La Périchole, Jacques Offenbach's opera buffa, comes to Montgomery Theater. The opera equivalent of musical-theater comedy, this fully staged three-act opera concerns two impoverished Peruvian street-singers, too poor to afford a marriage license, and a lecherous viceroy, who wishes to make the female street singer, named La Périchole, his mistress. Set in 1950s Lima, with music that's diverse and delightful, the opera is performed in English with supertitles. It contains some of Offenbach's most charming music, filled with boleros, seguidillas and galops. Learn More

What a great performance! The actoring and the singing were outstanding. I attend a lot of different theater in the Bay Area. This was one of the best of all I have seen. Who knew we had so much acting and singing talent in the under 20 crowd. If you can make a performane, do.
And we will be looking at going to future events by this group.
An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A witch...who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a baker and his wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell. Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. CMT’s Mainstage production of Into the Woods is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts in honor of American musical master, Stephen Sondheim.
