After dazzling audiences in New York and Boston -- and winning the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical revival -- this exciting new staging of Pippin comes to the Pantages. This updated version of the Broadway classic infuses the production with amazing acrobatics and wondrous magical feats, along with the music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz, award-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell. With classic songs "Corner of the Sky," "No Time at All," "Magic to Do" and "Extraordinary," and recreated versions of Bob Fosse's original choreography, this sexy and sophisticated version of Pippin tells the story of the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, who goes on a death-defying journey to find meaning in life. He encounters love, sex, war and politics, and must ultimately choose between a life that's ordinary or a flash of singular glory. Learn More

Acme of original instrument groups -- one of the finest in the world. Faultless with the possible exception of their programming which features too many lesser compositions by lesser composers. The core of the Baroque remains Handel and Bach -- both underrepresented.
The choice of Zelenka would have been far more satisfying than the monotony of the relatively one-sided Vivaldi and other minor composer featured (a quite forgettable exponent of the 'sewing machine' school of composition).
