Meredith Willson’s THE MUSIC MAN
Music and Lyrics by Meredith Willson
Book by Meredith Willson and Franklin Lacey

The town of River City, Iowa will never be the same after the smooth talking traveling salesman Harold Hill convinces them a children’s band is the only way to save their town from the terrors of a pool hall. Little does Harold suspect that he will never be the same either after taking on this Iowa town and its librarian, Marian Paroo. A fun and boisterous romantic comedy ensues in a performance that is ideal for the whole family.

The Music Man is made possible by Charlottesville Opera’s Presenting Sponsor: The Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation. Additional support by Tessa Gowan Ader, whose gifts make possible the Ader Emerging Artist Program, training the next generation of great voices.
