Dr. Quentin Schultze is a communication professor, author, speaker, mentor, and master teacher who proclaims the good news that virtuous communication can overcome many of our personal and social problems.

A Doll’s House

Mar 2, 2017 | 7:30 PM — 9:00 PM | Heritage Center – Babka Black Box

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th-century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time,[2] as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint.

Chris Botti with the Columbus Symphony

Apr 1, 2017 | 7:30 PM | Heritage Center – John and Alice Butler Hall

Rossini’s version of this classic-fairy tale is a vocal and comedic romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and Don Magnifico, the girl’s father, rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming and a glass slipper prove, beyond all question, that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. When combined with hilarious characters and situations set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its most exhilarating and often frenzied best!
