Light Opera Oklahoma Season Takes Attendees Around the World
Light Operal Oklahoma (LOOK) announced the details of their exotic 2005 season of musical comedies. Professional actors, musicians and designers were recruited from across the county by Light Opera Oklahoma’s artistic director, Eric Gibson.
The 2005 season will take a musical comedy tour around the world to exotic locations. First to Japan with performances of The Mikado beginning June 11 at the OKMozart International Festival in Bartlesville. The Mikado will open in Tulsa on June 15 at Williams Theatre at the Tulsa Perfoming Arts Center and run through July 8.
La Perichole will provide an enchanting look at Peru when it is performed in the Chapman Theatre at Kendall Hall on the campus of the University of Tulsa on June 19 and 23.
The Oklahoma premier of Too Many Sopranos will take audiences “to hell and back” when four fabulous divas go down under to recruit tenors and basses for the heavenly chorus. See the Williams Theatre transformed June 22 to July 9 as LOOK takes this amusing trip.
Some of the best songs ever written for the Amercian musical stage will be heard at Tulsa Performing Arts Center’s Williams Theatre when LOOK travels to Russia for Fiddler on the Roof, premiering June 30 and running through July 16.
The season will include two Cabaret Concerts with entertainment by performers in LOOK’s 2005 company. Patrons will be seated at tables and served wine while enjoying music and laughter in the intimate Norman Theatre at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center.
The season will continue the exotic tour by actually taking the show on the road. The Mikado will have performances in Lawton on July 7 and Okmulgee July 14.
