"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.
On Thursday a group of atheists filed a lawsuit in Harrisburg's federal court in an attempt to modify the prayer protocol at Pennsylvania's House of Representatives saying officials rejected atheists' requests for an opening invocation. The lawsuit stated "Like theists, atheists are capable of giving inspiring and moving invocations, similar to those given in other communities across the U.S., but with one significant difference - the former believe in God, while the plaintiffs do not."
