Talk about your merry and bright -- the charm-filled Christmas musical that broke box office records on Broadway is coming to town. Based on the hit 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, this funny and heartfelt show follows the pointy-shoed footsteps of William "Buddy" Hobbs, who was raised as an elf in Santa's workshop and grows up -- and up, and up -- before finally discovering that he's actually human. So Santa sends Buddy on a quest to meet his human family, where it turns out the happy-go-lucky guy has to help them -- and the whole city of New York -- remember the true meaning of the season.

How can one not love living to an evening's worth of Verdi? However, the performers were underwhelming and the sets so minimal and poorly conceived as to be embarrasing.
Much better to put on a concert version and charge $120 (instead of $240) for the top ticket price.
Verdi’s powerful story of forbidden love, betrayal, and revenge promises to keep audiences enthralled. Soaring arias, gorgeous ensembles, fabulous costumes and lavish sets bring this sinister masked ball to life.
The all-star cast includes tenors Salvatore Licitra and Frank Porretta, who share the role of the ebullient and passionate King Gustavus III. Sopranos Tamara Wilson and Susan Neves portray the innocent wife Amelia with Luca Salsi and Timothy Mix sharing the role of Count Anckarström, her betrayed husband and Gustavus’ trusted friend. Mezzo-soprano Elena Manistina sings the pivotal role of the fortune teller Mam’zelle Arvidson. Conductor Daniele Callegari and director James Robinson make their WNO debuts in this stunning production from Opera Colorado.
