2014 SUMMER SEASON

Carlisle Floyd’s

 

Susannah

 

Bock and Harnick’s

 

Fiddler on the Roof



Chosen to represent the best of American music and culture at the Brussels World’s Fair Brussels in 1958, Carlisle Floyd’s moving and melodious Susannah is one of the most beloved and often produced American operas.

 

Susannah dreams of escaping from her small town in Appalachia and “going beyond them mountains where the folks talk nice an’ the folks dress nice like y’ see in the mail-order catalogues.” The soaring melodies, reminiscent of Puccini, will be brought to life by principal artists from The Metropolitan Opera and a rousing church revival chorus.

 

This opera speaks directly to your heart and is not to be missed!

Fiddler on the Roof has been a hit since it opened on Broadway in 1964 – winning nine Tony Awards, spawning four Broadway revivals, and inspiring a three-time Academy Award winning film adaptation in 1971.

 

Now in its 50th anniversary season, you and your family will want to sing along with one hit tune after another, including “Tradition,” “If I Were a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” “To Life,” and “Do You Love Me.”

 

Set in Tsarist Russia, this timeless tale of the triumph of humor and love over hardship is an experience you will want to share with your entire family.
