Valley Light Opera presents Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot

WHAT: Valley Light Opera presents Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot
WHERE: The Academy of Music Theatre 274 Main St Northampton, MA.
WHEN: November 2, 8, 9 7:30 PM
              November 3, 10 2:00 PM

“If Ever I would Leave You,” it wouldn’t be in November. That is when the Valley Light Opera is bringing you Lerner and Loewe’s beloved Camelot at The Academy of Music. Valley Light Opera’s Camelot, will meld the beauty of the old with the energy and opportunities of the new. Set in the 15th century of knights and maidens, treachery vs trust, Camelot is an evolving state, where “Right is Might” and the Round Table come into being. It lends itself to whispers of today’s politics with the promise that the strength of human goodness overcomes evil and unites the decent in a common cause. Our Camelot is a Utopian state, timeless, yet stuck in time. The story and musical accompaniment of a full orchestra should be enough to bring you to the Academy for an entertaining evening or matinee. But Valley Light Opera, known for its beautiful sets, costumes and props, adds another dimension to Camelot. Video enhancements and other computerized special effects will bring a new aspect to our sets. This presentation will celebrate Valley Light Opera’s 45th year of production. Having lost our Founding Father, William Venman, this spring, we will do our best to honor his legacy.
