University of Portland’s Mocks Crest Productions presents “The Light in the Piazza,” a contemporary musical operetta with a book by Craig Lucas and music and lyrics by Adam Guettel. The story is based on a 1962 film about a mother and daughter on a journey of self discovery and finding true love in the streets of Florence. The music broke with the standard Broadway pop tradition and ventured into neoromantic classical music for which it won a Tony Award in 2005. The production is presented by Mocks Crest Opera at the University of Portland which runs from June 9th through June 24th at 7:30pm (2:00pm Sundays). Tickets are available at the Mago Hunt Box office at 503-943-7287. Dinner or Brunch is available for purchase out on the lawn. For details, see the University of Portland website.
