Baylor Opera Theater Presents "A Little Night Music"

January 18, 2018
Baylor Opera Theater will present four performances of Stephen Sondheim’s musical A Little Night Music in the Jesse H. Jones Theatre of Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center from Wednesday, January 24, through Saturday, January 27. Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. each night.
This fully staged Baylor Opera Theater production of A Little Night Music will feature students from the Vocal Division and the Baylor Symphony Orchestra, all under the baton of Jeffrey Peterson, Associate Professor of Vocal Coaching and Music Director for Baylor Opera Theater. Stage direction will be by Susan Stone Li of Houston, who has a diverse background in opera and musical theatre. In past seasons, she has directed at Houston Grand Opera, Opera in the Heights, and Atlanta Opera.
Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her. It was in 1973 that Stephen Sondheim transformed filmmaker Ingmar Bergman’s Smiles of a Summer Night into a masterful piece of musical theatre, winning four Tony Awards in the process. A Little Night Music offers magical moments of adoration, regret, and desire, including the popular showstopper, “Send in the Clowns.”
Reserved tickets for the general public are $20 from www.baylor.edu/theatre. Tickets for those with Baylor I.D.s (students, faculty, staff) may be purchased, in person, at the Baylor University Department of Theatre Arts box office for $17.
