WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This spectacular new production marshals the choral and orchestral forces of our world-renowned company to present Show Boat,/I> in all its glory! Created in 1927, this seminal masterpiece gave American musical theater and opera a new voice -- one with powerful subject matter, astonishing musical variety and an unmistakably American atmosphere. Moving from 1890s Mississippi to Chicago to "Roaring 20s" Broadway, Show Boat follows the lives of a company of theater folk -- deeply involving us in their triumphs and sorrows, while illuminating the racial and social changes that were shaping the country.
