Divorced, at the end of another relationship, the reality of motherhood diminishing, Arden Scott, - the modern day woman and opera diva of Great Scott - is at a critical moment in her life. She returns to her hometown for the first time since becoming an international star, to help save her home opera company run by her mentor. The struggle of a make-or-break opera premiere is juxtaposed with the thriving Grizzlies, the home football team appearing in the Super Bowl, both happening on the same evening. Arden Scott must face the demons she left behind and the ones she lives with daily. Does disaster await her or perhaps there is hope and success on the horizon?

The music of Great Scott has great heart and great lightness. With tenderness and humor, Heggie explores the music of the past while contrasting it with today’s music of popular culture. Based on the original story by Terrence McNally and directed by Jack O’Brien, Great Scott is sure to delight in every way.

Directed by Jack O’Brien and composed by Jake Heggie. Starring baritone Nathan Gunn as Sid Taylor, soprano Isabel Leonard as Arden Scott and mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade as Mrs. Winnie Flatto.

Tickets start at $45
