University Opera And University Theatre: Sondheim’s Into the Woods
Be careful what you wish for! University Opera teams up with University Theatre to present Stephen Sondheim’s popular musical featuring a colorful cast of characters and one of his most memorable scores. In this story of interconnected fairy tales, familiar characters – including Cinderella, Jack and his beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood – venture into the woods to fulfill their wishes. Half way through, it appears that everyone will live happily ever after – until the real consequences of the characters’ actions come back to haunt them. Ultimately, they find that they can indeed save themselves, but only after sacrifices are made and difficult lessons are learned.
