Now Playing Onstage in Kansas City - Week of 1/05/2014 THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Shatterglass Productions
1/10-1/11/2014
The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; Book by Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse; Suggested by `The Trapp Family Singers` by Maria Augusta Trapp

As a teaser to the second half, Corigliano's Fantasia on an Ostinato is a relentless meditation based on an almost minimalistic passage from Beethoven's own Seventh Symphony. Concertmaster Noah Geller takes center stage for the first time on our Classical Series to display his impressive musical prowess in the glorious Violin Concerto by Beethoven. Spend the rest of the evening on The Edge of your seats as the Symphony performs what Richard Wagner dubbed, "the apotheosis of the dance itself." Ovation & Masterworks Series
