Riverside - Mc Coy Rigby Entertainment & Fox Operator Bill Malone Of Fx Arts, by arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh, continue their 2011-2012 season with one the greatest love stories of all time, MISS SAIGON, with music by Claude Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr. & Alain Boublil, adapted from the original French lyrics by Alain Boublil, additional material by Richard Maltby, Jr., orchestrations by William D. Brohn. This new production will be choreographed by Dana Solimando, musical directed by John Glaudini and directed by Brian Kite. MISS SAIGON will open on Friday, May 11, 2012 and perform for three performances only through Saturday, May 12, 2012 at the Fox Performing Arts Center, 3801 Mission Inn Avenue in Riverside.
The classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In MISS SAIGON, Alain Boublil and Claude- Michel Schönberg (the creators of Les Misérables), along with Richard Maltby, Jr., bring Puccini’s Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. Raw and uncompromising, MISS SAIGON is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.
