Beatrice & Benedict

Overheard confessions, unfortunate reactions, tender reconciliations, and plenty of witty banter glide on a warm breeze of masterful orchestration. In this novel adaptation of Shakespeare’s lively comedy “Much Ado About Nothing”, Berlioz’s exuberant opera score is paired with English text lifted directly from the Bard himself.
Leads will be Jeremy Little (Met Tenor) and Dawn Pierce (Suzuki in ALO’s production of Madama Butterfly). Conductor will be Michael Horowitz, Music Director and Associate Professor of LSU Opera and Artistic Director with Opera Louisiana. Jon Truitt returns as Director of Summer Programs.
Performances are July 6 at 8PM and July 8 at 3PM
Tickets available through the Diane Wortham Theater Box Office.
