Join us this month for 16 days of dance, film, opera, theatre, performance poetry, and visual arts at the Lumina Festival of the Arts. Held at Kenan Auditorium from July 12-28, this epic arts fest will feature a dazzling lineup of artists and performers for a celebration of arts in the coastal south. Lumina kicks off on July 12 with an Opening Night Poetry Jam with special guests and will feature poets coming together with film, dance, interactive video art, and more.
Additional highlights include “Footprints,” three modern dance classics by Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor, while performances of Make Trouble’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Timon of Athens” will be happening at the SRO Theater. Opera Wilmington will offer ongoing performances of La Boheme, Puccini’s beloved tale of love and loss, and the UNCW Summer Jazz Workshop Faculty Big Band will perform their award-winning favorites throughout the festival.
