Notes & Reviews:

A monumental work of "choral grandeur and melodic richness" (The New York Times) * A true classic of American musical theater, this tale of life on the Mississippi from the 1880s to the 1920s is both a poignant love story and a powerful reminder of the bitter legacy of racism * "A triumph—a stylish, fast-paced and colorful show that had the capacity audience on its feet, cheering loud and long" (Chicago Classical Review) * Featuring such songbook classics as “Ol’ Man River” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man”- a stylish, exuberant production from the San Francisco Opera * With Heidi Stober as Magnolia Hawks, Ellie Mae Chipley as Kirsten Wyatt, Frank Schultz as John Bolton and Steve Baker in the role of Patrick Cummings –The roles of Cap’n Andy and his wife Parthy are taken by Emmy winner Bill Irwin and Harriet Harris * 2 DVDs in luxury digipak, with extensive bonus
