Louisa May Alcott's much-adored novel has been transformed into a hit Broadway musical that lights up the stage. Little Women tells the poignant story of the four young March sisters -- eldest sister Meg, tomboy and budding author Jo, shy and gentle Beth, and Amy, the artistically inclined baby of the bunch -- as they come of age during the Civil War under the care of their doting mother. It's a touching tale of young love, personal discovery and the enduring power of family. Filled with memorable music, dancing and a whole lot of heart, Little Women will make you laugh and cry with its tragedies and its triumphs. Learn More

A terrific production.
Creative sets and imaginative costumes highlighted the poet's (Hoffmann's) drunken fantasies.
Vocally secure and expressive singing by all.
The characters looked their parts and acted convincingly. I hate to mention anyone in particular because of lack of space and do not want to leave anyone out. I attended performances at the Met in NY and at SFOpera this month. In many ways this show was a greater success and much more enjoyable. I saw Hoffmann in Paris some years ago. West Bay Opera's was a far better show!
Outstanding achievement. Bravo!
About the Ticket Supplier: West Bay Opera
Performing both the familiar and the adventurous, West Bay Opera seeks to please and challenge singers and audiences with three productions per season, one each in October, February, and May. The repertoire includes standard popular works, lesser-known operas and operettas, and occasionally operas by modern composers. Some of West Bay Opera's greatest successes result from undertaking formidable artistic challenges. Past accomplishments include Bellini's rarely-performed Norma, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin in the original Russian, and Wagner's Der Fliegende Holländer. The principal consideration is always to give talented young opera singers an opportunity to perform challenging roles and, in turn, to give audiences the pleasure of hearing these singers on their way to fame.
Comic operas are performed in English translations, some expressly prepared for West Bay Opera. Dramatic operas are performed in the original language. All productions are accompanied by projected supertitles in English.
