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

Set in the fantastical science fiction universe of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, David Scott Marley’s sparkling English adaptation of The Tales of Hoffmann returns to Berkeley Opera. Populating this pre-electric industrial “steampunk” world is the tortured poet Hoffmann telling stories of his past loves, taking flights of fancy powered by steam, elaborate clockworks and magic where the science leaves off.
Adam Flowers is the tortured poet Hoffmann, Angela Cadelago the objects of his affection, Paul Murray his villainous rival and Nora Martin his devoted friend and muse.
English adaptation by David Scott Marley
Conducted by Ernest Knell
Directed by Phil Lowery
