Join Dr. Miriam Schildkret, PN1 for a three-part lecture series previewing Arizona Opera’s productions of Carmen, A Little Night Music, and Così fan tutte.

This preview dives into the Tony Award and Drama Desk- winning Best Musical - A Little Night Music. Inspired by the Ingmar Bergman film, Smiles of a Summer Night, A Little Night Music focuses on a deliciously tangled web of affairs, all ripe with the possibility of new love and second chances. A comedy of manners with rapturous music, it is moving, witty, heartbreaking, and—most of all—a celebration of love.
