Photo Flash: First Look at LITTLE WOMEN at Pittsburgh Opera
Pittsburgh Opera continues its 77th season with the Pittsburgh premiere of Mark Adamo's operatic adaptation of the beloved classic LITTLE WOMEN. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!
Based on the book by Louisa May Alcott, the production has been a remarkable success. The New York Times called it a "masterpiece", NPR broadcast it on the radio, and it was shown as a PBS "Great Performances" television special. The emotional journey of irrepressible, outspoken Jo March makes this new production, starring our Resident Artists, a can't-miss event.
On stage January 23, 26, 29 and 31, it brings the lives of the four March sisters to the CAPA Theater downtown. Tickets start at $50.

The four March sisters and their friend Laurie hold the 'Court of Last Resort': Amy (Claudia Rosenthal), Beth (Adelaide Boedecker), Jo (Corrie Stallings), Meg (Laurel Semerdjian) and Laurie (Adam Bonanni).
Laurie (Adam Bonanni) and Jo (Corrie Stallings) -- best friends, but 'it's complicated.'
Jo (Corrie Stallings) does not like what she hears when Brooke (Brian Vu) proposes to Meg (Laurel Semerdjian).
Aunt Cecilia (Leah de Gruyl) disapproves of Brooke (Brian Vu) and Meg's (Laurel Semerdjian) marriage while Amy (Claudia Rosenthal) looks on.
Brooke and Meg exchange their wedding vows, the same ones which Meg's parents used: Gideon March (Daniel Teadt), Brooke (Brian vu), Meg (Laurel Semerdjian) and Alma March (Kara Cornell)
Mr. Dashwood (Daniel Teadt), publisher at The Daily Volcano, reads Jo's (Corrie Stallings) manuscript while she enthusiastically demonstrates a key scene.
Brooke (Brian Vu) and Meg (Laurel Semerdjian) are now the parents of newborn twins. Their reaction is perfectly understandable.
Jo (Corrie Stallings) is moved by Friedrich Bhaerâ€™s (Matthew Scollin) powerful rendition of 'Kennst du das Land?'
