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

This is the second time I've seen the L.A. Chamber Singers in the last two months. Once again, they were magnificent. Their voices rang out in historic Vibiana's (formerly, the Los Angeles Catholic Archdiocese Cathedral of St. Vibiana) in a way that brought both me and my friend to tears more than once. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
The grandeur of the Tudor Age is amply displayed in three brilliant settings of the Canticle of Mary, in Robert Parsons’ ground-breaking Great Service written shortly after the first Book of Common Prayer was completed in 1549. Three decades would pass before William Byrd would embark on his own Great Service, written during the first half of the 1580s. Another half century would pass before the last of the great generation of English composers before Purcell, Thomas Tomkins would proffer his own Great Service (c.1630) which is squarely in the Byrd tradition. The program also features a collection of grand motets spanning more than a century, beginning with a remarkably massive work from the Eton Choirbook.
Robert Parsons: Magnificat from The Great Service a 8; Holy Lord God Almighty a 5
