Intermountain Opera Bozeman is set to present Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s beloved fairy tale montage Into the Woods early this month. Performances will take place February 3rd–5th, and 10th–12th. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30pm, with a Sunday matinee to follow at 3pm. All will be held at Downtown Bozeman’s Ellen Theatre.
Into the Woods follows the Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Jack and his mother, who wishes their cow would give milk; and Cinderella, who wishes to go to the festival. We learn that a witch has cursed the Baker, and they set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is eventually granted, with sometimes disastrous results.
Directed by Josh Shaw, Into the Woods explores what happens, for better or for worse, when your wishes come true.
