There's trouble in River City! Berkeley Playhouse presents the heartwarming family favorite The Music Man. Lovable swindler "Professor" Harold Hill is trying to pull a con on the citizens of River City, Iowa. He claims he'll save the town's youth from sin and corruption by selling them instruments and helping to organize a boys' band -- despite the fact that he actually knows nothing about music. Soon, the irresistible "Music Man" manages to turn the bickering school board into a barbershop quartet, win the heart of Marian the librarian, and somehow transform into an honest man in the process. The delightful story is set to a parade of classic Broadway tunes, including "Seventy-Six Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Goodnight, My Someone." Learn More

Surely one final heroic effort will bring about the hard won victory, putting the sacred city back where it belongs, in the hands of the true believers. Among the Christians, hope runs high, based entirely on Rinaldo, a young soldier of spectacular prowess, whose ferocity on the field is legendary...
Though permeated through and through with magic — transformations, disappearances, cataclysms, and much more — the opera's real magic lies in the music, where Handel once again is at his supreme, sublime, awe-inspiring best.
