on the outdoor stage at YMTC’s Aquatic Park Campus
Set to a soaring, operatic score by Adam Guettel, Light in the Piazza is the story of an American woman, Margaret, and her adult daughter, Clara, on vacation in Florence in the 1950s. Love blossoms between Clara and a young Italian man – and Margaret, who holds close many secrets about herself and Clara, is forced to reconsider her daughter’s future, as well as her own unrealized hopes, dreams, and loves. Piazza is a modern musical fable, romantic, complicated, and richly told. YMTC’s production of Light in the Piazza will be a fully-staged production featuring a chamber orchestra playing the original orchestrations.
