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.

Act II: Cavalleria Rusticana
Composed by Pietro Mascagni
Libretto by Giovanni Targioni-Tozzetti and Guido Menasci </p> <p>Set in a Sicilian village, this melodramatic tale of "rustic chivalry" follows the fickle and passionate love triangle between Turiddu, who loves Lola; Santuzza, who loves Turiddu, the father of her child; and Alfio, the all-too-trusting husband of Lola. Mascagni's music takes us through the emotional heights and depths of this tragic love story.
"Force of nature" mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick makes her company debut as she joins Italian tenor Salvatore Licitra (Andrea Chénier, Tosca), American baritone Gordon Hawkins (Porgy and Bess, Das Rheingold) and the Washington National Opera Orchestra and Chorus in a concert version of Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana.</p>
