MacPhail Spotlight Series: Flirting with Sondheim
Minneapolis, MN 55401(612) 321-0100
Pre-concert lecture at 7 p.m.
Stephen Sondheim is, without a doubt, one of America’s most accomplished musicians. This program is a tribute to his versatile genius, both as lyricist and composer.
MacPhail performers will regale audiences with scenes and arias from his most beloved works, including West Side Story, Company, Into the Woods, and Little Night Music. The repertoire was chosen with an eye to Valentine’s Day. So the concert’s secondary theme is love, but always with Sondheim’s signature realism and witty touch.
