The lineup will feature a remount of the company’s physical adaptation of ‘The Tempest’ with a water-filled set.

ARLINGTON, VA.: Synetic Theater has announced its 2019-20 season, featuring five productions.

The season will start with William Shakespeare’s The Tempest (Sep.t 25-Oct. 20), a re-mount of Syentic Theater’s 2013 production, which sets the high-stakes comedy on a water-filled stage.

Just in time for the holidays will be Snow Queen (Dec. 3-29), adapted by Emily Whitworth from Hans Christian Anderson. This family-friendly show follows a young girl who goes on a quest through the Snow Kingdom to save her best friend. Ryan Sellers will direct.

Next up will be Phantom of the Opera (Feb. 5-March 1, 2020), a physical adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera. The story is about a deformed musician at the Paris Opera House who develops an obsession with a new singer named Christina.

Following will be Life is a Dream (April 22-May 17, 2020), adapted by company member Elena Velasco from the drama La Vida es Sueno. The play is about a King who imprisons his son in a tower after learning of a prophecy that says his son will kill him.

The season will continue with a comedy by Vato Tsikurishvili (June 17-July 12, 2020), which will be announced at a later date.
