"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.
After nearly two-decades, the Bayer Corporation is pulling the plug and ending its lease for the landmark sign that overlooks downtown Pittsburgh. Lamar Advertising owns the sign and although Bayer officials say they have asked Lamar Advertising to upgrade the 30-foot tall sign with brighter and more energy efficient lighting, those efforts were complicated by city regulations on signs and billboards. Bayer began leasing that sign back in 1992 and now, Scenic Pittsburgh wants public input on the sign.
