Now Playing Onstage in Orlando - Week of 12/29/2013 THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Central Florida Lyric Opera
1/1-1/2/2014
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

Now Playing Onstage in Orlando - Week of 12/29/2013 THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA
The Harriett Theatre
12/6-1/5/2014
Set in Florence and Rome in 1953, The Light in the Piazza is the story of a young American tourist traveling with her mother who meets and falls for a young Italian. The mother opposes the affair for reasons that only gradually become apparent as the musical unfolds. Music and lyrics are by Adam Guettel, the grandson of Richard Rodgers. The intricately classic score is the perfect complement to an Italian love story and is sure to be audience favorite. Based on a novella by ElizaBeth Spencer, The Light in the Piazza won six Tony Awards in 2005 and is perhaps the most celebrated score of the past decade.
