Vanderbilt Opera Theatre: Gayle Shay, director and Vanderbilt University Orchestra: Robin Fountain, conductor present "Into The Woods"
Vanderbilt Opera Theatre puts an offbeat spin on Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s beloved, fairy-tale-inspired musical production. Your favorite figures from childhood — Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk — undertake various quests to win their hearts’ desire, then face the consequences of getting “everything they ever wanted.” Our production takes this fractured fairy story and warps it still further by giving it a steampunk setting. Sweet and sunny, this one is not. With Sondheim and Lapine’s spectacular score and script, this is assuredly one you won’t want to miss!
