July 12 - August 22, 2014
In line with Artistic & General Director Francesca Zambello’s desire to include a great American musical each season, Glimmerglass presents a new production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, with full orchestra and no amplification.
Pegged as the “best musical of the 20th century” by Time magazine, Carousel tells the story of a carousel barker’s struggles to rise above challenging circumstances. The musical includes such favorites as “If I Loved You,” “June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Presented in English with projected lyrics.
*Young Artist Chris Carr will perform the role of Billy Bigelow.
