Premium Seating: $45; General Admission: $30; Student: Free

Internationally renowned composer of Arizona Opera’s Riders of the Purple Sage and musicals such as Gunmetal Blues, Craig Bohmler brings us the finest of his Broadway-style and operatic songs. Joined by four friends, Joshua Dennis, tenor, Trisha Ditsworth, singer/actor/dancer, Rusty Ferracane, singer/actor, and Laura Wilde, soprano, Craig’s music will move, enchant and inspire in this evening of review of one of Arizona’s own and beloved music makers. Craig’s works have been widely performed in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan and two of his musicals (Enter the Guardsmen and Gunmetal Blues) have been introduced on London’s West End and Off-Broadway. His most recent opera, Riders of the Purple Sage, based on Zane Grey’s best-selling 1912 novel, is the first “operatic western” premiered by Arizona Opera, for whom Craig is currently the Composer in Residence.
