The Syracuse Opera is continuing its 40th season with a production of A Little Night Music. This Tony Award Winning Production will be sung in english with projected english titles. The score is thought to be one of composer Stephen Sondheim’s best work’s and features songs including: ‘Send in the Clowns’, and ‘The Glamorous Life’. The story follows former and current lovers in Sweden who experience betrayal, party crashing and a lavish country estate. The cast includes two audience favorites from Die Fledermaus, Peter Kendall Clark and Rachel Zatcoff.
All Syracuse Opera A Little Night Music ticket holders have the opportunity for a pre-performance ‘backstage pass’ talk hosted by the show’s Artistic Director, Douglas Kinney Frost. The talks begins about 1 hour before the show and lasts about 30 minutes.
