If You Can Find Me

An evening with music by Stephen Sondheim

If You Can Find Me

An empty theatre at night…  A mysterious visitor.

NI Opera Studio presents a tale of escape, longing, and love in an unexpected place, set against the evocative music of Stephen Sondheim ahead of the NI Opera and Lyric Theatre co-production of Sweeney Todd.

A cabaret-style performance of songs from Follies, Evening Primrose, A Little Night Music, Company, Merrily we Roll Along.

Sondheim

”Murphy excels as the enchanting maid. Her duet with wide-eyed Scanlon, ‘Take Me to the World’, finally shows off the considerable dynamic range of her beautiful soprano voice… NI Opera Studio’s continued experimentation with storytelling succeeds in showcasing the young singing talent on the island, and giving a chance for singers to develop their acting skills under a range of directors.” Alan in Belfast
