Into the Woods
Music and lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM
Book by JAMES LAPINE
Join Charlottesville Opera as they present Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, the modern classic, which weaves together the stories of several fairy tales, examining the consequences of characters’ wishes. As with The Marriage of Figaro, this musical continues the stories of characters known to us from other stories.
Leah Edwards (Master Class on Broadway) stars as Cinderella. Rena Strober (Les Miserables on Broadway, HBO’s Veep) plays the witch. Christopher Job (Metropolitan Opera, Reverend Blitch in Charlottesville Opera’s 2014 Susanna) plays Cinderella’s Prince/The Wolf. Deborah Grausman (Fiddler on the Roof National Tour and the voice of Smartie the Smartphone on HBO’s Sesame Street) plays Little Red. Adam Alexander (New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic) portrays the Baker. Audience favorite Sharin Apostolou (Glimmerglass Festival) returns to Charlottesville Opera for a fourth consecutive year following her triumphant portrayals of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (2015), Nellie Forbush in South Pacific (2016), and Ado Annie in Oklahoma! (2017).
Audiences of all ages will enjoy this musical’s quick-witted, fresh take on classic fairy tales. Don’t miss the special one-hour family performance on August 5th*.
