"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.
The Turnpike has halted design and engineering work on the last leg of the Mon-Fayette Expressway in response to concerns raised this week by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission questioning the value of the $2.2 billion project. County Executive Rich Fitzgerald favors canceling the construction, transferring the funds to other projects that better redevelop the Mon Valley. However Fayette County Commissioner Vincent Vicites believes the Turnpike can’t just shift funds to another regional project and wants the construction completed so the Expressway can be fully utilized and the region won't lose the money.
