With a career that spans more than five decades, Barry Gibb stands as one of the most prolific singer-songwriter-producers in music history. As the co-founder and creative leader of the Bee Gees -- along with his twin brothers Maurice and Robin -- Gibb sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and produced smash hits like "Stayin' Alive," "How Deep Is Your Love" and "You Should Be Dancing." And they instantly became the face of disco with their contributions to 1977's mega-hit soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever. Gibb has also written chart-topping songs for other music icons, including Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Celine Dion and Michael Bolton. Don't miss this chance to experience Gibb's incredible melodies -- and amazing falsetto -- when he takes the stage at the TD Garden. Learn More

Sweet, gullible Nemorino loves smart, wealthy Adina. She gets engaged to a passing soldier. Desperate Nemorino meets a fast-talking doctor who sells him a slow-acting love potion, actually red wine. As the soldier’s wedding looms, Nemorino enlists to get money for more potion. Suddenly, unknowingly, he inherits a fortune. As the village girls swoon, he thinks the potion works. Adina, moved to tears, buys out Nemorino’s army contract. Everyone lives happily ever after, especially the doctor, who sells a lot more potion.
