The Fantasticks, the world’s longest running musical and a current Broadway hit, brims with classics such as “Try to Remember.” Crafted with charming simplicity, it is the story of a boy, a girl and their meddling fathers who scheme to get them together.
The role of El Gallo will be performed by baritone Gabriel Preisser, praised by reviewers for his “rich, luscious” voice and “matinee idol’s charm and charisma.” Quinn Shadko and Matt Berdahl are cast as the teen-agers who discover love, its joy and challenges.
Presented by Skylark Opera as part of its Summer Festival. Directed by Robert Neu, who directed the critically acclaimed 2011 Skylark production of On the Town.
Tickets $25-43 at www.ticketworks.com or 612-343-3390. A series ticket to both shows (The Fantasticks and The Mikado) is $75.
