Sweet sounds ex­pected from op­er­atic so­ci­ety

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON SHOW -

AN op­er­atic so­ci­ety has an­nounced its next pro­duc­tion will be Sweet Char­ity.

The Bea­cons­field Op­er­atic So­ci­ety has said it has cho­sen the next show it will per­form for its win­ter sea­son.

Sweet Char­ity, with mu­sic by Cy Cole­man, is based on Fed­erico Fellini’s screen­play for Nights of Cabiria.

How­ever, where Fellini’s black-and­white Ital­ian film fol­lows the ro­man­tic ups-and-downs of an ever hope­ful prostitute, this mu­si­cal fol­lows a dancer-for-hire at a Times Square dance hall.

The mu­si­cal pre­miered on Broad­way in 1966, where it was nom­i­nated for nine Tony Awards, and ran in the West End as well as hav­ing re­vivals and in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­tions.

The mu­si­cal will be per­formed at the Cur­zon Cen­tre, in Maxwell Road, Bea­cons­field from Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 22 to Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 25.
