblad (Belgium) and his playing has been hailed as “poetic” ( Het Nieuwsblad ), “elegant, stylish, and powerful” by the Peninsula News (California), and “excellent” by the Tulsa World (Oklahoma).

He has performed in such venues as Carnegie's Weill and Zankel halls, the Bulgarian Embassy in Washington, D.C., the Sunset Center (Carmel, CA), and the Royal Dublin Society (Ireland), and has been a guest artist at festivals including the Gentsche Festspiele, the Lake George Music Festival, and the Idyllwild Arts Academy Summer Festival. Additionally, he has been featured in numerous concert series including the Carmel Music Society, Müzewest Concerts, Trinity Concert Series and Quatre Mains among others.

Michael has been featured as soloist with the Tulsa Symphony and the Idyllwild Arts Academy Orchestra and has upcoming performances with the Monterey Symphony. Additionally, he has worked with the most renowned artists in the field including Gary Graffman, Claude Frank, Christopher Elton, John O'Conor, Ursula Oppens, John Perry, Boris Berman, Hung-Kuan Chen, Robert McDonald and members of the Tokyo and Brentano Quartets.

In 2008, Michael attended the Paris Conservatoire to work with Nicholas Angelich. Following this, he obtained his Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance and Bachelor of Arts in English Literature cum laude from the Eastman School of Music and University of Rochester respectively where he was a student of Nelita True. He received his Master of Music and Master of Musical Arts at the Yale School of Music where he worked with Peter Frankl and Melvin Chen and is now a candidate for the Doctor of Musical Arts there.

Michael recently completed a one-year residency in Ghent, Belgium as a fellow of the Belgian American Educational Foundation where he focused on contemporary music with political connotations under the guidance of Daan Vandewalle. In addition to his activities as a performer, Michael is the co-founder and director of the Brussels-based ‘Music of Changes,’ a concert series that presents dynamic programs juxtaposing contemporary music with that of the past.

During the past season, Michael performed throughout Western Europe, Thailand and the United States, and the current season will see him concertizing as soloist and with harpist Chelsea Lane - as part of Duo Aeterna - throughout Western Europe and the United States.
