"A Little Night Music" at SummerFest 2013
Opera Theater SummerFest presents an international classic by American master composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim with some of musical theater’s favorite songs and scenes. “Send in the Clowns”, “Every Day a Little Death” and “A Weekend in the Country” are among the numbers woven into the musical version of “Smiles of a Summer Night”, Ingmar Bergman’s story of lovers whose affairs converge during a visit to a country estate. Fully staged, “A Little Night Music” is directed by Scott Wise and accompanied by the SummerFest Orchestra, conducted by Walter Morales. SummerFest presents this Sondheim treasure Sun., July 7 at 2:30 pm at the Twentieth Century Club, 4210 Bigelow Blvd., in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Oakland (15213). Patrons are also invited to a Liebeslieder Waltzes during brunch at 1:00 pm and a Piano Bar at 4:30 pm. Tickets and information at: www.otsummerfest.org or call 412-326-9687.
According to a July Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2016 voters, 88% of those casting a ballot for President Trump would do it again, a slight improvement over the May figure of 82%. Taken together, the polls suggest that Trump's standing with his base has improved slightly over the past few months despite his Republican Party's repeated failures to overhaul the healthcare system and multiple congressional and federal investigations into his campaign's ties to Russia. Would you vote the same person for President as you did last November?
