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.
U.S. stock markets finished higher Friday, as Donald Trump took the oath of office to become the nation's 45th president, delivering an inaugural address repeating protectionist policies he promised throughout his campaign. Stocks rallied immediately following Trump's election with indexes hitting records as markets spurred by prospects of corporate tax cuts, deregulation, and infrastructure spending, all expected to accelerate economic growth. However advances have stalled recently as investors look for proof that these policy actions will result in better company earnings.
