“Music,” wrote Claude Debussy, “must be as boundless as the wind. The sky. The sea.” La mer is Debussy’s seductive impression of the crashing waves. These concerts also feature Saint-Saëns’s “Egyptian” Piano Concerto.
Passions run high onstage and off in this musical version of Taming of the Shrew, blending the irreverent humor of William Shakespeare and Cole Porter. This brilliant battle of the sexes won the very first Tony Award for Best Musical and is considered one of Broadway’s great treasures, featuring unforgettable classics like Why Can’t You Behave? Too Darn Hot and Another Op’nin’, Another Show. Ages 11 and up.
