Light in the Piazza Lyrics
The Light in the Piazza is musical from Broadway, based on the book of Craig Lucas. Music and lyrics were written by American composer A. Guettel. Partly the basis is Elizabeth Spencer’s novel, transporting the reader in the 1950th year and telling the story of the tragic love of younglings, American and Italian.
Largely this musical pays tribute to the era of classic neo-romanticism. Strong opera singing, structured music, an incredible cast – all of the above elements the audience can see and hear in The Light In The Piazza. Color added with the fact that half of his compositions sung on pure Italian. To a greater extent this applies to male parties of M. Morrison (Fabrizio – popular Italian name) and M. Berresse (Giuzeppe, his father).
The first show on Broadway was on April 2005. Creation was warmly welcomed by both the audience & critics. Stay on the wide stage was limited to 504 performances. In the same year, The Light In The Piazza was the winner of numerous prestigious awards, including six Tonies and 5 Drama Desks. Columnist The New York Times Ben Brantley called the musical ambitious and daunting. He also noted the extraordinary vocal abilities of artists and excellent work of costumiers.
