Modell Center at the Lyric announces 2012-13 season
Two Broadway hits that have toured the region in recent years are on the list: The energetic Public Theater revival of the original rock music, "Hair" (March 8 and 9); and "Dreamgirls," a high-energy show very loosely based on The Supremes and other Motown groups (May 4 and 5).
In a bit of age-defying bravado, 60-year-old Cathy Rigby will be back in the air as the title character in "Peter Pan," the role that earned her a Tony nomination in 1990. The show is booked March 22 and 24.
Other productions on the schedule include ...
The season also offers a "Sesame Street" production (Sept. 7 to 9), along with concerts by Journey (Oct. 14), Aussie Pink Floyd (Nov. 13), and the Moody Blues (Dec. 1). Goldberg will perform on Nov. 3.
Holiday fare at the center will include presentations of "A Christmas Carol" (Dec. 15) and "The Nutcracker" (Dec. 21 and 22).
As previously announced, Lyric Opera Baltimore will stage "La Boheme" Nov, 2 and 4, conducted by Steven White, directed by Bernard Uzan. The cast includes Anna Samuil as Mimi, Eric Margiore as Rodolfo, Colleen Daly as Musetta, and Timothy Mix as Marcello.
The company will also offer "Rigoletto" May 17 and 19, as well as a concert of bel canto repertoire with piano accompaniment April 13.
Peabody Opera Theatre will return to the Lyric with a production of "Don Giovanni" Nov. 16 and 18.
