Music Man

The Music Man was the sensation of Broadway when it opened in 1957 and scored six Tony® Awards including Best Musical (beating out West Side Story). Sixty years later it’s still an American institution with its one-of-a-kind score including rousing marches (“Seventy-Six Trombones”), soaring ballads (“Till There Was You”), and Willson’s famous snap-crackle-pop vocal arrangements that could be considered the Broadway precursors to rap. Fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill brings trouble to River City, Iowa when he cons the townspeople into buying instruments for an imaginary band – but his plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when his heart is stolen by the town librarian.

Coppelia with Gulfshore Ballet

(Available as a Subscription Concert)

Coppélia is one of the greatest comedic ballets in existence, presenting a delightful tale of budding romance alongside the curious contraptions of an eccentric inventor. Infatuated at the sight of Dr. Coppélius’s new doll, Frantz evades his darling Swanilda and sneaks into the inventor’s workshop where mayhem ensues. With a bright and luscious score by Delibes and dazzling sets and costumes, Coppélia will captivate both newcomers and balletomanes alike.  Presented in partnership with the Gulfshore Ballet.

Verdi’s Rigoletto

Saturday, May 9, 2020

(Available as a Subscription Concert)

There’s no character in opera more powerfully dramatic than the court jester Rigoletto, whose acid tongue and all-consuming desire for revenge lead to catastrophe for himself and his sweet, love-struck daughter Gilda. Of all the great Verdi works, none boasts more unforgettable tunes than this one. You’ll thrill to the licentious Duke of Mantua’s “La donna è mobile” and Gilda’s stunning “Caro nome,” not to mention the most celebrated quartet in all opera. Dominating the story, though, is Rigoletto himself, one of Verdi’s greatest characterizations—a complex and tragic figure, both pitiful and ferocious, with stupendous music to match.
