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

This is one of my favorite operas- so I was anticipating a great production from West Bay Opera. What I was not expecting was the contemporary setting- cell phones, i-pads, baseball bats, etc. This is a tragi-comedy but I felt that the comedy aspect was too pronounced by using the comtemporary clothes, food, etc. that made it so. It ALMOST ruined the experience for me. The music, the voices were fabulous- no fault with that.
And the staging- we were seated in the far right aisle in the back- row P- and could not see the singer in the balconey- not acceptable to me.
Would I recommend it? Yes, but go in knowing this is in a modern setting which many times does not work with the libretto. A few times the supertitles were not in sync.
Arguably Mozart's best and most dramatically accomplished opera, and considered by some to be the best opera ever written, Don Giovanni packs in arias and ensembles of tremendous technical challenge and sublime beauty. Combining tragedy, humor and astonishing depth of characterization, Don Giovanni is a piece sure to dazzle and inspire, and it is the world's seventh most performed opera.
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.
