Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr.

Music by Alan Menken

Lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice

Book by Linda Woolverton

Beauty and the Beast JR. tells the story of Belle, an adventurous young girl, and the Beast, her hideous captor who is actually a young prince trapped under a spell. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return – before time runs out. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, including a loving teapot, a charming candelabra, and a nervous mantel clock, Belle and the Beast find a beautiful friendship and love that neither knew was possible. Beauty and the Beast JR. features classic songs from the Academy Award®-winning film score such as “Be Our Guest” and “Belle,” as well as original songs from the 1994 Tony®-nominated Broadway musical.

Mid-Ohio Civic Opera Presents - Two One-Act Operas!

Trouble in Tahiti is a one-act opera, in seven scenes, by Leonard Bernstein. It is a day in the life of an American married couple. They struggle with their jobs, their roles, and their children, while yearning for meaning and balance. This is contrasted by a jazz trio, a “chorus”, who sing about a “Leave it to Beaver” type of movie life as presented by mid-century movies, television, and radio. The couple each long for quiet and relationship, even though they wonder if it’s possible to rediscover their love for one another. In the end, they choose the conjured fiction of the silver screen movie, “Trouble in Tahiti”.
Gianni Schicchi is a one-act comedic Italian opera by Giacomo Puccini. Before the music starts, the patriarch of a large wealthy family dies. The family immediately stops mourning and quickly tears the house apart to find his will. They find the hidden will and read that the old man left all of his money and worldly possessions to a group of church friars, with nothing for the greedy family members. A young family daughter suggests that they call in the town fixer, Gianni Schicchi, to change the will and give each what they want. She is in love with Schicchi’s son and thinks it will enable them to get married, as they are from vastly different social levels. Intrigue, comedy, disguises, surprises, and true love ensue as they work towards their fraud. The world famous aria, “O mio bambini caro” is among the melodic gems in this score.
A cast of professional singers, pianist, Sophia Pavleko Chandley, and conductor, Paul Chandley will lead these productions. Produced by Mid-Ohio Civic Opera.
