Why See LA Opera - The Light in the Piazza?

MusicalsClassical & Opera

A ravishing musical romance

The magnificent Renee Fleming will lead this lush revival of Adam Guttel and Craig Lucas' glorious six-time Tony-Winner when it sweeps the West Coast this fall, courtesy of the LA Opera. Directed by Daniel Evans, The Light in the Piazza is an engaging and invigorating evocation of young love in 1950s Florence in the vein of classic American musicals. But under the surface of beauty and romance, there are long-held secrets waiting to unravel, threatening to shatter the lives of central character Margaret and her beloved daughter Clara.

Premiering on Broadway in 2005, The Light in the Piazza blends elements of opera and musical theatre, weaving them through an intriguing story that, despite the period setting, is refreshingly contemporary. 

A welcome return for 'People's Diva' Fleming to the LA Opera, where she was last seen in 2014's A Streetcar Named Desire, don't miss the US Premiere of this spectacular new production.
