Melissa Errico

Sondheim Sublime : The Music of Stephen Sondheim

Friday, September 30, 2022 – 8:00pm

"The Maria Callas of American musical theatre," as Opera News has called her, referencing both her silken voice and dramatic, expressive intensity, Melissa Errico, a Tony Award-nominated Broadway star, is an actress, singer, and author. First known for her starring roles on Broadway, she has since become a concert, cabaret, and recording artist as well; her 2018 album Sondheim Sublime was called by the Wall Street journal "The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded."

Produced by Rob Mathes (Sting), with Sondheim Sublime, Melissa Errico shows us a side of Stephen Sondheim's music that no singer has explored so completely before. It's not the satiric or slyly disillusioned Sondheim - it's the soulful Sondheim, the heartfelt, hungering Sondheim, author of songs of aching love and slowly dawning wisdom, the exalted, and reflective Sondheim: Sondheim Sublime.

Accompanied by pianist Tedd Firth, Errico sings in a tone by turns hushed, electric, and ecstatic, giving us a new understanding of the emotional intensity that has always equaled Sondheim's virtuosic verbal magic.

Tickets: $49, $39, $29
