Stephen Sondheim: Passion - (http://www.mtishows.com/show_detail.asp?showid=000164#) - directed by Glenn T. Griffin - "No less than the wondrously complex landscape of the human heart is the subject of this haunting, intensely emotional one-act chamber opera.... A remote military outpost in 1863 Italy, a handsome army captain, separated from his beautiful – but married – mistress, is forced to re-evaluate his beliefs about love when he becomes the object of the obsessive, unrelenting passions of Fosca, his Colonel’s plain, sickly cousin.... [O]ne of Stephen Sondheim's most emotional works. Intimate, raw, erotic and dark, it explores universal yet often unspoken truths."
$28-$24, senior & student tickets available.
