Pandora Productions presents Stephen Sondheim's PASSION
Pandora Productions has been presenting plays and musicals that speak to the LGBTQ community for over 20 years but in the 2015-2016 season she will step outside the comfortable 'box' to present a Tony award winning musical by a gay composer but without the usual LBGTQ themes. Stephen Sondheim's PASSION opens the season in September.
PASSION - Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine
Director: Michael J. Drury; Musical Director: Doug Jones
Sponsor: Charles & Carol Pye
A remote military outpost in 1863 Italy becomes a wondrously rich and complex metaphor for the landscape of the human heart. A handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful - but married - mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel's plain, sickly cousin. The sweeping, romantic score of this haunting and powerful chamber opera is intimate, raw, erotic and dark exploring universal yet often unspoken truths.
Performances: September 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 @ 7:30 pm
September 20 & 27 @ 5:30 pm
September 26 @ 2:00 pm
