Oberon

Oberon
or The Elf King’s Oath

June 10 – 18, 2017
at GALA Hispanic Theatre

Carl Maria von Weber’s famous overture for Oberon (1825) preludes a gorgeous midsummer night’s dream of music.  Oberon enlists the mischievous Puck to find true love among humans, as a host of elves, pirates, mermaids, and fairies intervene to help or thwart the quest. Writer & director Nick Olcott’s English adaptation winks at it all and keeps you laughing. Vocal fireworks abound and amaze. Stanley Thurston conducts the chamber orchestra and stellar cast: Aurelio Domínguez, Katherine Fili*, Cara Gonzalez, Sammy Huh*, Anamer Castrello, Alex Alburqueque; with Emily Casey*, Laynee Dell Woodward*, Teresa Ferrara, Patricia Portillo, Louisa Waycott*, Nicholas Carratura, Cornelius David, Elliot Matheny, Simon Charette. DESIGNERS: Jonathan Dahm Robertson, Donna Breslin, Marianne Meadows
