MasterVoices | Orchestra of St. Luke's | Ted Sperling, Conductor
A huge hit when it premiered in New York in 1903, Victor Herbert’s Babes in Toyland hasn’t seen a major revival in New York City in over 85 years. Full of glorious melodies, Babes in Toyland tells a story that is both amusing and scary: villainous Uncle Barnaby plots the deaths of his young niece and nephew, Alan and Jane, in order to gain their inheritance. After many twists and turns, the siblings, with the help of several Mother Goose characters, thwart his efforts and bring happiness back to Toyland. MasterVoices will present the original score in its full orchestration, including beloved songs “Toyland”, “March of the Toys”, and “I Can’t Do the Sum”, giving the audience a rare chance to experience this musical extravaganza afresh.
