Summer Fun Guide: Music, Dance and More


Miller, Sarah Bryan, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


The peculiar predicaments of the men a lad apprenticed to pirates who wants to go straight ("The Pirates of Penzance"), a pair of jealous husbands and ardent lovers ("Il Tabarro/I Pagliacci"), a young man fighting with his nature as well as what he did ("Champion"), and a pushy fianc ("The Kiss") may dictate the action, but you wouldn't have much of a story without the strong women in the middle.

Mabel ("Pirates") may seem at first glance like an airhead ingenue, but she's strong enough to stand up to her sisters, father and a band of pirates to protect the tenor she loves. Giorgetta ("Tabarro") and Nedda ("Pagliacci") both decide to leave their husbands for the men they love, and both pay a terrible price. (Oops.) Emile ("Champion") would be a very different person without his mother, although that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. By standing up to Luk, Vendulka ("The Kiss") assures that their marriage starts out on a note of mutual respect.
