A runaway hit at TheatreWorks' New Works Festival, The Great Pretender now receives a fully staged world premiere at the Lucie Stern Theatre. In this comic tale of friendship, love and letting go, a children's TV host is consumed with the passing of a cherished puppeteer. Evoking the small-screen shows that shaped the childhoods of so many, The Great Pretender moves beyond the painted sets and colored lights to discover that people (as well as puppets) need a helping hand. TheatreWorks kick-starts its new season with this bittersweet comedy from David West Read (The Performers). Learn More

Everything about this production is wonderful- the cast, the staging, the costumes, the music.
In the discussion after Sunday's performance, one woman who saw Sutherland in the part of Lucia in the 50's said that Ms. Bard (Lucia) surpassed that- the best Lucia she has ever heard.
BUY THAT TICKET NOW! Do not miss the final weekend.
Composed in 1832, at the height of Donizetti’s fame, and based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, Lucia is the ultimate tragic tale. Forced into a marriage of convenience, Lucia ends up losing her mind and murdering her husband on her wedding night. Revived by the legendary Maria Callas in 1952, Lucia is a tour de force for coloratura sopranos, especially the mad scene, but the score goes well beyond that, showcasing a wealth of ensembles, arias and sublime choral writing.
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.
