Starring LESLIE UGGAMS

HELLO, DOLLY! is an irresistible story about the joy of living, glittering with memorable songs, a-shine with scenes alternately comic and tender, alive with the ebullient personality of one of the most fabulous characters on the musical stage...Dolly Gallagher Levi!

Besides the beloved title song, Hello, Dolly, classic musical numbers include Put On Your Sunday Clothes, Ribbons Down My Back, Before the Parade Passes By, Elegance, It Only Takes A Moment and So Long, Dearie.

Symphony Silicon Valley, on stage with chorus and Ms. Dolly Levi herself, Tony-award-winning Leslie Uggams, brings you the music and story of Broadway's charming  matchmaker, Hello, Dolly!  -- In Concert!

My Fair Lady
Saturday 8:00 pm January 22, 2011
Sunday 2:30 pm January 23, 2011
Music by Frederick Loewe
Book & lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
Based on Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

Favorite songs like Wouldn't It Be Loverly, With a Little Bit of Luck, The Rain In Spain, I could Have Danced All Night and Get Me To The Church On Time tell the story of Eliza Doolittle, a lowly flower girl reinvented by phonetics professor Henry Higgins into the Belle of the high society ball.  What started as a friendly bet turns into a heart-warming tale of the power of transformation in one of America's most beloved musicals.

Onstage with the Symphony Silicon Valley orchestra and chorus,  Broadway luminaries along with other national and local musical theater notables, will bring you the music and story of Lerner & Loewe's My Fair Lady-- In Concert!

Man of La Mancha
Saturday 8:00 pm March 19, 2011
Sunday 2:30 pm March 20, 2011
Music by Mitch Leigh
Lyrics by Joe Darion
Book by Dale Wasserman

MAN OF LA MANCHA is a remarkable show and one of the great theater successes of our time. This is a play-within-a-play, based on Cervantes' "Don Quixote." We have a poignant story of a dying old man whose impossible dream takes over his mind. It's All the Same, Dulcinea, I'm Only Thinking of Him, The Impossible Dream, I Really Like Him and Little Bird remain in your thoughts and your soul well after the lights come back up. His dream is Everyman's dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman's great adventure. Somehow, the footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the "Man of La Mancha" speaks for humankind.

Join Broadway in Concert for this ravishing musical. Two performances only, in our exciting concert format with featured singers and full orchestra on stage.
