Who’s on the cover of our annual arts season preview section?

The model is Hardin Minor, a longtime performing artist from Charlotte who is part of the mime company Omimeo.

With the masks, he is representing war, joy and magic, which suggest themes in three big upcoming shows: the Broadway touring production of “War Horse,” Mozart’s opera “Magic Flute” and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy from his Ninth Symphony.
